Technology Brings Connection and Stress

OK, this AP-MTV poll about technology and college students well summarizes my own feelings about technology. The good news is that technology brings a sense of connection and relationship. The bad news is that for many folks, technology creates more stress.

I found this paragraph about technology as a venue through which to share pain interesting:

“One in five say they’ve posted public messages on sites like Facebook seeking emotional support, while more than two-thirds say they’ve read public posts by friends pleading for such assistance. Women are more likely than men to post such messages or say they’ve seen them.”

Like most things, technology comes with ups and downs - highs and lows. Today try asking the kids you know what they love about technology, as well as some potential downsides to it.
