  • Well I think one thing were learning is that theres quite a lot of good things that are going

  • on in social networking sites that really are not getting talked about in the popular media,

  • and so our study is really trying to look at what are some of those things

  • and then how can we help students teachers and parents think about these sites

  • in a way that can actually be beneficial.

  • I think definitely you see these sites really helping foster creativity

  • and communication in kids.

  • The kids are telling us that these sites really encourage them to express their opinions,

  • thoughts and emotions in very creative ways.

  • Like, you see kids that might have an interest in video editing, they learn a little bit

  • about it in school, and then because something sparks their interest they end

  • up creating a video, circulating it on their myspace pages, people find out about it,

  • they get all kinds of feedback on it and before you know theyve promoted themselves

  • and the issue they care about through this myspace community.

  • I think Ive also heard a lot of students talk about how its helping them

  • with their communication skills, so students who say its really hard for them to kind

  • of express themselves in writing have found blogs as a way to share their poetry

  • or talk about their ideas with other students and because they get comments on it

  • from friends they trust that encourages them to write even more.

  • Contrary to popular belief we find, were finding that students

  • from low income families are actually very connected.

  • That they are students who are finding ways to connect to the internet pretty much every day,

  • and often times these students, people dont usually think of them this way,

  • but they do have a computer at home, sometimes its a family owned computer connected

  • to the internet, sometimes its a laptop, and theyre using internet just like everyone else,

  • so I think they are very connected technologically

  • and I also think theyre pretty savvy.

  • So again, because most of them are going to their myspace,

  • predominately Myspace account every day, they are practicing these technological fluencies

  • that we want them to develop and theyre taking just the little bit of instruction they get

  • in school like how to use Adobe Photoshop like some other skills youd want students to develop

  • and then because theye interested in what they are doing

  • on Myspace they are practicing those skills and going even further.

  • There are some cautions that the kids themselves have identified and one of them being

  • that myspace can be a distraction away from other things they really have to do like work

  • and school and so I think for parents and teachers just talking about time management

  • and how to use Myspace as an effective study break rather than,

  • you know, get on there to long.

  • I also you know, have heard them talk about thinking about privacy issues and trust issues

  • in such big online communities, Myspace is a global community.

  • So the students have said maybe being able to talk to parents and teachers about how

  • to stay safe, how to be a responsible user of the internet or what we all a Digital Citizen,

  • would be conversations that they would welcome that would really help them.

  • Ive had several students talk to me about how theyve actually used myspace

  • for what it was intended to do, which is network, so when we talk to students who are

  • in their senior year of high school and theyre trying to apply to college and get admitted

  • to college and decide where they want to go and several of them have said to me

  • that through Myspace and Facebook they were able to make a good college decision and network

  • with other teens in colleges across the country that they never could afford to visit

  • or even talk on the phone, but just find out more about what college and maybe major

  • and career is a good fit for them by networking through these sites

  • and I think thats a whole really untalked about use of Myspace and Facebook that we

  • as educators could help students realize and do effectively.

Well I think one thing were learning is that theres quite a lot of good things that are going
