Top of Form
In the lecture for this module, we read this study from the American Academy of Pediatrics (2011): http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/127/4/800.full.pdf.
The site demonstrates some of the issues inherent in social media and its effect on children, adolescents, and families, and it gives guidance on the risks and benefits, cyber-bullying, online harassment, sexting, and privacy concerns.
After reading the recommendations or doing your own search on general recommendations about the use of social media, create a pamphlet you could hand out to parents at a back-to-school night for middle or high school students. The pamphlet (use a template from word) should include:
· Benefits of using social media
· Risks of using social media
· More information on one specific topic you find applicable or interesting (e.g. cyber-bullying)
· Information should be age-appropriate
Be sure to include the source(s) you used and submit an APA formatted reference page. Submit your completed assignment by following the directions linked below.
