The School Library Journal posted an article about how many students talk about school work on social networking sites.
From the article…
…”almost 60 percent of students who use social networking sites such as Friendster, Facebook, and even Webkins and Nick.com, which are geared toward younger kids, say they talk about educational topics. And surprisingly, more than 50 percent specifically talk about schoolwork, says a recent study by the National School Boards Association.
What exactly are they chatting about? Fifty-nine percent of online students say they talk about a range of educational topics, including college or college planning; learning outside of school; news; careers or jobs; politics; ideas; religion or morals; and schoolwork.”Check out the School Library Journal article here.
