I thought I would talk a bit about Social Media. It’s now the way we get information through the internet, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. etc. etc. We are all overwhelmed with so much information at our fingertips, I sincerely cannot imagine what it is like as a child to have access to so much information.
Remember when, we as kids (us older ones), would resource our information by watching the news (if our parents allowed). I went to the library to research for school projects, I phoned my friends using a dial phone (yes rotary). If we didn’t write letters to old friends, we just lost touch. I printed and (snail) mailed photos to my family in England, and hoped they would receive them in one piece. I would draw pictures with paper and pencils, play with my toy piano, toboggan, have snow ball fights and play baseball.
Today, kids receive information on social media, Facebook Twitter, Instagram etc. Although much of this is accurate, do we know how it is sourced? Today, when our kids research, there is a world of information on their Ipads, phones or computers, the information is endless. Amazing “apps” downloaded from the internet have taken the place of pen and paper. They send photos electronically, giving friends and family a large amount of instant pictures. They create music using some incredible programs making it easy for them to learn. Even at play, Social Media has taken the place of getting outside. Tobogganing is now a video game requiring skill, snowball fights have turned into online video fights, but yes kids still play baseball, both online and in the field.
