Rosen presents in his book. Rosen laments that, unfortunately, this is not done often enough.
Me, MySpace and I brings attention to yet another key concern with social networking, both at home and in the classroom — the digital footprint. Rosen spends a chapter describing the many ways our digital footprint is created and how we must take care to protect it. From the value of blogging, Rosen moves to the impact of television on teen sexuality, his opinions backed by numerous statistics and studies. The one fact that I did find shocking and almost unbelievable, definitely worthy of further investigation, is his claim that: The citation is listed here: Unwanted and wanted exposure to online pornography in a national sample of youth Internet Users.
I find this claim very unsettling as a parent and as an educator in an elementary school, and would like to further explore this claim in hopes of proving it wrong. Me, MySpace and I contained a lot of statistics, but was balanced by actual quotes from conversations with real parents and adolescents in real situations. I think the impact that Me MySpace and I has on education is a positive one for those educators who might still be fearful of the use of social media in education and at home.
In many cases, this fear stems from ignorance — ignorance about how students could actually benefit, ignorance about effective controls that could be imposed, and ignorance about the influence that proactive parents can have on a positive social networking experience. Me MySpace and I helps to define social media in terms of these things. This can only mean positive things for educators and for the use of social networking in the classroom.

As a teacher, the thing that stood out most for me is the data on how much media is consumed by teenagers on a daily basis. This means that in a seven day week, nearly forty five hours are devoted to the use of at least one form of media" page 6. The implications on students and le As a teacher, the thing that stood out most for me is the data on how much media is consumed by teenagers on a daily basis. The implications on students and learning are great. Teachers need to realize that the old methods of teaching are not going to hold the attention of today's learners.
This growing trend towards multimedia needs to be transferred into today's classrooms. This book provides parents with the knowledge and tools to teach their children how to navigate safely online. Rosen provides research data and psychological theory to help parents understand their children and their use of media. He also provides information and advice that will aid parents in their struggle to help guide their children through their wired adolescence page I thought it was refreshing to read comments from real parents and children about their daily interactions together and with media.
It was a break from all of the statistics in the book - there were a lot. Another nice feature were the online resources located in the last chapter of the book. Parents would be able to find more information in their particular area of need. Each chapter in the book addresses an aspect of cyberspace and how they can have positive, as well as negative, effects on teenagers - internet addiction, sexuality, pornography, cyber-bullying, etc.
I like how the chapters were set up. Rosen gives an overview of a particular aspect of cyberspace, for example, virtual relationships. The information and data are followed by suggestions and a portion of questions and answers. The predictability of each chapter allows for easy navigation through the book.

Overall, I thought the book gave good information for parents who are concerned about their child and the unknowns in cyberworld. I think the suggestions and strategies in each chapter would be especially helpful for parents searching for ways to connect with their child. Rosen covers everything from blogging to sexual predators. A very current and relevant handbook for parents of the net generation. I think the information on virtual relationships - online friendships, groups and forums, different communities - addresses a huge part of a child's education in that children today are learning about their social identity through the internet.
Rosen points out that social networking sites, such as MySpace, promote and reinforce communication skills that help build confidence when offline page The chapter on cyberbullying is also relevant in education today. Teachers need to be aware as much as parents about the dangers of internet bullying and everyone needs to be aware of their schools Acceptable Usage Policies page I give this book a rating of 3 out of 5 stars. It was a little hard to get through at times, but like I said the advice and suggestions are worth the read for parents with children in middle school and high school.
