Why new media–including blogging–are important.

This report on Teens and Social Media from the Pew Internet and American Life Project confirms how young people are indeed using multiple forms of technologies for conversation and sharing content. (BTW, email is not on the list of cool forms of communication. Teens today are much more likely to communicate via cell phone or by addressing each other on Facebook of MySpace.) What does this mean for education? I think blogging is an important tool of which we should be making greater use.
