Middle Years Memo

Social media use continues to increase among teens.

Right now we are well on our way to our weeklong outdoor school experience, and I wanted to extol the benefits of the Great Outdoors with you all as it forces us to take a respite from technology in general and social media in particular.

Common Sense Media has recently released their 2018 teen social media survey and have produced a very interesting set of infographics that I’d encourage you to explore:
