Study Finds Link Between Facebook Use, Lower Grades in College
College students who use Facebook spend less time studying and have lower grade point averages than students who have not signed up for the social networking website, according to a pilot study at one university.
However, more than three-quarters of Facebook users claimed that their use of the social networking site didn’t interfere with their studies.
“We can’t say that use of Facebook leads to lower grades and less studying – but we did find a relationship there,” said Aryn Karpinski, co-author of the study and a doctoral student in education at Ohio State University.
International Technology in Education Mark
The International Technology in Education Mark (ITEM) is a new accreditation scheme for International Schools currently in pilot. Based on the UK’s ICT Mark and ISTE’s NETS, the scheme enables schools to self-review their ICT provision across all areas of the school, from administration to integrating ICT into the curriculum. ITEM sets out a structure of elements, strands and aspects to facilitate self-evaluation, benchmarking and action planning. The eight elements are:
* Leadership and Vision
* Learning Experiences
* Planning, Assessment & Evaluation
* Work and Learning
* Digital Citizenship
* Professional Growth and Practice
* Innovation and Creativity
