Looking for Student Essays

The International Society for Technology in Education's online magazine, Learning & Leading with Technology, is looking for 500-word essays by teens on student use of Facebook, MySpace, and other social networks:

  • How important is Facebook/MySpace/texting to you?

  • Are your friends on Facebook/MySpace the same as friends you see in person?

  • Are you different to your friends when you text them vs. when you're talking in person?

  • How does the time you spend texting, or on Facebook or MySpace, affect your development as a person?
