Do you socialize more virtually than you do in reality?

There are lots of adults out there who are scratching their heads and trying to figure you guys out. Some people refer to you as the Net Generation or Digital Natives because you have never known a time without the internet and all that it has brought to the world. Many of these adults wonder and worry about how your future will be different than earlier generations because of this.

Read the brief write-up on The New York Times Learning Network and answer the questions they pose to students:

Do you have enough opportunities to interact with peers in spontaneous, real ways? Do you think there’s a link between the rise of media and the increase in bullying? How can schools and parents help kids take part more in “the real social world”?

Or just write about what you think of all this adult worry and analysis about your exposure to technology.
