Week 5 questions part one and two

  

Week5 discussion question 1

Some experts believe that a healthy self-esteem is crucial to success, but what impact does digital technology have on the self-esteem of today’s young people? Stories of adolescents struggling with self-esteem, loss of confidence, or poor body image dominate media that, these days, exists heavily in digital format. Young people are online more than ever before and are bombarded with marketing and other elements that challenge or weaken the development of their self-esteem. The number of followers an adolescent has on social media can define his or her level of popularity and social acceptance.

In this Discussion, you will examine the development of self-esteem in adolescents and how digital technology might impact that development.

To Prepare for this Discussion:

· Review this week’s Learning Resources and consider how digital technology might impact the self-esteem in adolescents

· Search the Internet and/or the Walden library for at least two articles related to the impact of digital technology on the development of self-esteem in adolescents

By Day 3

Post an explanation of the impact digital technology has on the development of self-esteem in adolescents. Explain the advantages and disadvantages digital technology has on that development. Include at least one scholarly source. Use proper APA format and citations.

By Day 5

Discussion question 2

Social media is highly debated these days. One criticism is that it deprives people of human interaction, but the other side of that argument posits that those who frequent social media—whether adolescents or adults—are reaching out for more interaction. What do you believe?

For this Discussion, you consider the two sides of this debate and take a stance. You then find research that focuses on the impact social media has on relationships and socialization.

To Prepare for this Discussion:

· Consider the two statements: “social media gives you a sense of community” and “social media isolates you from others”

· Take a stance and select one of these statements to support

· Search the Internet and/or the Walden library for at least two scholarly articles related to the impact of social media on relationships and socialization
