Are the Millennials the Dumbest Generation

Do you have 1.6 minutes? Watch this new video from Don Tapscott.
Grown Up Digital – The Net Generation is Changing YOUR World
OK, go watch it. . . .
(Imagine I am humming the Jeopardy theme song here.)
Now, I think four million dollars in research might be worth buying the book for $18.45 US here.
If you’re a visual learner, try watching the rest of the Tapscott videos on YouTube. They’re short so they’re OK for my extra-short Boomer attention span (just kidding!).
Oh, and just in case you’ve missed some of the silliness, Check out the UK MailOnline:
Social websites harm children’s brains: Chilling warning to parents from top neuroscientist
One “top” UK scientist has according to the article surveyed exactly one teacher and now fears for an entire generation because she “believes” things might be happening to them physically. She “believes” bad things are happening. Call me crazy but I thought scientists used data and experiments and academic standards rather than fears, beliefs and conjecture. I always thought academics did studies and could provide proofs and data or infomation to underscore their points. Apparently that’s not needed anymore? I fear for these universities where professors can give interviews to the press and have their personal opinions and prejudices aired in the context of their universities’ good brand. Scary.
I’ll be interested in Tapscott’s study and data to see how it compares to these ‘scientists’ apparently unsupported beliefs.
