How Young People Perceive Social Media

Thanks to EDtalks for this video clip of Eva-Maria Salikhova. Eva-Maria is a twenty year old international speaker and certified coach who is living her dream: to bridge the gap of misunderstanding between teenagers and adults around the globe. She is the author of the world's first parenting book written by a teenager; provocatively titled "You Shut Up!". At ELF 2010 Eva-Maria talked about the way young people use social media.

I especially liked her summing up statement "Change is a normal part of society, it's just like brushing your teeth." If only everyone thought like this....

Thanks to Eva-Maria for sharing her perspective.
