Kaiser Family Foundation Study: Online Use

A national survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation was issued today--and the results are pretty shocking: With technology allowing nearly 24-hour media access, the amount of time young people spend with entertainment media has risen dramatically.

Today's 8 to 18 year olds devote an average of 7 hours and 38 minutes to using entertainment media per day. And, because they spend so much of that time using more than one medium at a time (for example, texting while listening to music), they actually cram 10 hours and 45 minutes worth of media content into those 7.5 hours.

Not surprisingly, those will extremely high usage had lower grades.
