Text Messaging: Is it Safe?

Research a minimum of three websites that document the effects of text messaging on human health (ICS3C, ICS3U) or on issues such as literacy (ICS4C, ICS4U). 

In a Google Presentation named "Full Name Course Code Text Messaging Assignment":
  • Point out any negative or positive effects, and your understanding of why these effects occur.
  • List all resources you use for your research in proper bibliographic format. (see http://www.aresearchguide.com/12biblio.html#23 for details on how to cite web resources)
Be sure to share your document with your instructor (able to edit).

Expectations covered by this assignment:
  • ICS3C D1.1 describe negative effects of computer use on the environment (e.g., creation of waste, unnecessary printing of emails, heavy power consumption) and on human health (e.g., exposure to radiation, musculoskeletal disorders, eye strain, various health consequences of reduced activity levels);
  • ICS3U D1.1 describe the negative effects of computer use on the environment (e.g., creation of e-waste, excessive use of paper resulting from unnecessary printing of files and emails, heavy power consumption) and on human health (e.g., exposure to radiation, musculoskeletal disorders, eye strain, mental health problems resulting from social isolation, various health consequences of reduced activity levels);
  • ICS4C D1.1 outline and apply strategies to reduce the impact of computers and related technologies on the environment (e.g., reduce, reuse, and recycle; turn computers and monitors off at end of day; participate in printer cartridge recycling) and on human health (e.g., ergonomic standards);
  • ICS4U D1.1 outline strategies to reduce the impact of computers and related technologies on the environment (e.g., reduce, reuse, and recycle turn computers and monitors off at end of day; participate in printer cartridge recycling) and on human health (e.g. ergonomic standards);
