How well are we connecting?

Depending on the proficiency level of your students, you might like to use this in class when the topic to be studied is 'Young People and the social media'. 

'We, as human beings, think that through social networks, we’ve somehow become more social creatures. The problem with this theory is, the more we 'connect' online, the less actual human interactions we have, making us actually fairly unsocial. A new video breaks down exactly how the social aspects of human beings have evolved and transformed, showing how we’ve regressed from a social standpoint.

Shimi Cohen shows exactly what’s wrong with our social structure now, and how we manipulate how we want to be presented to peers, family members, and potential mates on social media, rather than having vulnerable and genuine conversations in real time. Check out this video below, and take a moment to truly assess how you conduct yourself, both online and in person.'
