In our American history class we are researching contemporary issues and designing ways that people can take action and improve our community. Our group is focused on Negative effects of social media. This issue is important because its a huge problem today.This issue is complicated because it is caused by random teenagers online and it is through the web which we don’t have control over. However, we need to address it because it has serious effects like suicide,violence,misunderstandings, and ruined relationshipsn.It also has the long term effect of depression. To address this issue, we think that people should seek help by joining a afterschool program that we designed named Talk About It its a support group where teens feel safe and have people to share their experiences with. Some people might oppose this idea because they think its a waste of money and resources , but it is a good solution because you are surrounded by people who understand what you are going through and can relate to you. They would also feel more comfortable with teens than adults. To raise awareness about The Negative Effects of Social Media. We have made a prototype that is a Visual art piece that shows our AMAZING art work. Please give us any feedback you have about our prototype to help us improve it to help raise awareness about this important issue.
