Today's Teen Content Creators Are Tomorrow's Law Students
Fully half of all teens and 57 percent of teens who use the Internet could be considered Content Creators. ... The results highlight that this is a generation comfortable with content-creating technology.
Some Key findings:
- 33 percent of online teens share their own creative content online, such as artwork, photos, stories or videos.
- 32 percent say that they have created or worked on webpages or blogs for others, including groups they belong to, friends or school assignments.
- 22 percent report keeping their own personal webpage.
- 19 percent of online teens keep a blog, and 38 percent of online teens read blogs. 1
- 9 percent of Internet-using teens say they remix content they find online into their own artistic creations.
And About Blogs:
Teens are often much more enthusiastic authors and readers of blogs than their adult counterparts. Teen bloggers, led by older girls, are a major part of this tech-savvy cohort. Teen bloggers are more fervent Internet users than non-bloggers and have more experience with almost every online activity in the survey.
Law profs, law-related instructional designers (read today's legal publishers transformed) and IT planners take note. The survey participants are 5-10 years away from entering law school. Courseware such as TWEN may have to replace its current teacher-driven format with a more personalized student-driven format, a "My Con Law" course model rather than the current "Professor Bland's Con Law" course model.
