CMCH Synopsis: A large group of English students were surveyed about their internet and cell phone use. The majority of them used both kinds of technology. Boys were more likely to use the internet to download music, find information about and buy goods and services, while girls were more likely to use the internet for email and educational research. Most students used the internet 2-4 hours per week. Boys tended to use the internet more often than girls did. Students who made more phone calls also tended to send more text messages and more email. The two technologies seem to go together for these adolescents. Center on Media and Child Health
