Digital Drugs ?

I know I am a beginner when it comes to the technology of today, but I never thought I would hear the term digital drugs. I was shocked when this aired on the 6 p.m. news today. I can not believe that someone actually took the time to figure out what frequency and sound levels would affect the brain in this matter. I learned something tonight. I am glad that Mustang Schools took the initiative to warn parents in their school district. I was also glad to see that some of the student interviewed had told their friends this was not safe and chose not to download the music to their mp3 players. This is also scary. My 13 year old niece, or other children for that matter, could download these songs innocently and end up seriously hurt after listening to it. I wonder where this topic would fit into digital citizenship?

  1. This is so crazy... so the students download music and the frequencies and sound waves mess with their ears and give them the same kind of high as real drugs? This is a very interesting post. I think I would like to read up more on this topic because it sounds facinating
