In the article “Internet Use and Child Development: The Techno-Microsystem” I took away the information that the Ecological systems theory assumes that child development is the consequence of ongoing reciprocal and spiraling interactions between the child and his/her microsystem (immediate home, school, and community environments).” The increasing presence of digital technologies in children's immediate environments suggests In this study parents and teachers completed rating scales of child social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development.

The developmental consequences of Internet use varied as a function of elements of the microsystem ( home and school characteristics) and elements of the technology.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
