The purpose of this research has been to examine youth consumption of high-speed internet technology and online interactive services and their impact on school learning, social learning and well-being. With the advent of increased speed and capability of the internet, interest in the impact social media and internet usage on youth, social capital, youth anxiety and stress has been topical. Issues including cyber-bullying, stalking, impersonating others, hacking and spying, and bearing on personal brand have all been of interest to researchers with little research focussing on the positive learning outcomes such as school performance and social learning for this cohort. This research project investigates 10-14 years olds' attitudes to the internet, online practices and online usage to ascertain the relationship to learning and well-being.
