Factors that influence health: An introduction
What factors influence our health? A lot of attention is focused on people's behaviour - their decisions to smoke, drink, over-eat and so on - with strong messages about the changes needed to become healthier. But people's behaviour is influenced by circumstances and events, friends and family, education, job prospects, income, housing and environment. In this unit we look at how these factors, these wider social determinants, work together to influence our health for good or ill.Author(s):

Social Networking: An Evolution in Communication Media
Most public schools block social networking websites. I put this video together to get a little perspective. It is an attempt to see the forest from the trees. Basically, my thesis is that the internet is a social network and a communication medium. Communication media are only fully used to their potential if it is a two-way medium. Teaching students how to use the internet without letting them publish, blog, tweet, etc. is like teaching them how to read without allowing them to write.
