Facebook lowers exam results?

One wonders how facebook could truly be responsible for lowering exam results but this article suggests that it does Facebook 'lowers exam results by 20 per cent'.  The study is only small so I am not personally going to take it to seriously.

What this article and study do is provide some ammunition to all those in the educational arena, who are still resisting using technology themselves, or using it for learning.  

Nearly 10 years on in my work in the online, educational and business arena and still there is resistance, a lack of belief that technology can be used for learning or should I say, 'is' used in and for learning.

Change occurs slowly they say - pity as the www changes rapidly.
