Technology has penetrated all aspects of our lives, particularly among young people. This session includes three interesting studies that examined the influence of technology. One study examined the effectiveness of using podcasting review techniques in delivering health education contents. Another study reported the negative impact of technology on college students’ health risk behaviors. Authors from the last study will report the problems of sexting on college campus and suggest the strategies to address the problems.
