Today we started class by wrapping up the presentations on emerging technology as well as begin working on our lesson plans that incorporate technology. With such nice work on the presentations, I am looking forward to what everyone comes up with for their lesson plans.
On a totally unrelated note but technology based nonetheless, I was watching a behind-the-scenes special on NBC Dateline's "To Catch A Predator". As I'm sure you are all familiar with this show, it really does make you worry about your children or future children. Although there are some great uses of the Internet, the ability of other people to take advantage of young people is heightened and quite disturbing. Finishing its third season, Chris Hansen (the journalist) says that he will continue the show as long as there are still potential abusers out there.
