Growing Up Online

It took me some time to getting around to watching this Frontline show on "Growing Up Online," but I immediately told my wife that this is "must-see TV." Really, required viewing by anyone with children. Not because it is explains the dangers of the Web, but because it is an incredibly balanced report on the effect of the read/write or participative world of the Internet. I wish it had showcased some good examples of educators using Web 2.0 tools in the classroom, tappping into the incredible changes taking place in communication, but even without that I felt that I had watched a program of incredible thoughtfulness.

Can be watched in its entirety at http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/kidsonline/, or by searching for it on Google Video or YouTube.
