Eyes Wide Open

We learn how parents and educators scramble to keep up with children's technology learning curve in books like The Big Disconnect: Protecting Childhood and Family Relationships in the Digital Age by Catherine Steiner-Adair (Read her Independent School article "Your Student in Class vs. Your Student Online") and the Young Adult Literature book Feed by M. T. Anderson.

It is crucial that we look at the BIG picture of the future of technology. My eyes became wide open after viewing this TED Talk. If you scare easily, you may want to pass on this one. If you want to learn more about what Marc Goodman has to say, read his new book Future Crimes: Everyone Is Connected, Everyone Is Vulnerable and What We Can Do About It.
