Hi all,
Last night PBS Frontline featured  "Growing Up Online", a documentary
that asks the question, "What does it mean to be part of the first
generation coming of age steeped in the culture of the Internet?"  The
film also includes a segment that features John Halligan (Essex
Junction), our guest here at Woodstock last week, that addresses the
role the computer and online chat environments played in his son's
death.  The entire program is available to view on the Fronline website
below.
I definitely think it's a topic worth exploring with our students.

Here's a link to yesterday's New York Times article that reviewed the
program.
