    "Welcome to the Digital Education Research Network (DERN) for 2014. At the start of each school and academic year teaching subjects and courses for the coming year are often reviewed and resources allocated. Questions invariably arise about the benefits of learning with digital technologies and the best ways to deploy digital technologies; that is, what are the current technology trends?"

    The biggest take-away for me was that adults were largely lacking presence in the online life of youth. And, even though this was less true for tweens, the focus was primarily on consequences for poor choices, not digital citizenship. For me, this reflects a larger cultural shift that is occurring and the continued blurring of ethics/morality and the destructive influence of Hollywood.
