    I agree with Dr. Oz, all students should learn about the basic computer programming. More classes should also be offered to those who want to pursue a career towards computers. This will prepare them for the future, since everything nowadays is all technology based.

    When I first started these classes, I was so skeptical about putting my information out there. After awhile I kept signing in to many web 2.0 technologies and posting my pictures and using Facebook that it becomes the norm and you put it all behind you that you forget the dangers that are out there like identity theft. Students need to now that whatever pics or videos they send through their cell phones can easily be uploaded to the Internet in a matter of seconds. There have already been incidences where HS girls post personal photos of themselves to their boyfriends and when they get into a fight, those images are uploaded in spite of and they are hurt and betrayed. It is known as cyber bullying and can cause someone a great deal of emotional distress that can lead to suicides.

    To Adam, I think when something happens to these students they will remember the crazy old man that told them to be careful what they post. I have a teenager as well and I tell him, but he thinks I am overprotective, over exaggerating and crazy as well. They think they are invisible and that they are young and that is what they do and want to share with others. We can just let them know the facts and educate them and hope that it sinks in and be cautious when they are about to post something they may be doubtful, hopefully they will think twice about uploading it.
