The corridor of uncertainty: Let's all be careful out there - 5 views

  •  
    This is covered in an excellent presentation by David Truss who advocates a more balanced and enlightened attitude to our children's net habits. They're actually doing just what we did when we were young but in a different environment.

Weblogg-ed » No, Actually, You're Out of Balance - 14 views

  •  
    But here is the thing: the reality is that most of those folks who are concerned about kids needing balance are out of balance themselves, just in the opposite way. They're not online enough, not reading, writing, participating, connecting and creating in these spaces as much as they need to be to fully understand the implications of these technologies for their own learning and for the kids in their classrooms.

    Common Sense Media Education Program
  •  
    Kevin Jarrett pointed out to me that Common Sense media now has movie reviews for kids to help you determine what is appropriate for your children. Again, you have to take everything under advisement ad make decisions for yourselves but as long as we go to whatever Hollywood dishes out, they'll keep doing it. (After all, they did research and found that a "G" rating was a "death sentence" for a movie. That is crazy.)

A GeekyMomma's Blog: An Open Letter To My Students' Parents - 14 views

  •  
    Dear Parents,

    Sometimes, I get to witness some pretty exciting "Aha!" moments with the students. It's a thrill for me to be present as they have these experiences. I've just assumed they bring these moments home to you but I'm often surprised when I ask the students if they share what we are doing in class and too many of them respond with "I forgot" or "I was busy."

Amazon.com: A Tribe Apart: A Journey into the Heart of American Adolescence (Ballantine... - 0 views

  •  
    Why do teenagers so often seem like a different species? Journalist Patricia Hersch gives a troubling answer in her fascinating, up-close-and-personal look at what it means to be a teen in today's American high schools. Rather than interviewing "high-risk" teens (those already swept up in a cycle of drug use, gang violence, or unintended pregnancy, for example), Hersch focuses her attention on "regular kids"--adolescents who are average achievers on academic and social levels. In light of this, A Tribe Apart is all the more startling to read: Hersch's investigative approach makes it impossible for parents to shrug off their responsibilities by saying "That's not my kid." This is your kid.

PTA launches back to school webcasts for parents - 0 views

  •  
    National PTA (the parents organization for public school parents in the US) has launched a webcast to communicate with parents.

    Not sure where the podcast is, but it is probably linked here. It looks like a video. (It would be great to also rip the audio off and link as a podcast too, I think parents would find it useful.)

    One thing this does do is legitimize the webcast for parents. You can say "Look parents, PTA is webcasting, it must not be evil." For the use of this tool, I applaud PTA.

    I haven't listened to the webcast yet. Hope they turn it into to a podcast as my screentime is limited, but listen to things as I wash dishes and cook dinner (a nightly happening.)
