I just received permission to post this message sent to me over the weekend.
…the father of one of my students is currently serving in Iraq and today he left 2 comments on his son’s blog. The child was so thrilled that his father had done this. That moment just reaffirmed how wonderful this process is and what powerful things can happen! I am still teary-eyed thinking about it and the boy’s reaction.
Can we become so frightened of new technologies that we become blind to the potentials? Can we get the media to pay attention to connections and not just the threats?
