  • Thank you for all your comments. Now I have worked with all parts of Domain 3 as you suggested, it has become clearer to me that we have to think carefully and well about how we teach and educate our children in this world of technology. We have to make them think because they can go on the Net at any time so our messages need to be clear. Children can become very involved then, as George has suggested. We have to think so we use technology and our lessons to engage students in a real way.
