  7. 7. Adapted from<br />As with all Internet use, some of the sites presented here may today, tomorrow or next week contain content that is not student appropriate. This is usually more of an issue with sites where people can upload their own content. How you choose to deal with this will depend on your students and your school policies. Generally I believe that the value of these tools on these websites far outweigh the possible dangers they present. In addition, it is critical that we teach students skills of media literacy, discretion, and good judgment. Trying to block them from everything that is potentially objectionable may not be the most effective way to accomplish this.<br />
  8. 8. believes that years of computer use creates children that<br /> “… think differently from us. They develop hypertext minds. They leap around. It’s as though their cognitive structures were parallel, not sequential.” <br />(Prensky, 2001a). <br />In other words, today’s students may not be well-suited to the more linear progression of learning that most educational systems employ.<br />
