(Video version) We live in an amazing age of global travel and communications, which explorers like Lewis & Clark probably never imagined could exist. The information landscape today is similar to an amazing buffet of food: Full of choices, fraught with challenges, and ripe with opportunities. Like the ocean, the Internet can be a dangerous place but also an extremely engaging and fun destination. Just like responsible parents who teach their children to swim in the ocean and make good decisions when they are in and on it, as educators we need to help our students learn to safely and effectively use the Internet in constructively powerful ways.
