The following is a preview of the PBS Frontline piece titled, "Growing Up Online." It is scheduled to air on January 22nd at 8:00 CST (GMT6) on Milwaukee Public TV's Channel 36/digital channel 510 on Time Warner. A special thank you to Scott Meech for posting this out via Twitter! From what it looks like, this appears to be a relatively balanced approach to looking at this topic (at least in comparison to the Dateline series, "To Catch a Predator.") I'm hopeful that this reveals some of the potential of social media instead of blindly promoting urban legend, panic and fear. We'll see on the 22nd!
Special note for USM Parents-I am trying to arrange a live chat to take place as this special is airing. It would be a place for us to have a conversation about the Frontline piece as we are watching. If you are interested in the possibility of a chat, please email me or leave a comment below.
