January 22nd, 2008 - Growing Up Online

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.

    Thanks, Matt.... Anything you can do to provide resources to help parents stay ahead of the game where technology is concerned would be invaluable!! I'll be the first one to sign up!!
