What and how are we teaching?

This is a poem, written by Scott McLeod on his blog 'Dangerously irrelevant - technology, leadership, and the future of schools' is a challenge to parents and teachers who are frightened of the way technology is being used in schools. I challenge you with it too!

Don't teach your kids this stuff. Please!

dear parent

teacher

administrator

board member

don't teach your kids to read

for the Web

to scan

RSS

aggregate

synthesize

don't teach your kids to write

online

pen and paper aren't going anywhere

since when do kids need an audience?

no need to hyperlink

make videos

audio

Flash

no connecting, now

no social networking

or online chat

or comments

or PLNs

blogs and twitter?

how self-absorbed

what a bunch of crap

and definitely, absolutely, resolutely, no cell phones

block it all

lock it down

keep it out

it's evil, you know

there's bad stuff out there

gotta keep your children safe

don't you know collaboration is just another word for cheating?

don't you know how much junk is out there?

haven't you ever heard of sexting?

of cyberbullying?

a computer 24-7? no thanks

I don't want them

creating

sharing

thinking

learning

you know they're just going to look at porn

and hook up with predators

we can't trust them

don't do any of it, please

really

'cause I'm doing all of it with my kids

can't wait to see who has a leg up in a decade or two

can you?

  1. Seeking College Paper Writing help becomes absolutely essential for students during their college years. They get engaged in various extracurricular activities and part-time jobs besides college curriculum. Hence, managing the burden of assignments becomes quite a cumbersome job. Overburdened with responsibilities, they depend on assignment writing services to accomplish their career goals.
    Taking accounting assignment help from authentic service providers can be of great help while dealing with the burden of several unavoidable responsibilities. They help you to compose stellar assignments every time and save your precious time during exams.

  2. Hey, smut fans. I’ve got some good news and some bad news for you. The bad news is I blew a bunch of money in the back room of the local titty bar. The good news is that the tight budget helped me get more intimately familiar with some of the free porno tube out there. I recently cranked out a few to the collection over at, and I’ve got some observations to share with you bunch of perverts.
    The site is getting more than 16 million visits a month in its current incarnation, but you may have known VEPorns by one of its previous names. It was Porn, then VE-Porn, followed by VEPorn. They’ve never had a catchy name, and their header still calls it FXPorn. Despite their gross ineptitude at naming the site, they’ve managed to keep it going for a while now. VEPorns currently has around 30,000 sex movies ready to stream for free.

    The first thing you’ll see when you pull up Porn tube is, you guessed it, a bunch of porn. The screencaps don’t move when you hover over them, but they’re all crisp, professional shots from big studios. Brazzers, Mofos, BangBros, and RealityKings are just a few of the recognizable names on the front page. It may be free, but you’re not getting off-brand bitches jerking dicks behind a 7-11 for meth money. This is the good stuff.
    The Pornstars page lists around 9,000 pornstars, a lot of the faces and racks you’ll recognize. You can browse them by Featured sluts or in alphabetical order. There’s no easy way to search the list by hair color, tit size, or other attributes. The picture menu is appetizing as hell and should be more than enough for most monkey-spankers.

    A page of categories lists studios along with depraved acts like Threesome and Anal. There’s Squirting, Public, and Hardcore, but fetish freaks will feel left out. There’s no Fetish niche, nor do they fuck with any kind of bondage, feet, or leather clips.

    That said,has content from a lot of sites. You’re bound to find some really kinky stuff if you use the search function. Tranny ain’t a category, but the search bar can find a few chicks with dicks for you.

  5. It is true that technology can be more harmful than good if used in the wrong hands whereas it is true vice versa as well that in safe hands it has more good effect than bad. For example as a student and a young father I required assistance in getting my dissertation done as I could not manage my home, my job, my kids and studies at the same time. I needed to pay someone to write my dissertation for me and I scored exceptionally well on it. Which resulted in me getting a better job and life. All due to technology as I did everything online.

  12. The Statistics Assignment Help provider that nailed down my project claimed that the company's pricing experts underrated the order. However, he completed it in time without mistakes. On seeing the solutions, I pitied him because they were quite hard to build. I then decided to tip him a few bucks to cover for whatever he missed. Meanwhile, he's very insightful when it comes to Chi-square analysis using R. I recommend his Statistics Homework Help services.

  13. The Economics homework help provider has never been late on an order. I made him my favorite assignment writer a few months ago and he's never failed me in terms of punctuality. He's also always correct. I've never fallen below 65 since I started enjoying his Economics Assignment Help, and I'll keep using his services for the rest of my varsity studies. I endorse him to all Economics students who need help with their assignments.
