the last few years the media has seemed to focus on the potential dangers
of the Internet rather than the potential it holds as an educational tool
that can enhance classroom learning. Because of
this skewed reporting many parents, administrators, teachers, and
community leaders are overly concerned about bringing the Internet into
their schools. It is therefore very
important that any educator who uses the technology also have an in-depth understanding of the potential dangers
that the Internet poses and what can be done to protect students from these dangers.
Armed with this information, teachers can both protect their students as
well as educate the public to the benefits of the technology.
