Raising Children in a Digital Village

We had our first Parent Forum of the year this Tuesday night at my school, and I spoke to about 25 parents (all aged children) about how Raising Children in a Global Village differs from the "Gutenberg Era" in which they all were raised. I'm experimenting with Voicethread , so I uploaded my PowerPoint, and then tried to comment, but I think our own Firewall settings at school are preventing me from doing so. I did embed the powerpoint onto a school Web page and uploaded the sound recording I made using a digital voice recorder--Olympus brand VN-480PC. I have to admit, the sound isn't great. I also provided links to most of the handouts I provided. Feel free to copy and use anything you'd like.
