As important as it is to open children up to the "virtual world", it is also imperative that educators teach children how to be safe while using technology. Because not all children have computers in their homes, it is extremely necessary for teachers to monitor their students' internet usage and to make them aware of unsafe aspects of the internet. Teach children to be aware of their actions, as well as cautious of the actions of others out in the "virtual world".

The use of technology in the classroom is really important for children. As we all know, technology is an ever growing aspect of life, and if we don't teach children how to navigate the "virtual world", we will only be hurting them. If children are taught how to use technology at a young age, they will be so much more productive and useful in their lives.

I am going to be using blogs in a primary classroom to provide students with links and resources to educational sites that they can use in and outside of the classroom. Links will help them develop their technology skills and be helpful in their future. I hope these sites will be used when they're at home, to ensure that my students are learning outside the classroom as well. It is really important to expose children as early as possible to technology and all it has to offer because technology is becoming more and more popular and necessary in today's society.
