A Teachers Post

From the dangerously irrelevant blog:

Don’t teach your kids this stuff. Please?

dear parent
  board member
don't teach your kids to read
  for the Web
  to scan
don't teach your kids to write
pen and paper aren't going anywhere
since when do kids need an audience?
no need to hyperlink
  make videos
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
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
'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?
