I saw an article on The weblogg-ed called Study: Young Kids Online about how the internet has great oppurtunites but also the risk is out there and how easy it is to acess the wrong information it is a preety good article.
Dear Mr. Richardson,
I found this article interesting on how companies suck kids into products through advertisement. I really think the internet is becoming to "adultish" for young kids. They have to access to MySpace or Facebook and other communicating sites which have predators on them and with that these websites have ads that suck kids into it and steal information. Advertisers reach out for children because they are more prone to fall for a trick. A little example is websites is the ads that say for example, “break a mailbox and get 10 free ringtones”. These are temping for kids to try and they are fake and bad. I agree when you say the internet provides a good chance for kids to learn but the risk the internet provides is there to. Good article!
