Round Table Discussion

Last night, I had the opportunity to partake in a round table discussion about various social, ethical, and legal issues related to technology. I found this discussion to be very proactive and I was pleased to discover that the majority of the participants are genuinely concerned about protecting children from online predators. In addition, cyberbullying was a main topic of concern. I am addressing this topic on my blog because I believe that with parental controls, cyberbullying will be reduced. A main argument addressed was that parents are not aware of inappropriate internet usage because they are not monitoring the usage or they are unaware of how to monitor it.
