Digital Nation: Life on the Virtual Frontier

Last month PBS aired a Frontline special called Digital Nation [full streaming episode] which shared thoughts about how technology is transforming global culture and society. This episode was a review of life on the virtual frontier, and a follow up to a previous Frontline special called Growing Up Online.

Thoughts around digital distraction, connection and learning technology were some of the various topics around emerging technology trends. The last section introduced ideas for education in the digital age. This was a pretty good segment to spark some thoughts and continue to probe questions about how we utilize digital resources in our society.
