Thought Provoking This program encourages us to look at and rethink the use of digital technology. Before watching this program I was in the opinion that we need to limit our childrens access to this media. However, after viewing this program it made me rethink my stance, montior yes of course but limit no. This is the future and we need to make sure our children have every opportunity to function in it. This program is a must see for everyone, every age and the most interesting discussions will follow.

if you have kids, especially those supposedly suffering from ADHD, than see this program to understand the world they live in and will live in, it is invaluable.

Fascinating and Frightening
Review by Burton B. on 07/17/20 review stating Fascinating and Frightening
This show is amazing. It helps to see what our technology is and can do to us. It is a MUST watch for anyone and everyone that uses any technology - cell phones, computers, PDAs - the whole spectrum! The topics are thought provoking, enlightening and frightening. I cannot recommend this show enough! Great work!

Sensory Explosion
Review by Mim M. on 07/17/20 review stating Sensory Explosion
I was in awe watching this. All I could think was how much I wanted my daughter to see this since she is so concerned with my 6 year old grandson getting addicted to technology. Controlled addiction is the way to go for kids. They crave it and it will be their lives. Fascinating beyond belief.

I will use this video in my online and blended graduate education courses. It presents the current information on new technologies better than any video I could create on my own. This exceptional video shows how our society and educators are coping with virtual world experiences--in our real world.

Excellent insight
Review by Karen C. on 07/17/20 review stating Excellent insight
This DVD gave great insight into todays students. We watched it as part of a series we are beginning for our faculty to discuss a specific issue related to todays college students. It is a terrific reference also for our newer (actually, more seasoned, too!) faculty.
