Your Opinion About the Video

A new and controversial video about Texting while driving is getting a great deal of exposure right now. I wonder about it’s effectiveness? On one hand, it dramatically demonstrates the potential problem of this type of distraction which could “bring home” the message to teens that texting (or other distractions) while driving can be very dangerous. On the other hand, some research shows that this type of message only has a very short term effect if any. What do you think?

WWW BootCamp Now Online

World Wide Web Boot Camp

In 2005, I designed a CD Tutorial called the World Wide Web Boot Camp for School Counselors. Some of the content is a bit outdated although most of it still contains many useful tips, tricks, and shortcuts. I've decided to trim it down a bit with the parts that are most relevant and useful and publish it on this website .

As you already know, since 2005, much has changed and so I encourage you to use this as a beginning place or supplement to an overall [comprehensive] professional development plan for advancing your technological literacy.

The WWW Boot Camp video tutorials are step-by-step lessons that will assist you in navigating the web using browsers such as Microsoft™ Internet Explorer and a search engine such as Google.com™. 

There are over 30 videos so make certain to scroll down the menu to see all of them.
