SNL MySpace Skit

As I was cleaning out my email, I came across a fun resource for teaching Internet safety. It's a Saturday Night Live skit with Andy Samberg and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. In the skit, Andy is teaching a class on how to use MySpace. The students include Julia and several Internet predators, who ask a variety of questions that illustrate that people may not be who they say they are online. It's probably best for middle school or high school students. Definitely worth checking out!

(I found the clip below at Hulu. They like to put ads in front of their videos, but the resolution is better than I've found at other sources...)

One of my friends once shared with me a photo slideshow she had created. She had spent hours putting it together through Windows MovieMaker and was thrilled about the final effect-the transitions, the music and the overall look of it. I only wish she had come to me before she started this project!

I've been preparing a series of blog posts inspired by the ISTE conference I recently attended in Denver. However, I just learned of a fantastic site that I just can't wait to share!
