Your dose of anti-alarmism, from Florida teacher David Cutler, writing in The Atlantic:

Last year, I discussed former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner’s sexting scandal with seniors in my United States Government course.

My goal isn’t to scare students away from using social media, which can be an extremely useful tool. I just want them to use it wisely. As a teacher, I believe it’s my job to teach my students about digital literacy and citizenship, equipping them with the tools to navigate an increasingly open digital world. This means making students aware of potential pitfalls and helping them to make good choices with current and emerging communication platforms.
