presentation reflection

Going through the process of putting my own presentation together made me realize multiple things.  Firstly, that my topic was still incredibly too broad.  Other students had topics similar to mine, and that made me realize that I needed to narrow my research into a more specific topic.  I went from a broad take on the relationship between technology and society to a more focused look at the role that computers play on the youth in public schools in the United States.  After giving my presentation, the questions helped me realize that I needed to pick some criteria.  I need to figure out exactly how I’m going to measure internet and computer usage in elementary schools as a failure or success.  Also, I need to make sure to stay on topic with one type of technology (internet), instead of straying into other things such as smart-boards or podcasts.
