Pop-Up Ads and Pornography

Earlier this week I received an email from an administrator telling me I needed to check on my latest 2 wikis because they had ads recently show up. The ads weren't bad overall except...for some wild and crazy girl videos. Yes, not something I want to have on my educational sites. I quickly contacted wikispaces and the ads were taken off.

However, when I logged onto msn last night, here was an article about a substitute teacher that is being sued, possibly ending with 40 years in prison! all because pop-up's appeared on the classroom computer she was logged into. Yikes! This was certainly a strong reminder to take technology seriously and not to get too "comfortable" with what kids are viewing.
