Here is but a sampling of inappropriate content that you will not be able to filter out of your school's Internet access, especially since funding for the very tools used to view them may be tied directly to insuring their presence.

Be aware, be careful, and explain the true meaning of these images and others like them, so children may learn to protect themselves. [see below]

 

       
              
 

              
 

 

                 
 

            

              
         
         
                     
           

           

 

An extended discussion describing the multiplicity of avenues that intersect interest in these images (and similar) is well beyond the scope of this web site. However an exercise for self realization is to draw a line connecting any two of these images and consider the connections.

Every teacher or parent who may exert influence over the use of the Internet in their school should begin by reading both of the following books. The first book anticipates the reasons for the bursting of the tech bubble (if not actually predicting it), while the second presents a plausible case that humans are merely a bump on the evolutionary road to machine species dominance. You will not find two more divergent views for comparison:

Stoll, Clifford. High-Tech Heretic : Why Computers Don't Belong in the Classroom and Other Reflections by a Computer Contrarian. 1st ed. New York: Doubleday, 1999.

Kurzweil, Ray. The Age of Spiritual Machines : When Computers Exceed Human Intelligence. New York: Viking, 1999.
