This week, I share details of two new additions to the K-12 Cyber Incident Map and ponder the trend of tech-savvy teachers increasingly resembling NASCAR drivers.

Over the last 20 years, I’ve learned a few things about how the press covers technology in education (the good, the bad, and the ugly).

Please take a look and let me know what you think.
