This is not the most substantive post I have ever written, but for readers who did not read the comments on my last post, Multitasking in the Classroom, please check them out. That post was yet another one on the use and misuse of computers in the classroom. I recommend the comments for your reading pleasure.
I particularly liked these reader comments because they are opinionated, well-presented and argued, and civil. In another recent post, I lamented the prevalence of incivility in the blogosphere. I hold these comments out as excellent examples of civil debate--namely, how being professional and polite does not mean being nonsubstantive.
