Here are a couple of excerpts from a 90-minute programme shown on PBS on February 2nd as part of their Frontline documentary strand.

The clips here obviously relate mainly to the uses of technology in education. Other highlights of the programme are seeing a lecture at MIT in full swing with almost every student paying more attention to their laptops than their lecturer, and chilling insights into the uses the U.S. Military is making of the technologies.

A very, very good documentary, asking some very hard questions and not necessarily having any pat answers. I would recommend watching the whole thing.
