One of the top stories in the nation today is the shooting in the library at the University of Texas. NPR is following the essential details, but it’s a clip of tape in the 10 a.m. news on NPR that caught my attention. It was from a student who also works for the public radio station there.
Students heard about the lockdown on their smart phones, monitored the news and kept parents informed via their laptops, and used Facebook to check on the safety of their friends.
In Texas today, no one’s complaining that college students are unable to disconnect from technology.
