Cyber Crime and Digital Evidence Policy

Cyber Crime and Digital Evidence Policy | 21st Century Graduate Literacies | Scoop.it
Cyber Crime and Digital Evidence Policy
Gino Fransman's insight:
16 Online Harassment 16.1 Online harassment is sometimes referred to as cyber bullying, cyber stalking or trolling. Because of greater access to the internet this crime is becoming more prevalent and can range from simple name calling to a sustained campaign of harassment including threats to kill and utilising numerous online fake profiles. 16.2 In Case law - R v Paul Chambers 2012 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twitter_Joke_Trial) it states that if a message is sent specifically to a company, group or individual it should be considered differently than to one sent to an open audience where no direct threat was sought or gained. 16.3 Twitter and other online communications are covered by Sec 127 of the Communications Act 2003. It prohibits messages or other matter sent by means of 'public electronic communications network' that are of a grossly offensive, indecent, obscene or menacing character. An offence is committed when a message is sent which is intended to create fear or apprehension to those it is sent to or who maybe reasonably expected to see it if the message contains menacing character. The court will decide whether the message was offensive or not. 16.4 Where an allegation of harassment is reported to Sussex Police the victim should be told to secure the evidence on either their phone or computer by logging the details of the sender along with the date time and content and where possible provide a screen print. The victim should not respond to the offender in anyway. 16.5 These crimes can be dealt with under varying legislation depending upon the offending messages.

Innovation Excellence | 30 Academic Resources on Learning – for Educators and Innovators

Innovation Excellence | 30 Academic Resources on Learning – for Educators and Innovators | 21st Century Graduate Literacies | Scoop.it
Many of us read blogs about learning and discuss the learning process with our colleagues, but few of us actually bother keeping up with the latest science. Maybe it’s because, if we do manage to identify a source or two, we are immediately turned off by all the dense scientific jargon. Or maybe it’s not always clear which resources provide information specifically on learning and not just education in general.

Learning In The Age Of Digital Distraction

Learning In The Age Of Digital Distraction | 21st Century Graduate Literacies | Scoop.it
There needs to be some positive acceptance that young people are going to use this technology. I don't think that just denying it is reasonable. I also don't think an extended period of removing technology is likely to be helpful. I think that it is reasonable to take technology "time outs," to have environments and maybe even times where the family interacts with each other and not the outside world through texts. It's sort of a return to the dinner table as a place where you learn how to engage in face-to-face, meaningful contact. Put your tech aside. You can return to it afterwards.

And I think to lead by example is critical because we now know that parents are as guilty as their kids in pulling out a phone during a dinner conversation and texting. I think that that is really critical just to say it has to be balanced and we're going to practice how to balance it as a family.

Introducing this work

Introducing this work | 21st Century Graduate Literacies | Scoop.it

For the purposes of this Scoop.it site, the history of human interaction with information may be divided into 4 eras. The first (spoken) era ended with the invention of writing around 3000-4000 BC. The second era ended with the invention of the printing press in 1440. The third era ended, and the fourth began, with the invention of the Internet (depending how one defines its operational beginning) somewhere between 1969 and 1982. We now exist early, but decidedly, in the fourth era.

 

All readers may not agree with this interpretation of the history of information, especially with the division and numbering of the eras. That is not the main point. Rather, it is that humankind is presently existing in an era distinctly different from the one that preceded it -- that in fact, this new era is accompanied with, and characterized by, a new - and quite different - information landscape. This new Internet information landscape will challenge, disrupt, and overpower the print-oriented one that came before it. It will not completely obliterate that which preceded it, but it will render it to a subsidiary, rather than primary, level of influence.

 

Just as the printing press altered humanity's relationship with information, thereby resulting in massive restructuring of political, religious, economic, social, educational, cultural, scientific, and other realms of life; so too will the advance of digital technology occasion analogous transformations in the corresponding universe of present and future human activity.

 

This site will concern itself primarily with how K-20 education in the US, and the people who comprise its constituencies, may be affected by this transformative movement from one era to the next. All ideas considered here appear, to me at least, to impact the learning enterprise in some way. Accordingly, this work looks at the present and the future through a lens that is predominantly, but far from entirely, a digital one. -JL
