Written by young people, parents and experts in firewalls, networking and wireless systems, as well as advanced Mac and Firefox users. This is a fresh approach to the topic of esafety, digital citizenship and is for anyone who uses the "Net every day and want to know how to secure their systems, preserve their Net lifestyles, and protect their data"

Tina Jameson's curator insight, September 5, 2013 9:59 PM
Any resource which promotes awareness of the need to be 'cyber space saavy' is worth sharing. I found this link would not open directly on the iPad. Works fine on PC.
Trevor Sokolowski's curator insight, May 12, 2015 7:13 PM

It is our job to teach our youth at a young age the dangers of the internet. Giving your kids your credit cards to use freely on the internet is very stupid and could lead to their future and your future savings being wasted.

AWESOME + a tip from Linda:

" Definite share with teachers for finding primary source documents.  Also, don't forget the Google LIFE magazine images. 

 

"Search tip

Add "source:life" to any Google image search and search only the LIFE photo archive. For example: computer source:life "

MAKING YOUR MEDICAL STUDENTS AND HUMAN RESSOURCES MORE MOTIVATED!

If they don't where they're going to, let's them know at least where they come from!

Let you teach your students the universal history of the hospital and the medical school like I'm proposing it from Hippocrates of Cos to now.

Our university hospitals originated from Nestorians and Syriaq bimaristans! If you're interested in and you don't know how to do it, let you be free to invite me as a visiting lecturer. I'll do that for the best of your students. You just have to pay my C-airplane ticket and a 3-night-stay in a good hotel. Since Gl. Patton's army delivered my village on 4 August 1944 from Rommel's one, I don't request honoraria. This is a gift to the US people.
Prof. Dr. JF Moreau, MD, of Paris, France, is Honorary Fellow of the American Collège of Radiology. I was Visiting Professor twice at UCSD, once at the Downstate Medical Center of Brooklyn NY, and at the Arizona Health Center, Tucson, AZ. I lectured many times in plentiful main universities in the whole USA and Canada from 1979. I speak English and Spanish fluently.

It’s hard to believe that today marks the first official day of my 25th year in education—not counting all of the years I was the student! That said, I don’t know about you, but after experiencing this many new beginnings, I’m always looking for a new twist to add to those age-old obligatory back to school activities—like discussing classroom rules.

 

That’s why I love the infographic shown below—which highlights the how and why teachers should allow students to actively participate in establishing expectations.
