Joel Woodward's curator insight, March 28, 2014 3:18 AM

Transparency of data collection and ongoing internet surveillance is an important aspect to the future of the Internet. In recent times, leaks of personal information that weren't secured enough by corporations, has lead to a loss of trust by users. Stressed by the consumers, the average user. As the internet has become a platform for awareness of ideas, products, services and so on, to maintain a healthy user experience, privacy will be key.

Technology In Education Can Only Do One Thing - TeachThought | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it
"Technology is such an incredible force that Luddite cries of caution are a waste of time. Technology isn’t going anywhere, but instead builds on itself endlessly with or without our consent. Rather, this is a simple reminder that the future of learning is the future of what it means to be human."

How to use AirDrop - iOS 7’s most important new feature for teachers - teachingwithipad.org

How to use AirDrop - iOS 7’s most important new feature for teachers - teachingwithipad.org | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it
"When Apple announced Airdrop this past June, I knew it would be a great feature for teachers with iPads. A common complaint about iPads in the classroom was that it wasn’t necessarily easy to transfer student work in the Camera Roll to the teacher. With no USB connection and no SD card slot, how was a teachersupposed to collect student work? Email would work for small files, but videos were much too large to send. Dropbox could be a solution, but that would require students to set up their own accounts, problematic if they are under a certain age. Enter AirDrop, a seamless and very quick way to transfer files via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connections between “nearby” devices."

How a Radical New Teaching Method Could Unleash a Generation of Geniuses | Wired Business | Wired.com | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it
José Urbina López Primary School sits next to a dump just across the US border in Mexico. The school serves residents of Matamoros, a dusty, sunbaked city of 489,000 that is a flash point in the war on drugs. There are regular shoot-outs, and it’s not uncommon for locals to find bodies scattered in the street in the morning. To get to the school, students walk along a white dirt road that parallels a fetid canal. On a recent morning there was a 1940s-era tractor, a decaying boat in a ditch, and a herd of goats nibbling gray strands of grass. A cinder-block barrier separates the school from a wasteland—the far end of which is a mound of trash that grew so big, it was finally closed down. On most days, a rotten smell drifts through the cement-walled classrooms. Some people here call the school un lugar de castigo—“a place of punishment.”
