Using Wi-Fi hotspots they set up, hackers can obtain your passwords and gain access to your sensitive information. Here’s how it works what you can do to prevent it.
Check this out .
I have said for a long time that WiFi Hotspots are not a secure place to do anything online that you would not want exposed to the general public. This being online banking, online shopping, viewing your corporate email account, etc. being just a few.
With free online tools available on the Internet, it has become very easy for an attacker to view the information that you are entering into your computer from a free Wifi hotspot. These WiFi hotspots may be very handy, but not very secure.
The article above will show you a couple of ways that you can protect you and your computer if you travel frequently and use these hotspots. I want you to stay protected.
Stay safe out there!
Why we must nurture children's hearts as well as minds: 7 ways to teach kids strong, ethical behavior and character in a decade of moral erosion
I particularly like the part that concerns to train for positive assertion versus constant compliance. The compliance to please teachers versus the ownership of learning all to please parents often provides a conflict for me.
This is an important article. Some teachers find themselves in situations where they are teaching ethical behaviour to children. This is worth a read.

Infographics are interesting–a mash of (hopefully) easily-consumed visuals (so, symbols, shapes, and images) and added relevant character-based data (so, numbers, words, and brief sentences).
The learning application for them is clear, with many academic standards–including the Common Core standards–requiring teachers to use a variety of media forms, charts, and other data for both information reading as well as general fluency...

Las infografías son una herramienta muy útil por su factor visual: en poco espacio y de forma visulamente agradable y atrayente, engloba datos y relaciona conceptos.
Education 3.0 is a term that has been used to describe a level of transformative capabilities and practices for education in the 21st century.
Professor Derek Keats, of the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa, and his co-author Jan Philipp Schmidt, FreeCourseWare Manager at University of the Western Cape, South Africa, used the term in 2007 to apply to the use and impact on education of collaborative and personalized learning, reusable learning content, and recognition of prior learning (RPL) whether by formal or informal means.
Keats' explorations were focused on higher education. Dr. John Moravec at the University of Minnesota broadens this view, and describes Education 3.0 as a product necessary to support what he labels "Society 3.0" - a near future paradigm of social co-constructivism, ambient technology, and propelled by continuous innovation at all levels of society.
One possible imminent future...
The idea of web 2.0, and education 3.0 is interesting to me... what will they be called in the future if they are to become the norm?
This ia a neat checklist to assess whether the project you set is worth the effort.

How-to’s and link roundups on teaching with Twitter has been done many times before, but the topic is worth frequent revisiting and refreshing, especially in the context of the #FutureEd initiative and the Pedagogy Project by HASTAC Scholars.
The goal of this review is to help think through if, why, and how to use Twitter in our teaching and learning – especially for those who remain skeptical.
Very nice sharing. Thanks
I really like this article because it is very effective at weighing the pros and cons of using twitter in the classroom. Some of the supplemental links are also very helpful to look at and include content on how to teach with Twitter and how to avoid some of the pitfalls that can result from using Twitter in a classroom setting. In general, I believe strongly in helping students to develop global competency (as we have discussed in class) and I believe that Twitter is one of the best and most convenient mediums to do this. While I am slightly apprehensive about how and if it is even possible to use Twitter in an elementary school classroom I definitely see more potential in using it after reading this article.
twitter why and why not discussion with deep links for more.

Here’s a list of some ways to use Google Hangouts in the classroom.
Great stuff that every teacher should know about.
Teachers can start using Hangouts simply by setting up a Google+ page and signing up for the Hangout feature. They can conduct virtual classrooms at a number of places; it allows a teacher to teach up to 10 classrooms at the same time. It makes classes interactive and students can ask questions whenever they want. They can use it to connect their classroom with other classrooms or to connect their students with experts across the world, providing them with connected learning experiences. There are many ways in which teachers and students can derive benefits from using Hangouts in the classroom.
These are basically web tools that have been featured and reviewed by other edubloggers in different blogging platforms. Check out the list below and as always your feedback is more than welcome.
Links to some of these are already in here, but this is a unified list.
We'll reach a new state of web skills when we reinvent technology tools to better enhance our personal learning. We'll be at 3.0 when schools are everywhere and not viewed as daycare.

All of these sites focus on learning and curation, but could one of them really be the "Pinterest of education"?
As one of the fastest-growing social networks, Pinterest's popularity can be attributed to its ease of use and vibrant Pinboards. Recently, a number of similar social curation sites developed specifically for students and teachers have popped up, emulating Pinterest in key ways while focusing on learning. In some cases, they have even made improvements.
Here are five such sites that could be contenders for the title "Pinterest of Education"
I haven't been through all the sites yet, but feel like I just found a treasure trove!
