Protecting your child's digital identity | Digital CitizenShip | eSkills

Protecting your child's digital identity | Digital CitizenShip | eSkills | Exploring Digital Citizenship | Scoop.it
Child identity theft is considered to be one of the fastest-growing crimes. Kids’ identities are stolen over 50 times more than those of adults! We’re often so focused protecting our kids from so many threats in the real world; we forget that in cyberspace bad guys are stealing children’s identities to open credit cards, apply for loans, rent homes and even receive health care. Bad guys make money by selling and reselling the same child’s identity over and over. And they get away with it because parents don’t think about monitoring their son or daughter’s identity.

Why is this important? Children could potentially lose out on future jobs, internships and loans that require a clean background check or credit report—all because they were victims of identity theft as kids. That’s a future I’m trying to help my daughters avoid. Growing up in the real world is difficult enough that I don’t want their digital lives to hold them back.

An important read for everyone who has kids - in the classroom or at home! 

Steven Stich's curator insight, December 9, 8:40 PM

Did you know that children's identity is stolen over 50 times more than adults? I had no idea until reading this article. People who steal children's identity use their information to open credit cards, apply for loans, and this can affect kids ability to gain jobs in the future as a result. One day these children will be the future of America so it is vital that actions are taken by parents to ensure that their children are being safe online, and that no one is taking advantage of them.

G+ is catching up big time for many reasons.  Among these reasons is the Hangout integration.  

 

We just facilitated a remote 1.5 day leadership development session with Hangouts and it was fantastic.  

 

Google is sticking to their strategy and their value is starting to win people over.  I was never a fan and, through valuable features, I am changing my perspective on the suite of offerings.

 

This is a relevant infographic.

What is the difference between public and protected Tweets?

 

When you sign up for Twitter, you have the option to keep your Tweets public (the default account setting) or to protect your Tweets. Accounts with protected Tweets require manual approval of each and every person who may view that account's Tweets.

Facebook's Graph Search worries security experts

Facebook's Graph Search worries security experts | Exploring Digital Citizenship | Scoop.it
Post highlighting embarrassing things raises questions of user privacy with Graph Search, which Facebook users cannot opt out of

 

Facebook believes its responsibility is to provide the privacy settings, while users are responsible for using them. "You control who you share your interests and likes with on Facebook," the company said Thursday in an emailed statement.

 

When joining Facebook, people trade their personal information for free use of the social network. Given that, security experts agree that people are responsible for controlling who sees that information.

 

However, some experts believe Facebook does not go far enough in educating users about the potential threats in keeping information public. Because Graph Search makes all that personal information easily searchable, education on its dangers should be a much higher priority for Facebook.

 

===> "Some people do not grasp the importance of Graph Search," said Bogdon Botezatu, a senior e-threat analyst for Bitdefender. "So maybe it would be better for Facebook to actually inform people that some things will change." <===

What is Naivety in the Digital Age?

What is Naivety in the Digital Age? | Exploring Digital Citizenship | Scoop.it

[Start Text from Wikipedia]

Naivety (or naïvety, naïveté, etc.), is the state of being naive—having or showing a lack of experience, understanding or sophistication, often in a context where one neglects pragmatism in favor of moral idealism. One who is naive may be called a naif. [End Text from Wikipedia]

 

=============================================

 

Gust MEES

 

Naivety in the Digital Age means not realizing and accepting the dangers of Internet, the ignorance of the need to secure its computer and any other device connecting to the Internet (smartphones + ...), having no clue about Cyber-Security and people who think that Internet-Safety ALONE is enough!

 

===> Naif means ALSO thinking that a certain Operating System is secure and perfect! Nobody is perfect: <===

 

- Apple: http://www.scoop.it/t/apple-mac-ios4-ipad-iphone-and-in-security

 

- Linux: http://www.scoop.it/t/securite-pc-et-internet?q=Linux

 

- Windows: everybody knows that already...

 

 

In 21st Century Internet-Safety ALONE isn't enough anymore, a need for sure, but there is a MUST to teach and to learn ALSO about basics of Cyber-Security! Both together are a MUST! NOT ONLY one alone!

 

Would YOU like to get called a naif because not having those skills?

Sharla Shults's curator insight, April 19, 2013 3:16 PM

Bullying can affect everyone—those who are bullied, those who bully, and those who witness bullying and is linked to many negative outcomes. Take children's complaints of bullying seriously, whether at school, on the playground, in the park, on the Internet. Probing a seemingly minor complaint may uncover more severe grievances. Children are often afraid or ashamed to tell anyone that they have been bullied, so listen to their complaints!

We can come up with hundreds of ways to raise awareness on cyberbullying, but how do we actually know that people are getting the message? The best way is to give students, teachers and parents the most knowledge on cyberbullying, so that we can take the topic more seriously. The Big March is a virtual  protest against cyberbullying that contains:

     

     - An EU conference

     - An awareness raising video in 10 different languages

     - A virtual Big March against cyberbullying

     - A free app available in Google Play store

 

The project contains a video that shows what the Big March is all about. A group of students who are left with bruises, scars and tears, all walking in one direction while dressed in their school uniforms. The video shows unity, courage and strength from the ones effected by bullying.

PRIVACY AND ICT The whys and wherefores of privacy

Privacy is a sensitive subject to which people attach great importance. The only problem is that they do not know exactly why. Still, if it is so important then it is also necessary to establish why that is the case. It is therefore the task of ethicists to clarify the relevant theoretical arguments and practical implications.

Any topics that touch on privacy, such as the electronic files on patients (efp) and cameras in public spaces therefore soon become topics of heated social and political debate. People appreciate the advantages of new information technology but are at the same time alarmed to realize that so much is known about them. It is often emotions that play a decisive role because the relevant arguments are difficult to formulate not to mention weigh up.
