What Parents Need To Know About Internet Safety

Safety on the Internet may not be something parents think about until either disaster happens to their child or they hear about something happening to some other family.Cyberbullying is part of the equation but not all of it. This happens on some social sites when others decide to bully children but can also occur in the form of IM, or instant messages, or other forms. Unlike face to face bullying, this kind of abuse can be replicated and spread over a much wider audience than ever before. Instead of one or two people witnessing a childs humiliation, an entire community can see it. Parents may not know enough about how to remedy the situation let alone prevent it.

Accused pirate left a thoroughly 21st-century trail | Digital Citizenship in Schools | Scoop.it

When police released Madeleine Pulver from her 10-hour ordeal on August 3, locked to a device she believed to be a bomb, all they had were her description of a masked man, an email address and a USB stick. But in the modern technological world, these are powerful clues. Digital fingerprints are indelible, more revealing than any physical residue.

Digital divide – what can go wrong!

Digital divide – what can go wrong! | Digital Citizenship in Schools | Scoop.it

The more I work with educators, the more I worry about the learning opportunities we are creating for our students. Of course, I am generalising here, but nevertheless, I remain perplexed by the idea that teachers feel they are too “time poor” to learn something new each day. Yet  teachers expect their students to ‘go forth’ and find new information, learn new ways of approaching a topic, write another essay, fill another wiki, write another blog post, make another movie, sit another exam…..you know, it’s endless. So students should stick at it…but not teachers?
