Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:

Many of today's young children are overbooked. Sadly some have little access to these resources or initiatives.

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

Protecting your child's digital identity | Digital CitizenShip | eSkills | digital divide information | 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, 2014 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.

How Technology Has Transformed the Classroom (Infographic)

How Technology Has Transformed the Classroom (Infographic) | digital divide information | Scoop.it

"Parents are famous for their ability to reminisce about days gone by. It always starts the same way, “Back when I was your age, we used to walk 10 miles to school barefoot—in the snow.” Or, “I remember when school lunch cost a nickel.”

Thanks to the integration of technology, schools, and classrooms in particular, have changed so dramatically in recent years that some parents might not even recognize them. It’s a classic case of old school versus new school."

This infographic looks at how the integration of technology into schools has made major changes. Learn how many parents used software in school compared to their teenage students; how collaboration has changed; if technology is important to student success (parents view) and much more. If you have an upcoming Open House this might be an infographic that would elicit comments from parents.
