Screening employees via social media accounts - EU guidance to employers

Screening employees via social media accounts - EU guidance to employers | Digital Footprint and Reputation Management | Scoop.it
EU's Data Protection Working Party guidance says employers should not be screening social media as a matter of course.
Llandrillo Library's insight:
The EU's Article 29 Working Party has published a guidance opinion document outlining how it thinks employers should review social media accounts belonging to employees or potential employees. The answer is – sparingly if at all. The document clarifies responsibilities under the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that will take effect in May 2018.

Has zombie education brought us to this?

Has zombie education brought us to this? | Digital Footprint and Reputation Management | Scoop.it
The old world turned on the axis of knowledge and material goods. The new one turns on the axis of creativity and social responsibility. To cross safely to the other side we’ll need a generation of thinkers and makers who can reframe problems and design surprising, elegant solutions. We’ll need fearless, self-directed learners who embrace adventure. We’ll need teachers, mentors, and leaders who understand that mind-shaping is world-shaping—who give learners the tools they’ll need to continually reinvent their minds in response to future challenges.

Interesting article. Bit too much focus on flipped learning for my taste, but some good points.

Bernard Rentier's curator insight, January 5, 1:46 AM

"We have been cannibalizing [our children's] future. School reformers have been doubling down on the factory model of education, insisting on standardized courses, standardized testing, and standardized views of human resources. They’re busy producing standardized graduates for jobs that may not exist in a few years, and that offer little in the way of satisfaction, joy, or fulfillment."

Blogger considers legal action over Garda caution at airport

Llandrillo Library's insight:
Using social channels for discussing and commenting on public figures - whether you feel your opinion is valid and justified - means you are publishing content into the public domain. You are bound by the legal rules of defamation and libel, but also it seems personal visits and warnings from the police in this case. It's a highly unusual situation and not one that seems to follow protocol. However should be a lesson that using a public platform online means it is potentially being read and monitored, regardless of how you regard free speech entitlements.

Students say that in order for high schools and colleges to better serve them, it is important to challenge the assumption that students are digital natives. This starts with educating professors about the technological diversity in their classrooms and providing students with workshops and engaging videos to help them learn without shame.
