New web data powers plan for police

New web data powers plan for police | Digital Literacies information sources | Scoop.it
A law forcing communications firms to keep details that could help identify criminals using the internet is being planned by the home secretary.
Fiona Harvey's insight:

But are they digitally able to identify what the data they gather means?  We've already seen examples of how data is misinterpreted and those analysing this data may still be drawing conclusions based on 'old world' methodologies.

If you have 48 minutes then sit back and watch this very interesting seminar.  They cover 101 of Badges, who has them, why, and there's a slide with a set of resources around Badges.  They also do Q&A where some of the questions that have come up in my institution get answered.  Worth it.

Does sharing photos of your children on Facebook put them at risk?

Does sharing photos of your children on Facebook put them at risk? | Digital Literacies information sources | Scoop.it
Children’s right to privacy from exposure on social media can often be undermined by their parents
Fiona Harvey's insight:

Interesting perspective on privacy for our children.  I read a similar article about how children have unwittingly  had their rights compromised as their life has been catalogued online before they are born from scans to each stage of their life.  When they are 18 will they have wanted that much information posted about them - and who knows what that will mean in 20 years time?  Will we have compromised their rights again, but allowing their images to be published will that form a database of images that provide intelligence to agencies who can identify them without their knowledge.

Fiona Harvey's insight:

If you are interested in creating and using Digital Badges for your students this would be a good place to start (specifically focused on UK but can be adapted) The whole site is useful, has links to others.  I was looking for information about Employers and what they thought about Digital Badges.  It's a no brainer to me as I am using online tools all the time, UK HEIs should be jumping all over this.
