Protecting children and teens online, June is Internet Safety Month

Protecting children and teens online, June is Internet Safety Month | eLearningTidbit | Scoop.it
June is National Internet Safety Month. But who is making sure our children are safe online?

 

Five million social media users are under the age of 10 years old, and 51% have given out personal information online to strangers. Out of all teenagers, 95% have been online and 80% use social media, where peer pressure can prompt them to post personal information and photos to strangers when they update their status online.

 

===> Only 10% of these teens ever talk with a parent about the internet!!! <===

Why parents should educate their kids about tech

Why parents should educate their kids about tech | eLearningTidbit | Scoop.it

"For parents trying to raise kids and give them the technology to be successful, yet also protect them, there's a sense that no one's there to tell folks what steps to take," said Marian Merritt, Internet safety advocate at Symantec.

 

But laying the responsibility for teaching digital citizenship solely at families' feet would be a mistake, Warren said. "It also has to be a part of ongoing education," she added, noting that kids as young as 2 now commonly use smartphones and other technological devices.

 

"I hope schools are distributing information and educating (families), ===> but ultimately, parents have a huge role to play (in the process)." <===

Scholr.ly Search Engine Takes An Innovative Approach To Research | Edudemic

Scholr.ly Search Engine Takes An Innovative Approach To Research | Edudemic | eLearningTidbit | Scoop.it

That’s where Scholar.ly comes in. It’s expected to open in beta later this summer but we have a sneak preview already. Scholar.ly is being designed by and for researchers. It’s basically Google Scholar but a different format. The biggest difference from a standard Google-based search is that Scholr.ly’s results are instantly sorted into two columns: publications and authors. The publications page shows titles, authors and other meta information, as well as excerpts that are easy to skim. The right-side column shows authors. Each author can have a profile that includes career information, affiliations, publication listings, common co-authors, top publishing venues, and impact metrics.
