Projects In Web 3.0: Privacy Is The New Predator

Projects In Web 3.0: Privacy Is The New Predator | Engaging Parents | Scoop.it

"Student digital privacy is a critical currency, to be safeguarded by schools and pillaged by predators. Interactive, social Web 3.0 resources demand proactive ways to access tech tools and still preserve learners’ anonymity.
In the changing edtech landscape, student safety is taking on new dimensions and new gravity. When every online resource now is interactive and linked to social media, Web 3.0 often requires clever ways to give students access to the learning tools they need and still preserve their innocence."

How do we teach students the concept of privacy? How do we help them understand this concept when so much of their lives are online and open to all?

This post discusses how "privacy is the new predator", providing many resources to help you work with your students.

Have you heard about Facehawk? It is an interactive video that takes information from your Facebook account and creates a hawk that uses "photos and statuses from since your digital life began."

On one hand we tell students that they need to keep their private information private, yet websites ask them to upload their picture. To assist with this issue there is a list of websites that allow students to create avatars.

Additional resources focus on Digital Citizenship and Modern Internet Safety, Web 3.0, and New Media Literacy.

This infographic provides 21 digital tools that help build vocabulary. It is split into the following sections:

* Reference Tools

* Word Clouds
* Games and Reviews

* Word Walls and More

Why use digital tools?  Here are a few reasons (and there are many more). They allow students to hear spoken words; often words are acccompanied with images, providing a deeper understanding; students may play and manipulate words; and create virtual word walls. We are told to personalize instruction today and digital tools help us do that. Teaching vocabulary is critical and these tools will provide you with resources for a range of students. For more information on the tools you might look at the original post located at http://www.learningunlimitedllc.com/2013/02/20-digital-tools-for-vocabulary/

This is really great.  It is very helpful for students, particularly those whose first language is not English and are learning subjects in the UK.

If only customers behave like students....

Deanna Dahlsad's curator insight, November 27, 2013 5:57 PM

This is an interesting way to look at and evaluate your child's engaement with school as well as your parenting. Are you encouraging "ritual compliance" or real engagement? And, for those of with kids with special needs, the behavior labels in the green boxes might be more helpful in terms of both describing what we see as well as considering in motivating our childen.

Ryan McDonough's curator insight, July 7, 2014 8:19 AM

Self explanatory visual on the benefits of gaming as a means of learning. Outlined are the rewards, mastery, engagement, intensity, exercise, readiness, and competitiveness. These types of graphics need to be displayed in the classroom. There's always parents who are unsure of how gaming qualifies as teaching. Can't they just sit their kid in front of an iPad all day at home? Well, in the appropriate setting, with the right direction and guidance, games are certainly good for learning. Some people just don't know that from experience yet.

This is so important. It isn't just important for mothers to read aloud. It is very important that fathers take a turn too.
