J. Mark Schwanz's insight:

Schools simply must give thoughtful consideration for a more common-sense approach to Internet use for students and adults. "It was never the intention of these laws to require schools to ban teachers and students from accessing the Internet for the purpose of learning."  Follow @tomwhitby for more.

Posting a Child’s Life For the World to See is a Privacy Issue | Ethics in Tech | Scoop.it
As fun as it is to share all of our kids' funny stories and embarrassing mishaps, we need to think of their right to privacy and not just our right to share.

Now is the time for more public (and private) discussion about how much is enough when it comes to sharing the private lives of our loved ones. I do believe children have rights and should not be exploited by their parents or older family members.

With Digital Literacy Comes Digital Ethics

With Digital Literacy Comes Digital Ethics | Ethics in Tech | Scoop.it
“ Our world today is driven by digital technologies. From cell phones to tablets, to electronic readers, and computers, almost all our work and the majority of our entertainment is delivered, shared, and enjoyed digitally. We communicate via emails and texts, and many households no longer even have”
Via Elizabeth E Charles, Sarantis Chelmis, Ivon Prefontaine

Excellent summary connecting literacy with ethics. It helps me realize that those students who don't have digital access don't have the ability to develop ethics. This is another aspect to the digital divide.

Being In The Moment

Being In The Moment | Ethics in Tech | Scoop.it

Via Mary Perfitt-Nelson, Ivon Prefontaine
J. Mark Schwanz's insight:

What is needed today? More digital social apps? A push away from so much "virtual connectedness" and "social media" to a more authentic connectedness and life-giving relatedness to others is due. Being in the present moment is a beginning. This video helps clarify what is really going on today.

more...
Mary Perfitt-Nelson's curator insight, January 6, 2:37 PM

The phone.  It feels like a lifeline for so many- I am totally guilty.  Still, there is a moderate place that involves some essential questions:  When?  Why?  Why Not?  

 

To me, it can be a useful tool that helps us learn and connect.  It can, though, interfere with relationships.  It can interfere with the degree with which you experience situations.  The video explains this well.

 

Why not?  Don't pick it up if you are sitting with people interacting. Don't pick it up until you have soaked in the experience.  Capture that, if you must, and put it down until later.  Embedding pockets of time for reflection WITH the photos you have captured is "When".  Capturing the moments, reflecting and sharing with others to stay connected is "why".

Being present is important. Putting phones aside and having a conversation with the person we are with is essential and life-giving.

Read through and click to the YouTube video @gcouros references called "A Sincere Compliment." Most of us will have to rate our schools a "1" and that is not a compliment. I agree we should reframe "digital citizenship" as "digital leadership" (see http://georgecouros.ca/blog/archives/3584).

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 2, 9:08 AM

This has been my argument all along, but I was told to be quiet. The way stories are told is about who is allowed to speak. Students need adults to help. Talk is not enough and being an 'expert' is not the answer. We need more than the most distant voices speaking on this issue. We need classroom teachers telling their stories and being heralded. I left education because my views were often seen as contrary. Now, I read this and find out my concerns were legitimate.

How to Block Access to Adult Content & Websites on iPhone & iPad

How to Block Access to Adult Content & Websites on iPhone & iPad | Ethics in Tech | Scoop.it

"Apple has long included various means of placing parental controls and filtering for content available on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, but up until recent iOS updates there was not a simple method of blocking web-based adult content and material in Safari. That has changed with iOS 7, which makes it extremely easy to prevent access to adult themed web sites and general content that is deemed inappropriate for youth. The web restrictions are very easy to toggle on and off and access to them is password restricted, which makes it perfect to quickly turn on before handing an iOS device off to a youngin’ for unsupervised use."
