What’s the Impact of Overzealous Internet Filtering in Schools? | Ethics in Tech | Scoop.it
Over-filtering websites at schools misses the opportunity to teach students the critical skills they’ll need to discern the good from the bad.

Via Skip Zalneraitis
J. Mark Schwanz's insight:

We are missing opportunities to teach critical thinking and real-world problem solving when we over-filter school internet. How can our students learn to discern unless we give them learning experiences?

J. Mark Schwanz's insight:

I had never  thought that K12 internet filtering could have this kind of bias, but I guess it makes sense. In response to this, does your district have any language about bias in it's AUP and filtering policies?

J. Mark Schwanz's insight:
Where is your school on the CIPA challenge? Proactive or reactive? "We cannot let the monumental task of monitoring derail the legitimate need for our students to be active collaborators, creators, and communicators online. Whether it is by a software solution, or staff and parent supervision, the monitoring requirement of CIPA is achievable if we share the load."

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.

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.

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.
