Why your child’s digital footprints in school matter

Why your child’s digital footprints in school matter | FootprintDigital | Scoop.it

"Vast amounts of personal, behavioural and academic data about children are being collected, processed and used by schools, local authorities, and the government every year. But a recent review by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) in the UK of 50 websites and apps used by children found that only a third had “effective controls in place to limit the collection of personal information from children”. There is a real risk to children that their activities online may be monitored and their personal and behavioural traits the subject of profiling by third parties."

How every school can promote safety in a digital world

How every school can promote safety in a digital world | FootprintDigital | Scoop.it

"Technology has become a mainstay within the walls of today’s schools. One-to-one computing is enhancing and enriching the student experience, transforming the way we teach and the way we learn.

 

K-12 schools were expected to spend approximately $4.7 billion on technology this past year, according to IDC, with no sign of a plateau. But as rapid technology adoption continues unabated, the safety of the students who are meant to benefit from these advances is frequently overlooked."

Laura Montenegro's curator insight, October 13, 2016 9:23 PM
Inside the classroom, it is important to understand that a lot of varities can affect positively or negatively the learning environment such as emotions, understanding, methods of tteaching, etc. But in my opinion the most important aspect affecting is students feeling towards learning, because is almost the same as motivation, whenever you are motivated you work hard and enjoy what you are doing. On the contrary, being victime of bullying can be of extreme care. As mentioned in the article a happy student will be next a productive one, because they are enriching their learning process without fears or weird emotions. For that reason, it is important that as educators try for the first time to create a enjoyful environment in which they can feel save and work together in order to create and cosntruct the knowlegde in group.

What are your digital rights? | Why do digital rights matter? | Privacy | Cyberespionage | FootprintDigital | Scoop.it
Why do digital rights matter?

As we increasingly conduct our lives online – shopping, socializing and sharing information – our digital rights, particularly the rights to privacy and freedom of expression, are becoming more important. We need to understand how our data is being used by companies, governments and internet giants such as Facebook and Google. Is it being handled fairly and scrupulously, or sold or shared without our consent?

Revelations about surveillance programmes and digital hacking have sparked political and diplomatic wrangles. National Security Agency (NSA) whistleblower Edward Snowden has called for new international laws to protect data privacy, arguing that now we know about mass data surveillance it is time to “assert our traditional and digital rights so that we can protect them”.
