United Nations summit: A climate change video every world leader should see. | FootprintDigital | Scoop.it
Words matter. Especially when it comes to climate change, a problem that sometimes feels so woefully abstract and overwhelming it’s easy to lose track of the urgency. There’s no denying that moving forward, society faces a choice: Keep on with business as usual and risk unimaginable catastrophe, or make a...

Digital Student Further Education Report - Sept 2015

Colleges need to engage staff, learners and employers in
a constructive dialogue to define expectations of technology
use. We recommend using a range of methods to involve
them and encourage a variety of voices to be heard. In
particular, facilitate closer working with employers – they
can help determine expenditure, use of technology and
assessment. The aim is to ensure that learners’ technology
use is going to prepare them for employment and
enhance their lifelong employability.

"Well, the point to key challenges is obviously positive (participation, engagement) but the report is in the 'hype' of current general discourses: engage learners (all? how?) in innovative ways (what do you mean by 'innovation'? technology means innovation?)" A good start... to discuss!

Global Digital Citizenship—in 15 minutes! (Solution Fluency)

Global Digital Citizenship—in 15 minutes! (Solution Fluency) | FootprintDigital | Scoop.it
By focusing on Global Digital Citizenship every day for 15 minutes, you can instil in your students a strong basis for Internet-savvy skills for the 21st Century. This is the first in a series of templates for lesson plans on the 21st Century Fluencies. First up: Solution Fluency.

You heard that right, we said 15 minutes—take this lesson in parts; one part each day. You can spread this out over a couple weeks time or however you wish.

The premise for our 15 minutes comes in the form of flipped videos or material that students will examine at home, or at the very least to be highlighted and watched in class for 15 minutes or less.

So it all begins with your PBL plan. We here at the Global Digital Citizen Foundation believe that PBL is one of the best ways to get students engaged in their own learning. PBL is the name—Solution Fluency is the game.

This vigilante virus protects you against malware attacks, quotes Richard Stallman

This vigilante virus protects you against malware attacks, quotes Richard Stallman | FootprintDigital | Scoop.it
Symantec has discovered malware that infects routers and Internet of Things devices, then cleans out any existing malware and locks the devices down against future attacks.


Symantec first became aware of the superhero malware—dubbed Linux.Wifatch—in 2014, when an independent researcher noticed weirdness occurring on his router. As it turns out, the router had been transformed into a zombie, thrall to a large, sophisticated peer-to-peer botnet. He reported via Twitter that he had identified over 13,000 other devices infected with it.


That prompted other researchers to chime in that they too had identified it, variously nicknaming it Reincarna and Zollard — which was spotted in Internet-connected devices as far back as 2013.
