Digital Citizenship: Metadata Made Simple

Digital Citizenship: Metadata Made Simple | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it

"Talking to our learners about digital citizenship requires us continually to revise and update our messages. We tell our students constantly that we are not cops here at school to block their access online, but rather we are here to educate them about using it."

Teaching digital citizenship is not as simple as we think. This year with information being released about the NSA and their actions a new layer was added.

Several weeks ago The Guardian released a short video, The NSA and Surveillance Made Simple, that helps to explain what it means when metadata is collected (and explains what the metadata is) and how this may impact privacy.

Infographic: 13% of social media users are identity theft victims

Infographic: 13% of social media users are identity theft victims | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it

The tension between the monetization of social networks and people’s desire for privacy is something that doesn’t show any signs of resolving. The most valuable thing that social networks have is your information, and this infographic does a good job of vetting out where your information is and how vulnerable we all are because of it.

Identity theft!

Randy Hilarski's curator insight, September 24, 2013 1:59 PM

Be careful what you post on social media. Public means public people!

Iron Dane Richards's comment, September 26, 2013 10:12 AM
Its a shame that we have so much internet identity theft in this digital age. One solution I highly recommend to many of our clients is the use of prepaid debit cards in order to minimize potential loss with like a Walmart, Netspend or Bancorp Prepaid Visa or Mastercard for online purchases and link that even further through a paypal debit card. Our website has links to business cards also http://ironsolutionsgroup.com/business-credit-cards/

9 Tips For Keeping Your Internet Use Private

9 Tips For Keeping Your Internet Use Private | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it

Many people are concerned about online privacy. And, conversely, many more are not, freely sharing any and everything on their favorite social networks, paying little attention to their mobile app settings, and happily letting Google track each keyword that they search.

It’s easy to get paranoid about all this stuff, but it does pay to be a little careful when using the internet, particularly when it comes to your personal safety. And while Twitter holds pride of place as one of the safest social networks, by taking the time to educate yourself on the security and privacy settings within your profile, being mindful of which third-party apps you allow access to your account and ensuring that you aren’t making it easy for burglars by constantly telling the world when you’re not at home, you can rest assured that you’re doing everything you can to keep your presence safe on Twitter.

 

This infographic proposes 9 tips for keeping your internet usage private.

How to Disappear from the Internet [INFOGRAPHIC]

How to Disappear from the Internet [INFOGRAPHIC] | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it

The amount of information available online has gotten out of hand. Everything about our lives, from where where we went to high school and what we ate for breakfast this morning, can be found on the internet. If you think that's bad, think about children growing up today – their entire lives, from infancy through middle school, are being documented by their parents on Facebook!

Privacy just doesn't exist online anymore; it can take drastic measures to delete ourselves from the internet, but here's a step-by-step guide for those who want to do so...

Projects In Web 3.0: Privacy Is The New Predator

Projects In Web 3.0: Privacy Is The New Predator | hobbitlibrarianscoops | 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.
