The 7 Transformational Concepts in The 21st Century Education ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it

Sharrock's insight:

There are shifts in the ways we approach work and education that make their ways into our lives. We might focus on one or two of these concepts in our own lives, but miss that these concepts are involved in new ways of working and learning. Change occurs in small, incremental ways then suddenly, all at once.

Sharrock's insight:

It's amazing that college students don't recognize that that their profiles are searched just as they search the profiles of others. I wonder if it is a case that they find others more interesting than themselves, that no one would be interested enough. Or is it that anonymity effect of the Internet, that people can't face people so believe they are invisible.

Internet Privacy and Social Networking Study

Internet Privacy and Social Networking Study | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it
Results of the Study

Not surprisingly, the AdLab found that communicating through social networking websites was second-nature to the study participants. However, while student were aware that the sites are inherently public, they were unaware of how public the information on these sites is and how that information can be used against them.

 

Through case studies and questionnaires, the researchers examined the students' use patterns and assessed their awareness of privacy and ethics online. The results reflect that while students regularly use the Internet in general, and social networking sites in particular, to find information about others online, many study participants had a "blind spot" in not fully realizing that the same type of a search could be performed about them.

 

The students in the study recognized that a person must take responsibility for his or her online profile, but insisted that it was wrong to judge that person by what he or she chose to post online.

 

In general, the study participants were only vaguely aware that people other than peers and classmates might be looking at their profiles. Instead, the students somewhat naïvely expected a degree of personal and professional separation online even if potential hiring managers, internship coordinators, or athletic coaches were viewing the materials online. In reality, the delineation between a person's "virtual" and "real" life appears to exist only for the college-aged participants. They appeared uncomfortable with the notion that few others make a similar distinction.

Sharrock's insight:

This is a resource that can help inform and support educators who are facilitating learning of privacy, Internet, and social networking safety.
