Protecting your child's digital identity | Digital CitizenShip | eSkills

Protecting your child's digital identity | Digital CitizenShip | eSkills | Teaching Tools Today | Scoop.it
Child identity theft is considered to be one of the fastest-growing crimes. Kids’ identities are stolen over 50 times more than those of adults! We’re often so focused protecting our kids from so many threats in the real world; we forget that in cyberspace bad guys are stealing children’s identities to open credit cards, apply for loans, rent homes and even receive health care. Bad guys make money by selling and reselling the same child’s identity over and over. And they get away with it because parents don’t think about monitoring their son or daughter’s identity.

Why is this important? Children could potentially lose out on future jobs, internships and loans that require a clean background check or credit report—all because they were victims of identity theft as kids. That’s a future I’m trying to help my daughters avoid. Growing up in the real world is difficult enough that I don’t want their digital lives to hold them back.

An important read for everyone who has kids - in the classroom or at home! 

Steven Stich's curator insight, December 9, 2014 8:40 PM

Did you know that children's identity is stolen over 50 times more than adults? I had no idea until reading this article. People who steal children's identity use their information to open credit cards, apply for loans, and this can affect kids ability to gain jobs in the future as a result. One day these children will be the future of America so it is vital that actions are taken by parents to ensure that their children are being safe online, and that no one is taking advantage of them.

Digital CitizenShip: Social Media AND Privacy

Digital CitizenShip: Social Media AND Privacy | Teaching Tools Today | Scoop.it

Social Media is about sharing, right!? That’s WHAT it is mostly, BUT there are the HIDDEN commercial intents which MOST people don’t see (OUR Privacy is sold and OUR friends one too…) and there isALSO OUR responsibility about it WHEN WE share, WE will discuss in detail here…

First of ALL, there isn’t ANYTHING for FREE in this world, even the death costs the life and a lot of money for the funerals ;)

SO… Let us analyse WHY WE get Social Media and other services on the internet for “FREE“. BTW: there isn’t anything for FREE, WE pay with OUR information which the companies are gathering!

This is an interesting article. Teaching the skills of being a good digital citizen can be difficult, as many children have developed habits which can be hard to break. worth a read.

This is quite a balancing act and will require students to really understand Creative Commons and Copyright.

Equilibrio entre ciudadania digital y investigación

Kandy Woodfield's curator insight, January 23, 2014 4:49 PM

Sound advice here on how to build critical thinking skills into the curriculum from an early age to support the growth of the next generation of digital social scientists & citizen researchers. This is great but still leaves us with a problem about how to equip established social researchers with an understanding of the potential & challenges in social media research, especially those who serve on IRBs granting access and clearance via ethics panels to new research projects.

Roberto Ivan Ramirez's curator insight, December 8, 2014 3:36 PM

No sólo se debe enfocar en la cantidad de herramientas tecnológicas o recursos digitales que los docentes de determinado nivel educativo puedan implementar en su práctica pedagógica, sin antes se reflexiona la manera como las tecnologías pueden ser de utilidad para generar aprendizaje de manera individual o colaborativo, todo depende del tipo de estrategia o técnica a ser empleada, si se va a centrar en resolver problemas o desarrollar proyectos. Es parte de lo que propone el modelo TPACK, integración de diversos conocimientos que atiendan de manera transversal la realidad cotidiana de los alumnos, de la sociedad y del mundo.

Sue Gaardboe's curator insight, August 10, 2014 5:46 AM

This made me think about not just how we as teachers feel about technology use in schools, but also, how do our students feel about it? We know many of them know more about how to use the technology than we do, so are we involving them in the decisions we make about use and purchase of technology...or are we doing what we've always done and assumed we know better than they do?
