Online Privacy: Do You Share Too Much Information?

Online Privacy: Do You Share Too Much Information? | technologies | Scoop.it
Sharing has always been a prominent part of what the Internet is and how it functions. And with social networks exploding in popularity in the past several years, sharing is probably the one aspect we utilize the most on the web.

 

Prick your Learners' conscience and when they’re panicking about being robbed, arrested, followed and stalked, remind them that although it’s scary, they do have control. They can do something about their online privacy.

...a Tech-Recipes Tutorial; Safeguarding

 

eReputation is important to Learning Providers just as much as it is for their learners and other stakeholders.

 

This tutorial allows those Learning Providers with YouTube Channels (and/or presence) to review comments before they are displayed.

 

A "no brainer" me thinks!

YouTube - clea.nr

YouTube can be a great source of educational material to share in a learning environment.

 

Searching YouTube in front of a class, leaves practitioners open to the possibility that something inappropriate will pop-up.

 

Use http://youtube.clea.nr or the Cleaner Internet browser extension and avoid that potential problem.

 

Point a browser to http://youtube.clea.nr and search YouTube and watch YouTube videos without viewing any of the "related" videos or advertisements on YouTube.

Coling's comment, September 16, 2011 2:50 AM
Whilst clearly directed at schoolchildren, the content and simplicity of delivery would work well for staff development, particularly those purported to resist technology. There is a great example of creating a web site in 10 minutes with Google Sites. Not that staff would necessarily want a web site, but just to take the 'mystery' out of what might be regarded as 'beyond me' - 'pass the spanner'
The punchline is that the tutorial is for 7-9 year olds.
John Dalziel's comment, September 16, 2011 8:24 AM
Than you for the comments "Coling"; I wish that language, used on many sites that I've curated, was more generic - learners not children etc.
There are lots of online tools, resources etc. that can be used by all ages depending upon their needs and interests.

Unshorten.It! - Unshorten that URL!

When people see a shortened URL online, they cannot figure out where it leads before actually clicking on it.

 

This can lead to unexpected situations; at times it can even compromise data as links can lead to malicious websites.

 

Here to help prevent all that is a web-based service called Unshorten It.

 

Just...

- visit the Unshorten.it website;

- paste in the shortened URL.

 

Users are then provided with the direct URL of the destination website, its description, its WOT ratings and a preview of the destination website through an image thumbnail.

Cyberbullied – From The Playground To The Web

Cyberbullied – From The Playground To The Web | technologies | Scoop.it

Although not a limiting grade anymore, ensuring your learners are safe, when using tecnology (social Media), is still an important part of education.

 

The explosive growth of social media in recent years has enabled a lot of new opportunities for learners — sharing achievements with family, making plans with new friends and re-living past memories with old friends, just to name a few.

 

The proliferation of social networking also comes with an unfortunate downside.

 

Bullying and nastiness become easier when all they take is a few keystrokes and can be hidden by online anonymity.

 

This post and the infographic raise awareness of the downside. What are your learners doing to protect their younger brothers, sisters, etc.?

Five tools to monitor and manage your online reputation | TechRepublic

Five tools to monitor and manage your online reputation | TechRepublic | technologies | Scoop.it

Many Learning providers, and their learners, conduct business online, and/or they have an online presence for advertising, etc., and as a result they need to manage how the millions upon millions of online users perceive them.

 

It takes only a few bad comments, posts, or blogs to ruin the reputation learning providers and/or learners have spent years building.

 

These tools can be used to help manage eReputations. They require some work to really make the most of what they offer. And most of them aren’t just one-time usage tools — users actually have to spend time with them.

Know IT All for Trainee Teachers

Know IT All for Trainee Teachers | technologies | Scoop.it

Student teachers need to start taking a teachers approach to social networking from the moment they set foot in a learning environment.

 

That means...
- locking down their Facebook account, especially all those student photographs;
– being aware of who they can and can’t add as friends;
- being aware of what they’re saying on sites such as Twitter and how those comments can be construed.

 

Comments can be found by learners, employers, teaching colleagues and, in schools parents.

 

This provides a good guide to social networking for trainee teachers and NQT’s.

 

Note: Qualified teachers (and parents too) should also take a look at some of the resources on this site. There’s some useful stuff there.

Stolen Camera Finder

Stolen Camera Finder | technologies | Scoop.it
stolencamerafinder reunites people with lost or stolen camera equipment by searching the web for the serial numbers embedded in jpegs.
I hope that this online tool isn't ever needed but if, as learning providers, you are considering purchasing cameras that - let's be realistic - may be lost and/or stolen, perhaps you should consider if this tool can be used to locate the "new owners"; you could then contact them and ask them or tell them to return the camera.
What do I mean?
Only some camera models store their unique serial numbers in the Exchangeable image file (exif) data of each digital photograph taken. If one of these cameras are lost or stolen, old photographs may be used to locate the "new owner".
Note: you will have to wait for them to share a picture, that they have taken with your camera, online.
