6 things schools can do to ensure student data privacy

6 things schools can do to ensure student data privacy | Resources for Teachers | Scoop.it

"Student data privacy is quite a different topic from the headlines most people read concerning data breaches. It is not about malicious intruders hacking or stealing credentials to get into a system to steal corporate intellectual property or records to sell on the dark web. Student data privacy concerns, specifically, center on the misuse of personally identifiable information, known by its acronym PII."

Trisha Ahrent Beamish's curator insight, August 6, 5:31 PM

Students need to be aware of their rights about their privacy on social media.  Older students need to be aware of their personal information being available on the web for anyone to access.  I hope that administrators will think about how they can help protect students privacy with these helpful tips.

The challenge facing libraries in an era of fake news

The challenge facing libraries in an era of fake news | Resources for Teachers | Scoop.it

Donald Barclay writes: "Thirty or 40 years ago, a student writing a research paper on the topic of acid rain might have needed to decide whether an article from a scientific journal like Nature was a more appropriate source than an article from a popular magazine like Time.

 

Today’s students, however, must know how to distinguish between articles published by genuine scholarly journals and those churned out by look-alike predatory and fake journals that falsely claim to be scholarly and peer-reviewed."

Mary Reilley Clark's curator insight, January 8, 12:18 PM

There's a link in this article to the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education from the Association of College and Research Libraries. Barclay notes that, "This new approach asks students to put in the time and effort required to determine the credibility and appropriateness of each information source for the use to which they intend to put it." If we in the primary and secondary libraries haven't educated students on how to do this, I don't think they'll have the mental stamina to do it in college! This makes me even more excited about the workshop our local state university is offering to get secondary library staff to understand what info literacy skills college students need, and to design collaborative lessons to help our students strengthen (or build) those skills.
