Minimizing BYOD security risks through policy and technology

There are BYOD security risks, but there are also ways you can address those risks. Security and acceptable use policies set rules and MDM helps enforce them.

Spotlight covers the intersections of technology and education, going behind the research to show how digital media is used in and out of classrooms to expand learning.

 

“When I talk to colleagues in Finland, they say, how do you filter?” said Jim Klein, director of Information Services and Technology at the Saugus Union School District in Southern California.

 

“They say, our kids’ filters are in their heads.

 

You do this by giving them a safe environment to educate themselves instead of sticking your head in the sand and pretending these technologies don’t exist.”

Yes, I agree, time to tune in instead of tuning out, what we don't understand.
Dodie Ellen Ballard's curator insight, March 13, 2013 2:44 AM

While this seems to be a struggle for some educational institutions, the policies not only have to be re-written, but the re-write must embrace and not negate the use of technology.

Student BYOD Policies 101: Back to Basics — iKeepSafe

Student BYOD Policies 101: Back to Basics — iKeepSafe | project based learning | Scoop.it

"While speaking with school and college administrators about technology issues facing public educational institutions, I am frequently questioned about acceptable use, social media and, more recently, Bring Your Own Device (“BYOD”) policies.

 

While I have felt confident that most educational institutions I have encountered were adequately equipped to begin the process of updating or implementing new acceptable use and social media policies, I have been less confident about institutions looking for quick answers to complex questions about BYOD policies for students. Rather than rushing into the adoption of a BYOD policy, I encourage you and your educational institution to consider the five issues raised in this first blog (of several) about Student BYOD policies."

Bringing Acceptable-Use Policies into the 21st Century

Bringing Acceptable-Use Policies into the 21st Century | project based learning | Scoop.it

"Wikipedia defines an acceptable-use policy (AUP) as a collection of rules established by the owner or manager of a network, Web site, or computer system to restrict the ways in which it’s accessed and used. Sounds autocratic and binding, doesn’t it? But what if a school district’s IT department didn’t write its AUP? What if, instead, a variety of stakeholders collaborated to write a policy that reflects the district’s values in terms of instruction and how technology is used?"

Facing up to Facebook: A Guide for FE and HE

Facing up to Facebook: A Guide for FE and HE | project based learning | Scoop.it

In this guide, you’ll find summaries of the key legal considerations of using Facebook in an FE and HE context from JISC Legal.

 

The General Teaching Council heard 336 cases of ‘unacceptable professional conduct’ last year and 43 of these involved the use of online chatrooms and email. Consequences may vary from internal disciplinary action, to the involvement of outside agencies such as the police. Examples of communications ‘outside the boundaries of the professional teacher/student relationship’ or ‘a breach of the standards expected’ are included in the article. Staff in FE and HE should be very wary of potential risks when considering befriending students and consult any institutional policy on the matter. Having a separate professional account may prevent confusion. Institutions are reminded to update acceptable use policies to include the use of social media. More information on this issue can be accessed on the JISC Legal website. jiscleg.al/FacinguptoFacebook

Internet woes continue to haunt me here in China. I just read a great post by Andrew Churches about Acceptable Use Agreements in Junior School (often referred to as AUP's or Acceptable Use Policies as well). Andrew questions the value of these documents.

Are acceptable use policies acceptable or of any use? - Articles - Educational Technology - ICT in Education | project based learning | Scoop.it

Should schools have Acceptable Use Policies? The following article was originally published in April 2008. Apart from the references to the ‘recent’ Byron Review and to Becta, it still seems very apposite to me. If I were writing the article today, I’d bring in Responsible Use Policies, but otherwise I believe it still stands. What do you think?
