Supreme Court will decide when Facebook threats become criminal threats

Supreme Court will decide when Facebook threats become criminal threats | School Leadership, Leadership, in General, Tools and Resources, Advice and humor | Scoop.it
The Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case that will decide whether posting violent fantasies on your own Facebook wall can count as a criminal threat to others. Today, the court said that it...
Sharrock's insight:

excerpt: "An FBI agent became aware of his posts and visited him, and he subsequently posted detailed lyrics about slitting her throat, which was apparently the final straw. He was arrested and charged with threatening his coworkers, his wife, police officers, kindergarteners, and the agent, under a law that bans using interstate commerce (in this case, the internet) to send "any communication containing any threat to kidnap any person or any threat to injure the person of another." In late 2011, he was sentenced to 44 months in prison, which he concluded in February, and three years of supervised release."

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.

Reading Sage: Webb's Depth of Knowledge (DOK) | Bloom's Taxonomy vs. Norman Webb's depth of knowledge

The Common Core Standards are the cornerstones of the Smarter Balanced and PARCC assessments, Webb’s Depth of Knowledge (scale of cognitive demand) and Blooms Revised Taxonomy (levels of intellectual ability) are the framework and the structures that will be used to evaluate students. Assessing curriculum, developing formative assessments, evaluation curriculum, and evaluation of students knowledge at the highest levels is being shared by two progressive cognitive matrices. Depth of knowledge, and complexity of knowledge is the heart of the more rigorous assessments being implemented in 2014. They share many ideas and concepts yet are different in level of cognitive demand, level of difficulty, complexity of verbs vs. depth of thinking required, and the scale of cognitive demand. Teachers need to learn how the frameworks are used to develop curriculum and how to use them to enhance instructions. Teachers and students can use Blooms Questions Stems and Webb’s DOK questions stems to create higher order thinking and improve achievement. 80% of the PARCC assessments will be based on the highest levels of blooms and the deepest levels of Webb’s DOK. Are you ready to use the DOK or Blooms daily in your class?

Internet Privacy and Social Networking Study

Internet Privacy and Social Networking Study | School Leadership, Leadership, in General, Tools and Resources, Advice and humor | 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.
