What is the key to achieving a digitally literate society? Young people’s ability to evaluate the information they find online is ‘bleak’. This was the troubling conclusion reached in the well-known 2016 Stanford History Education Group’s research on Evaluating Information: the cornerstone of civic online research. Three years later results from their new research study Students’ Civic Online Reasoning: a national portrait have been received and unfortunately, the outlook isn’t any brighter. Between June 2018 and May 2019, the group assessed a sample of 3,446 students across the United States. A Guide for Bringing the SAMR Model to iPads When used effectively, iPads can develop thinkers and problem solvers. They can be used to transform learning inside and outside of the classroom, and offer limitless opportunities. Many educators are effectively integrating technology in the classroom using iPads to achieve the 4C’s, or “super skills,” that digital learners need to compete in our global society. But in order to do that, the focus has to shift from apps to content: that’s when true redefinition takes place. When my district rolled out our iPad initiative in 2012, teachers thought they needed specific apps for every content area. Eventually, we ended up with literally thousands of apps in our portal.

Safeguarding Children As parents – or relatives, teachers and other adults responsible to children’s safety – we want our children and those we look after to be healthy and happy … and to develop well both physically and mentally. Above all, it’s also instinctive that we want kids to be safe. Children learn through exploration and natural curiosity, and it is part of our job as parents and carers to encourage that. However, as our children grow up, develop and discover new experiences, we have to take more and different steps to ensure their safety. Until their understanding and instincts catch up with their curiosity, our children need to be protected from everyday dangers – whether crossing the road, in and around the home, trying new foods or talking to new people they meet.

The Original TEACH Act Toolkit Welcome to the new home of the original "TEACH Act Toolkit" created in 2003 to facilitate understanding and application of the then new "Technology, Education, and Copyright Harmonization Act (TEACH Act)", passed in 2002. TEACH was intended to update the section of the copyright act (specifically, Section 110(2)) most applicable to online digital course. Thus, TEACH is not a separate or additional copyright law; it simply replaces an already existing section. TEACH, or more accurately, Section 110(2), is triggered whenever the performance or display of a copyrighted work is transmitted.

ISTE Standards Education technology standards to transform learning and teaching The time for major change in education is now. In a world where rapid advances in technology have a profound impact on the ways we work, communicate and live, education has struggled to keep pace. The ISTE Standards work together to support educators, students and leaders with clear guidelines for the skills and knowledge necessary to move away from the factory model. The absurdly simple guide to backing up your PC The first rule of the royal society for keeping-your-hard-work-and-data-safe is: Always, always back up. The second rule is "it's not that hard so get off your duff and do it." It's the latter that most of us have issues with.
