In None We Trust I wonder how many teachers would be prepared to gather all their students together at a school assembly sometime and say the following to them … “Look, we just need you all to know that we do NOT trust you. We’ve talked about it, and we think that given the opportunity, you will all get up to no good and make poor decisions. Because of this, we plan to closely monitor your every move and to make sure that you don’t get away with anything, ever. We plan to prevent you from doing common tasks that are probably perfectly fine and safe. Disruptions: Privacy Fades in Facebook Era David Paul Morris/Bloomberg NewsPrivacy is a rare commodity today with the high amount of information being posted on social networking sites such as Facebook. As much as it pains me to say this: privacy is on its deathbed. I came to this sad realization recently when a stranger began leaving comments on photos I had uploaded to Instagram, the iPhone photo-sharing app.

The Digital Citizen To be a citizen, of a country brings certain rights and responsibilities.In Rome, a citizen was exempt some taxes, protected against certain punishments, empowered with rights like voting, making contracts, marriage and standing for office.

13 Tips for Monitoring Kids’ Social Media The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recently released findings from a comprehensive study on the impact social media has on kids and families. Although there are real benefits to kids using sites like Facebook, including increased communication, access to information and help in developing a sense of self, there can be serious downsides to all this online sharing too. Social networking is on the rise, and the study found that 22 percent of teenagers log onto their favorite social media sites more than 10 times a day, and that 75 percent own cell phones. This level of engagement online increases the risks of cyberbullying, “Facebook depression” (a new phenomenon where “de-friending” and online bullying lead to symptoms of depression), exposure to inappropriate content, and sexting. Just as we prepare our kids for life in the real world, we should prepare them for life in the online world.
