5 tips om tekniksäkerhet

5 tips om tekniksäkerhet
This was written by Lynette Owens, director of Trend Micro’s Internet Safety for Kids and Families division. By Lynette Owens The Internet has always been around as far as our children can tell. Two-year-old Maggie Awad plays an app game called, Icee Maker, on her mother's IPod Touch (Melina Mara/THE WASHINGTON POST) watching videos, or using Skype with far-off relatives. This is not bad news. We are in an interesting time in history when models of teaching and learning are being enhanced in ways not previously possible without technology. It is safe to assume that our schools will most certainly be wired for improving learning and teaching, if not today, then soon. As a parent and youth online safety advocate, I do believe, however, that we cannot lose sight of the larger implications of allowing our kids access to the Internet as young as 5 and 6 years old. This is where schools come in. In my own children’s school district, we are in the midst of a one-to-one laptop program roll-out. Related:  Digital teknikInternet Safety

School Leaders: Guiding Teachers into the Digital Age Image credit: iStockphoto We all know that leadership is important in education. Without strong leadership, education initiatives tend to crash and burn. Consider professional learning. Leadership is one of Learning Forward's seven Standards for Professional Learning -- evidence-based standards that outline the characteristics of professional learning that lead to effective teaching practices and improved student learning. This standard holds that leaders develop their own and others' capacity to learn and lead professional learning, advocate for it, provide support systems, and distribute leadership and responsibility for its effectiveness and results. I thought about this standard while reading a recent evaluation of an on-demand computer-based professional learning application. These results add to the evidence on the importance of leadership in professional learning and help combat the rhetoric that we don't know what effective professional learning is (we do).

Cybersecurity: Everyone's Fault As TNW reported just a short while ago, the Senate’s leading cybersecurity bill failed today, as it did not secure the needed 60-vote majority to beat back a filibuster and pass. This likely means that no bill will be passed this year, in relation to boosting the nation’s cybersecurity preparedness and prowess. This has a great number of people unhappy. Not only the bill’s named authors, an Independent and a Republican, but the White House, along with other Senators. Today, despite the strong leadership of Senators Reid, Lieberman, Collins, Rockefeller and Feinstein, an overwhelming majority of Senate Republicans blocked consideration of the Cybersecurity Act of 2012, the only comprehensive piece of cybersecurity legislation that would have begun to address vulnerabilities in the nation’s critical infrastructure systems. Now, to more commentary, as though I’m sure you love hearing me talk, those in power are often more apropos: Interestingly, over 200 amendments were filed.

Appar för elever i behov av läs- och skrivstöd By phaewilk MorgueFile Jag brinner för att alla elever ska få tillgång till litteraturen, att få uppleva bokstävernas underbara värld. Jag är själv en bokmal men läser idag nästan uteslutande med öronen (jag lyssnar på ljudböcker). Inte för att jag har läs- och skrivproblem utan för att jag gillar det:) Jag har ett val. Fördomar finns överallt, och mer än en gång har jag fått höra: äh du har ju inte läst boken, du har ju bara lyssnat på den…. Jag brukar upplysa dem om att man kan läsa med både ögon och öron;) Trots detta är det för en del människor inte helt rumsrent att lyssna på ljudböcker, ”det är inte att läsa på riktigt”. Jag önskar att alla elever på sina egna villkor ska få möjlighet till att ta till sig alla spännande äventyr som gömmer sig bakom alla bokstäver, och inte bara det. By Sgarton MorgueFiles Men om jag har svårt att läsa eller skriva är det inte lika självklart att jag blir uppmanad att använda något redskap för att kunna presetera lika bra som mina klasskamrater.

Digital Agenda: children using social networks at a younger age; many unaware of basic privacy risks, says survey Brussels, 18 April 2011 Digital Agenda: children using social networks at a younger age; many unaware of basic privacy risks, says survey 77% of 13-16 year olds and 38% of 9-12 year olds in the EU have a profile on a social networking site, according to a pan-European survey carried out for the European Commission. Yet, a quarter of children who use social networking sites like Facebook, Hyves, Tuenti, Nasza-Klasa SchuelerVZ, Hi5, Iwiw or Myvip say their profile is set to "public" meaning that everyone can see it, and many of these display their address and/or phone number. Neelie Kroes, Vice President of the European Commission for the Digital Agenda said: “Growing numbers of children are on social networking sites but many are not taking all necessary steps to protect themselves online. Children are active users of social networking sites 15% of 9-12 year olds say they have more than 100 contacts on their profile, with a high of 47% in Hungary. What is the Commission doing?
