Webonauts Internet Academy Come play again later! Come play again tomorrow! S.O.S. for Information Literacy Web-monitoring software gathers data on kid chats (AP) -- Parents who install a leading brand of software to monitor their kids' online activities may be unwittingly allowing the developer to gather marketing data from children as young as 7 - and to sell that information. Software sold under the Sentry and FamilySafe brands can read private chats conducted through Yahoo, MSN, AOL and other services, and send that data back to the company. The information is then offered to businesses seeking ways to tailor their marketing messages to kids. "This scares me more than anything I have seen using monitoring technology," said Parry Aftab, a child-safety advocate. The software does not record children's names, addresses or other identifiable information, but it knows how old they are because parents customize the programs to be more or less permissive, depending on age. Five other makers of parental-control software contacted by The Associated Press, including McAfee Inc. and Symantec Corp., said they do not sell chat data to advertisers.

Friends . Bullies someone else. No matter what situation or form it comes in, bullying can make you feel depressed, hurt, and alone. It can keep you from enjoying the activities and places that are part of your life. Bullying happens everywhere, whether it's your town or Paris, France. But why should something that can make a person so miserable have to be part of growing up? Let's start by looking at the different kinds of bullying: Physical bullying means: Hitting, kicking, or pushing someone...or even just threatening to do it Stealing, hiding or ruining someone's things Making someone do things he or she don't want to do Verbal bullying means: Name-calling Teasing Insulting Relationship bullying means: Refusing to talk to someone Spreading lies or rumors about someone Making someone do things he or she doesn't want to do What do all these things have in common?

Nancy Willard: Cyber Savvy: A Web 2.0 Approach to Internet Safety Cyber Savvy: Supporting Safe and Responsible Internet Use Issues related to youth risk online and Internet use management are high on the “radar” in many schools. Following the lead of Virginia, many states also are beginning to require that students be instructed in Internet safety. Student use of Web 2.0 technologies is expanding, along with incredible opportunities for interactive educational activities -- and a host of risk and management concerns. Even the most die-hard techies now recognize that filtering systems are not the solution they were promised to be. We also are seeing signs of an emerging recognition that the Web 1.0 Internet safety approach -- based on simplistic, fear-based rules -- is ineffective. The understanding also is emerging that youth risk online must be viewed from the perspective of adolescent risk. An effective school-based strategy to address the issue of online safety should include these six key components: Education World® Copyright © 2007 Education World
