Student Safety in the Age of Facebook -- THE Journal - 2 views

  •  
    Interesting article that discusses AUP. One analogy is how we make kids water safe. You don't make kids water-safe by trying to eliminate swimming pools. You make them safe by teaching them how to swim. Teach about acceptable use and not restriction of technology.

Teaching Copyright.org - 0 views

  • This misinformation is harmful, because it discourages kids and teens from following their natural inclination to be innovative and inquisitive. The innovators, artists and voters of tomorrow need to know that copyright law restricts many activities but also permits many others. And they need to know the positive steps they can take to protect themselves in the digital sphere. In short, youth don't need more intimidation — what they need is solid, accurate information
  • There's a lot of misinformation out there about legal rights and responsibilities in the digital era.
  •

Sexting and common sense - 0 views

  •  
    I am sure that Vermonters don't like the idea of teens sending sexy pictures from one phone to another. Nor do Ohio and Utah parents want their kids using cell phone minutes to bare their bodies with their buddies. Nevertheless, their state legislatures are among the first trying to sensibly ratchet down the penalties for sexting. They are backing away from laws that currently treat a teenager with a cell phone the same way they treat a child pornographer. They know there's a difference between truly dreadful judgment and a felony.
