Email Prank at Brooklyn Tech: A Lesson for All - 1 views

  •  
    Student government members at BTHS received an email saying a construction accident caused school to be closed the following day. From there, the message spread rapidly across social networks. Problem was there had been no accident, and the email, while appearing to come from an official school address, was a gag, which the student newspaper subsequently reported later that evening.

    "This looked believable, but it could not be corroborated from an official source," says Kevin Jarrett. That's critical, he says, and goes to the cornerstone of any lesson on Internet safety for students-make sure to know where information is coming from by developing a healthy skepticism. But administrators also need to learn how easily these kinds of pranks can be generated."

All About Explorers [Fictional Site] - 2 views

  •  
    This fictional site was developed by a group of teachers as a means of teaching students about the Internet. Although the Internet can be a tremendous resource for gathering information about a topic, they found that students often did not have the skills to discern useful information from worthless data. The teachers set out to develop a series of lessons for elementary age students in which they would demonstrate that just because it is out there for the searching does not mean it is worthwhile.

Fact or Folly - For Teachers | Introduction - 0 views
