'Video-Gaming' Child Predators Offering Points For Nude Photos - 0 views

  • Maurer is warning parents to take precautions when it comes to gaming consoles because most are hooked to the Internet and anyone can be chatting with children during game play. IBSYS.ad.AdManager.registerPosition({ "iframe": false, "addlSz": "", "element": "ad_N6C0061.2D12", "interstitials": false, "beginDate": "", "endDate": "", "getSect": "", "name": "square", "qString": "", "width": "300", "height": "250", "section": "", "useId": "16995600", "interactive": false, "useSameCategory": false, "topic": "", "swSectionRoot": "", "useZone": "", "type": "DOM" }); "My theory on it is that predators are going to go where kids are, and kids are playing video games so it's a perfect place for them to be," Maurer said.

    Child predators offering game points in exchange for nude images through Internet-connected video games have prompted a warning for parents. "Kids are playing games, and they are being asked to take photos of themselves naked in order to get game points," state attorney Cybercrime Detective Lt. David Maurer said. "There is not only the chatting version of the games but also a webcam involved."

Blocking the Future [AASA] - 1 views

  • In this environment, school district leaders have a critical choice to make: Will their schools pro-actively model and teach the safe and appropriate use of these digital tools or will they reactively block them out and leave students and families to fend for themselves?
  • o better way to highlight organizational unimportance than to block out the tools that are transforming the rest of society.
  • the specific policies are much less important than the general mindset of the school district.

  • If a district has decided to figure out ways to facilitate technology usage and empower students and staff, the policies will follow accordingly. Conversely, if a district is determined to treat technology from a fearful or wary standpoint, its policies will reflect that position as well.
  • they do have to exercise appropriate oversight and convey the message, repeatedly and often, that frequent, appropriate technology usage is both important and expected.
  • they have the right mindset. Their first reaction is not “keep this out” but rather “how we can make this work?” We can learn from these organizations how they have balanced safety concerns with the need to empower students with 21st century skills and dispositions.
  • lease don’t relegate your students, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds, to second-class status in the new economy because you left it to them and their families to figure out on their own what it means to be digital, global citizens.

    [May 2008] AASA article gives examples of school organizations that are desperately and inappropriately blocking the future and Scott McLeod pleads, "Please don't block the future." Please don't relegate your students, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds, to second-class status in the new economy because you left it to them and their families to figure out on their own what it means to be digital, global citizens. Ask AASA and its state affiliates to provide more technology leadership-related professional development opportunities. And let us know how we can help.

Stolen Picture : Extraordinary Mommy - 0 views

  •  
    This is an amazing first-person account of a family photo that had been posted on a personal blog and somehow ended up being used in a storefront ad in Prague! A friend who lived there happened to spot it one day and sent the woman the storefront photos. The primary source of the photo had been this woman's family blog. Copyright violation? The photo had clearly been used for commercial purposes without permission. But what can she do when it involves a country so far away? Check out the blog comments for a lively conversation on the topic, as everyone weighs in.

Identity Theft Leads to Child-Porn Arrest Nightmare - 0 views

  • Simon Bunce of Hampshire, England, not only had his credit-card number stolen online but was arrested and falsely accused of being a pedophile when that card number was used to buy child pornography.
  • Yet that only came after he'd lost his $250,000-a-year job, his father and siblings stopped talking to him and his computer was taken away for several months, the BBC reports. Bunce had the misfortune of being caught up in Operation Ore, a massive British online kiddie-porn crackdown in 2003 that itself grew out of Operation Avalanche, an earlier American bust which began with a 1999 raid on Landslide Productions, a Texas mom-and-pop operation that handled credit-card transactions for porn Web sites.
  • about 7,200 people — whose card numbers showed up on the list.
  • ...2 more annotations...
  • Bunce was arrested "on suspicion of possessing indecent images of children, downloading indecent images of children and incitement to distribute indecent images of children" — all before a single image of such had been found on his computers at home and at work. He quickly found himself unemployed and estranged from his family. But his wife stuck by him, and while his computer sat in police custody waiting to be examined, Bunce took action.
  • Bunce used the U.S. Freedom of Information Act and a catalog of Internet Protocol addresses to establish that his credit-card number had been used in Jakarta, Indonesia, to buy child pornography online at the same moment he used the card to pay the bill at a London restaurant.
  •  
    Learning how to safely use e-commerce websites is important, but also, people need to be aware to protect their credit card numbers and identities as can be seen in this horrific case study. When websites are not safe about their use of credit card numbers, it can have horrible impacts such as this man losing his $250,000 a year job and becoming estranged from his family, when they thought he bought child pornography.

Survey: Family time eroding as Internet use soars - 0 views

  •  
    The decline in family time coincides with a rise in Internet use and the popularity of social networks, though a new study stopped just short of assigning blame. The Annenberg Center for the Digital Future at the University of Southern California is reporting this week that 28 percent of Americans it interviewed last year said they have been spending less time with members of their households. That's nearly triple the 11 percent who said that in 2006.\n\nThese people did not report spending less time with their friends, however.
