Privacy advocates unmask Twitter troll - 1 views

    What happens when you troll Tor developers hard? You get unmasked. Towards the end of last week, a troll who had sent various aggressive tweets to a host of security experts and privacy advocates associated with the Tor project and browser, which enables online anonymity, had his identity exposed.
    It is important to stand up against all kinds of bullying, in this case it is cyberbullying. But what is the difference when it comes to someone bullies you, and you bully that person back? It is still bullying. Although I think some actions should be taken to tackle the people trolling, it is difficult because of the massive amount of people who are leaving angry or horrible responses. To monitor every netizens activity is impossible and inefficient, it also violates privacy rights (even when we know we are monitored at some point). What do you think about creating filters? I think that will restrict the freedom of speech people have. So is having freedom and open access such a brilliant thing? Would it not cause moral conflicts? Education and moral standards would not always relate, because emotions is one of the measures too.
    Thanks for your sharing. A lot of people have been the victim of cyberbullying, the reason of cyberbullying has become increasingly common might has some relationship with the advanced technology and also due to people can say whatever they want to say by hiding behind their digital identities, so they do not care about moral standard any more. And it's true that it's really hard to take action to everyone who involved in cyberbullying because the amount is huge.

Exploring the Benefits and Challenges of Using Laptop Computers in Higher Education Cla... - 0 views

    Kay, R., Lauriclla, S. (2011). Exploring the Benefits and Challenges of Using Laptop Computers in Higher Education Classrooms: A Formative Analysis. Canadian Journal of Learning and Technology. 37:1
    a. Laptops and mobile devices are ubiquitous in todays classrooms as students are digital natives. Because of decreasing prices of technology over the past few decades, an overwhelming majority of the university students surveyed own a laptop (87%). Because of this quick onset of technological adoption, culture has lagged, in terms of re-defining the social institutions that such mobile and computer technologies affect. According to this analysis, students feel that the use of a laptop helps in aiding studies, is useful for gathering course and supplementary materials and engaging in peer collaboration. Several challenges have been noted: communication based challenges, relating to social media, email and messaging services; and entertainment based challenges, relating to media consumption. These challenges serve as potential sources of distraction for the student using the technology and others. In their findings, 16% of students reported being distracted by pornography during class, on their own or others' computer screens, which ranked higher than computer games, at 1%. The authors conclude that the benefits of laptop use in class outweigh the challenges 2:1. Possibly, if the functionality of student laptops are integrated into course curriculum further, students can benefit from further peer collaboration, increased academic benefit and decreased distractions.

From Distraction to Engagement: Wireless Devices in the Classroom - 0 views

    a. Finding a balance between technology and teaching has proved challenging in the traditional classroom. Some institutions, such as University of Chicago Law School, have altogether banned internet access in the classroom, claiming that it imposes on the integrity of the education. Although the authors draw attention to research demonstrating the rampant frequency of distractions with laptop and mobile technology amongst students, they beg the question of whose fault it really is - and begs educators to reflect on their own teaching, and the educational institution as a whole. Fang describes possible solutions for the distraction dilemma for educators to apply to the modern classroom. Filtering applications can help to create a temporary filter on computer applications to ensure a singular task, or set of permitted tasks, are accessed. Network switching allows faculty and network administrators to determine which, if any, applications can use a network at a given time. Social solutions can also be effective; by educating the student on the issue of technology-related distraction in classrooms, and assessing teaching styles, class formats and institutional practices. In the modern classroom, the professor and technology should coexist peacefully; yet it will take social and technical finesse in order to find the right balance for the maximum benefit of the student.

Lectura digital y aprendizaje: las nuevas alfabetizaciones - 5 views

    En el entorno global de la información el tiempo se mueve rápidamente. La llegada de Internet ha puesto en cuestión la necesidad de bibliotecas y bibliotecarios
  • ...1 more comment...
    Creo que no sólo de las bibliotecas y bibliotecarios, sino de cualquier persona.
    El contenido fundamentalmente disponible en la Web y los medios electrónicos ha cambiado la dinámica de cómo operan y administran su misión las bibliotecas. Lo que está llevando hacia un cambio en cuanto a las responsabilidades y competencias profesionales; los bibliotecarios en esta era digital proporcionan acceso, orientación y formación a los materiales físicos y electrónicos en línea sin dejar de atender las tareas fundamentales que han contribuido a la esencia a la profesión durante siglos.

Why I Won't Accept Your Linkedin Invitation - 5 views

    An example of how one person establish his "filter" for accepting/rejecting invitations in this networked world.
  • ...2 more comments...
    Really helpful and basic filters. I especially appreciate: If you can't take 2 minutes to write, 'Hey Mike, I know we don't know each other, but I think we have some mutual interests (or connections) and I would value you in my network," then I won't take 1 second to click "accept." Many people use linkedin for their professional connections. Considering why Mike doesn't accept invitations helps one to understand how to make better use of the site and how to keep it manageable for your own uses.
    Great way to filter people on Linkedin, the thing is, at least in my case, if by any chance I will invite someone always write a letter, but normally I take a look of profile before accepting a person in my net. That is because sometime there are interesting people that do not know the Netiquettes. Cheers Julia
    Do we need a network for possible contacts or is Linkedin a source for active contacts? How many true contacts are realistic to handle and whatfor?
    I totally agree! One genuine connection is better than a thousand random "contacts".

La sanación de los hombres en su totalidad, son expresadas en los resultados del todo en la vida y en el màs allá, pues, al irse de éste mundo en estado de felicidad de la manera màs cómica o desastrosa para otros seres, allí se evidencia el verdadero valor de la sanación, ya que no presenta rasgos de incertidumbre.
