The Ultimate Guide To Online Privacy | Edudemic - 0 views

  • What’s the harm in essentially ignoring that privacy policy? While the majority of the time it’s harmless, there are some ne’er-do-wells that may gather your personal information and sell it to marketers, advertisers, or spammers. While terrible, it’s not unheard of.
  • According to a recent report, there’s a big reason users don’t read privacy policies: they’re too damn long. Of the top 1,000 websites, the longest privacy policy takes about 45 minutes to read…the average takes 10 minutes. About 72% of these websites allow users to opt out of being tracked. However, about 40% make you make navigate to a different (sometimes hard-to-find) section of the website to opt out.
  • Google has tools like the Google Dashboard, the Ads Preferences Manager and encrypted search if you’re looking for some of the more popular ways to manage your Google interactions. Most recently, Google launched an extension for Chrome called Keep My Opt-Outs, which allows you to opt out permanently from ad tracking cookies. And pretty soon Chrome will be extending the availability of 2-step verification, an advanced account security solution that is now helping protect more than 1,000 new accounts a day from common problems like phishing and password compromise. Right now it’s available to Google Apps Accounts and should available to the general public in a few weeks.

  • Pidder is a German startup and, more importantly, the first social network based on privacy by design. Pia Pauls, a co-founder of the site, reached out to Edudemic to make everyone aware of Pidder and it’s definitely worth checking out. Here’s a synopsis directly from Pia: In addition to social networking where you stay in control of your own data and only share it with those you deliberately choose, pidder is a place to easily and securely manage passwords and logins. Pidder even provides an identity management service allowing the use of pseudonyms.
  • Privacy Rights Clearinghouse is a great place to get easy-to-digest literature about what rights you actually have online and more.

How Social Media Can Improve Student Grades… | Bit Rebels - 0 views

    Some surprising thoughts about how social media use actually correlates with better academic performance.  Note from Miriam: To be fair, better social connectedness in general probably has more to do with doing well at school than social media per se. But there are so many new possibilities and uses for social networking networking that whatever connections already exist can only be amplified and empowered online.

We Are All Connected | Connected Principals - 8 views

  • In fact, nearly all of the most hyped developments on the Web in the past few years have been tools for augmenting social connection…
  • This is why it is frustrating when there is talk that the use of technology and social media sites actually disconnects our students, when in my own experience, I have found the opposite. The more I have connected through our staff and student blogs, the more I have learned about them and what is happening in the classroom.
  • As educators, we need to continue to find safe and effective ways for our students to have the opportunity to participate in this human network.

  • If relationships are the foundation of our schools, and technology helps to create and enhance these, it is hard to contest that social media should not be more apparent in our learning environments.
    Relationships are the key foundation to the success of students in our schools. The more we connect with them, the more likely they are to succeed. This is not only true with our students, but also essential with our staff. If we know those we serve, the more likely we are to all be successful.
