As students work on projects, permissions for photos is important, this website lists 50 of the top places to get free photos.

Do you want to know who is tracking you and how? Install the Collusion Firefox add on and start understanding who is tracking you. I am going to use this with students for some education.

For those comparing the FTC's stand against Facebook with Google Buzz, here is the Forbes article on the April 2011 Google Buzz settlement. We will have our Digiteen students looking at this material as they discuss privacy.

Facebook faces 20 years of privacy audits by the Federal Trade Commission. Similar to an agreement with Google Buzz,this shows the FTC's commitment to project consumer privacy. (Any wonder Google Buzz is going bye- bye.)

It seems harmless but sometimes just commenting on Facebook in the normal course of business causes problems. Now that every person on Facebook literally has a fan page (people can follow you without you having a fanpage) you are going to see this happen more often. If you really want to share with your friends, this certainly gives rise to websites like Path that only let you friend up to 150 people and keep things very private. Public officials may be left with no other option. Show me a person who doesn't say something politically incorrect and I'll show you someone in the graveyard. We all mess up.

This would be good information to use as you talk to students about digital citizenship. From the US Federal Trade commission this vdieo and website talks about "free trial offers" and what you are giving up when you sign up for them.

This is the article to share with students. Sometimes seeing adults do this helps students disconnect and see a lack of civility for what it is: childish.

This article points out that up to 30 months after photos are deleted from Facebook that they are still there. If someone has the direct URL to a photo, it is still accessible. Students should be taught about this and we should educate ourselves as well. Once something is uploaded it is out there. Period. You cannot take it back.

  • Even if you delete incriminating photos on your Facebook profile, the company is keeping them accessible to anyone online for up to 30 months.

An excellent article to make the case for digital citizenship education, I love the quote at the end that the law "can't take the place of good manners, social norms, and etiquette." Do we think that students just develop good manners on their own? Perhaps manners, norms, and etiquette would much better evolve with multiple generations and ages working together as we discuss and grapple with such issues.

This is another excellent article about the changing state of the law and the Internet and includes the precedent that anonymous doesn't really mean anonymous any more - particularly if the anonymous person breaks the law.

  • Love posted allegedly derogatory and false comments about the designer -- among them that she had a "history of dealing cocaine" -- on her now-discontinued Twitter feed.
  • it's typically difficult to predict or anticipate technology innovations.
  • Is the Web a unique, separate space or is it really an extension of real space?

If you are working with technology in schools, educational Internet pioneer Larry Magid's new article in the San Jose Mercury News is a MUST READ. Excellent

  • a watershed moment in the 16-year history of online safety education.
  • in that young people were viewed less as potential victims of online crimes and more as participants in a global online community.
  • the "predator panic" that was rampant a few years ago has largely been put to rest as safety experts and law enforcement studies from the Crimes Against Children Research Center and elsewhere show that, statistically, the odds of a prepubescent child being sexually molested by an

Teachers have a different standard. It is fascinating to read this newspaper article and also the responses. Our students on Flat Classroom project and Digiteen will be reviewing this information because teachers are held to a higher standard online.

  • And some districts -- from South Dakota to New Jersey -- are starting to limit what teachers can do on the sites.
  • "It is the responsibility of all individuals associated with the Foundation to act in a manner that will ensure the public's trust as well as the trust of colleagues and peers.
  • he has heard that some teachers have "risqué" photos on their accounts, but he hasn't actually seen any.

Top five ways students use technology to cheat -- of course, all of them involve the cell phone, which will certainly push many to continue to say they should be banned. To me, teachers should be vigilant and watchful. Also, who says you have to give the same test to all of your classes or a pop quiz on the same day? It is time to get smart!

Excellent reflections on some of the most poingnant issues we've had on Digiteen this year. I agree with Phil totally!

  • I think it is that there is a lot of value in allowing students to make mistakes in an environment like the Ning where they can make mistakes and learn from them. I was nervous about the Ning component of this project because of the potential for my students to make mistakes on a public site, but if they are never given a chance to really fully participate in real world experiences then how are they ever going to learn how to navigate these experiences successfully.
  • This short story has really reinforced for me the power of these global collaborative projects, and it’s not over yet. I wonder what other teachable moments and wonderful connections will happen next?

Article about teachers being filmed and put on youtube -- I did a post a while back called "spies like us" that talks about this happening. Again, talk about behavior to kids before this happens at your school - www.digiteen.net is our effort.

Fascinating ponderings by Mike Curtain about how many of us are relinquishing our own privacy. This is a very thought provoking post and yet another one I wouldn't have read, had he not linked to my blog post yesterday asking for bloggers to share their links.

This is a very powerful blog post. Wow! I personally think there is a balance here, but also agree than many are not considering the privacy they are relinquishing when they post things that don't belong out there for everyone to see. Internet privacy is an illusion, it really is.

Great post by Alfred Thompson, "the" microsoft education blogger. I think he hits the nail on the head with this one. Great post!
