"It’s not likely that you’ve walked off of a pier while staring at your cell phone, but it’s virtually guaranteed that you’ve been distracted by your phone in a moment when your attention should have been elsewhere. We like to think that we’re experts in how and when to use our smartphones, but the truth is that they’ve really only been around for a few years. Usage and adoption of new technology nearly always outpaces our understanding of how that technology will ultimately affect us."

"The infographic shows that nearly 80% of recruiters check for your postings and frequently reject applicants because of their online presence. The infographic provides a checklist of sorts to guide you in posting the right things. We typically know what is best for us. We all should know what is legal and illegal. What we do know is what is private and what is not. That goes for our thoughts, our whereabouts, our pass-times. If we are responsible and forward-thinking, then we know that not everything we do is for everyone to know."

"You've made your will. Everything is in place for your death. Except perhaps your digital assets management plan. This is a list of all the digital or online "stuff" a person uses, including passwords and usernames for social media and email services. Legal experts welcome a booming cultural trend towards making a written plan. Sometimes called a digital estate inventory, the plan lawyers recommend comes with a will so family or friends can access online sites and services."

"That's where Wickr comes in. The app, which could best be described as a Snapchat for grown-ups, is only available for iOS right now. Launched in June 2012 by a group of security experts, the app sends messages, photos (and soon videos) that will eventually be erased. Wickr allows users to choose how long they want their digital missives to last: as short as one second, and as long as 5 days, 23 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds. The main difference between the two apps, and the reason Wickr is more ambitious than Snapchat, is that it encrypts all messages, striving for perfect privacy and security. Wickr doesn't just want messages to disappear once they are sent. Wickr doesn't want anybody, including the app itself, to know what your digital correspondence contains."

"If the new primary computing curriculum has achieved anything,  it is introducing the word algorithm into the vocabulary of most teachers.

"This afternoon I was asked if I could put together a list of my favorite Google Docs, Sheets, and Forms Add-ons. In the past I had put together lists of Sheets scripts, but most of those lists are outdated as Add-ons have mostly replaced scripts. Here's my updated list of my favorite Google Docs, Sheets and Forms Add-ons."

"When a teacher assigns homework, she makes some big assumptions about students’ home lives. Do they have the requisite supplies? A quiet place to study? Supportive parents or guardians who will motivate them to work? Knowledgable guardians who can assist with challenging problems?"
