This is my favorite Evernote "help" shared notebook tha I've found from spgscott. I've subscribed to peruse and learn about these things. I almost wonder if we're seeing the evolution of the textbook. What would happen if we could subscribe to the current research and thoughts of a leading scientist? Are we ready for that sort of messy insight into the minds and thoughts of a person who is turning over ideas in their mind. I"m not sure that we are.
This is my public evernote notebook where I'm sharing notes about global collaboration in education, technology, and my notes from conferences. If you're following the leading edge of technology and use evernote, you can use this notebook to keep abreast of the things I'm collecting in this area. I've added Julie Lindsay to the notebook, so, we'll look to collect there as well.
Evernote shared notebooks are great ways to share collections of information in a slightly different format than bookmarks.
One of my students turned up this information that Facebook is working on controls to help kids under 13 use the service. It is no surprise that 7.5 million Facebook users are under the age of 13 and that 5 million of THOSE are 10 years old or younger. COPPA, while set up to protect children, is actually keeping them from participating in society as they want to. This infographic and information is worth sharing as you educate your students. If you want until they are 13 to talk safety online, that is too late.
"Last June, Consumer Reports magazine said they had unearthed “several disturbing findings” about children and Facebook, including:
20 million minors had used Facebook within the year prior to their study.
7.5 million of those users were under the age of 13 and not permitted to use the site.
5 million of those were 10 years old or younger.
1 million children had been harassed, threatened, or subjected to other forms of cyberbullying in the year prior."
