  • Tool for the Future
    at home needs to be viewed like electricity and water Students Engaged in responsible online communication and technology use Involved in developing applications and tools for use in classrooms across the country These devices would allow students parents and teachers to have open and ongoing discussion around online communication and appropriate behavior Giving children the responsibility for using the device openly with the option for parents to record actions and activities on the device so that if parents suspect that rules have been broken or access to inappropriate material has occurred then parents can then take action Rather than building a wall to restrict access and stop children from making smart decisions give children the option to make the right decisions and take responsibility Teachers Involved in developing an understanding of the device and the opportunity it offers Like any tool in the classroom this does not mean it needs to be used all the time every time it needs to be applied at the most appropriate time and place and that may be based on a decision the student makes Change in the view of communication with others outside the school environment establishing rules and strategies with students Professional development and support in the use of these devices in schools working with teachers over a longer period of time to plan the implementation and use within learning programs Support from leadership around expectations for use and application Schools To make the most of these devices schools and education authorities will need to continue to invest in wireless systems that allow high level data access within schools and across different school networks This would even extend into the public arena with wider adoption of free wifi networks Schools to develop appropriate online behavior expectations for students parents and teachers Clear expectations of the use of the devices within schools would need to be established including communication between the different potential users Expectations for the respect of people s property physical and intellectual Telecommunication Companies Need to start looking at developing plans that allow data access at reasonable prices with filtering restrictions if parents opt for this It would be great if a solution could be developed that offered generic filtering for the majority of parents but for those parents that wanted greater control of any filters they could do so via a web interface Develop phone plans that can be linked with mum or dad s plan and can be restricted to ringing specified numbers if required Provide no cost sim cards that enable device use and data application without call services emergency numbers excepted Provide services where SMS messages can be recorded and store for parents to review if required This strategy can be applied to younger children where they are given the responsibility for their actions however if a parent suspect any issues they can check communication Things that Just needs further consideration As yet we do not have any clear idea about any radiation issues surrounding mobile

  • The Element vs Australian Idol

  • Cisco Kills the Flip
    the device The Flip is a product that changed the way people related to video and made the process of capturing video extremely easy This is one of the great points of the Flip is that the easy of use downloading and software made these devices a pleasure to use let alone the price point For schools the Flip ushered in a tool that enabled video capture and sharing on a much wider scale and with little need for high level skills As one of the first companies to supply the Flip into Australia my online business started because of the Flip back in early 2008 when I saw this product I immediately knew that it was a game changer and that part of what I wanted my business to do was provide technology tools to teachers students and everyday people that could engage them with technology to creating ideas resources and memories My business owes the Flip product a big thank you So what does the future hold I am not sure but over the coming weeks and months I am sure more details will come through and we will make sure to communicate these to all our customers and supporters Further Information TechCrunch Cisco To Shut Down Flip Video Camera Business Bloomberg Cisco to Close Flip Video Camera Business as Part of Revamp FastCompany Cisco Kills Flip Cam Abandons consumer strategy Comments 0 Trackbacks 0 Permalink Comments Post has no comments Post a Comment Name Website optional Email Address Enter Word Verification in box below Your comment Trackback Link http www itmadesimple com au BlogRetrieve aspx BlogID 5876 PostID 114731 A Trackback Trackbacks Post has no trackbacks Previous Next Recent Posts EdGalaxy com Plagiarist Cyber Smarts Feedback Safer Internet Day A few left links from the left field
