Digital citizenship project[1]

  1. 1. Leah Lack Debbie Austin Amber Frasco
  2. 2. What is Digital Crime/Security? Here are some Examples:  Internet safety procedures for the classroom and home  AUP (Acceptable Use Policy) in the classroom  Computer Hacking  Use of Security Software for protection
  3. 3. While at school or home a child may wonder on to sites that are not appropriate for their age which ultimately can lead to their safety being put in jeopardy. Without being aware a child can enter a site that contains inappropriate material or sexual predators. In one survey research claims that “58% of students admit to using the Internet unsafely, inappropriately, or illegally.” (Feldman, 2007)
  4. 4. Fortunately there are several tools available for schools and parents that can prevent a child from wondering to such sites.  Educate- No matter how much protection is provided on a computer there is no way to block all unsuitable information.  Apply the “Don’t talk to strangers” motto while the online.  Time limits on the computer  Enforce punishments for when computer rules are broken All information provided by Feldman, 2007. • Monitoring Software- At any time a report can be printed out to show exactly what sites have been visited and when. •Personalize programs to require each student to enter their own password to ensure individual responsibility. •Filters- Stops students from entering sites that may contain inappropriate material. •Keep the computer in an area that can easily be monitored.
  5. 5. Computers are in use in classrooms across the country and it has become imperative that schools protect themselves from user liability.
  6. 6. Enforcing Acceptable User Policies How schools can enforce the AUP  If an AUP states that all users’ activities will be monitored, then the school IT staff needs to be sure that it is doing just that. Maintain an Internet log. Update regularly and employ the use of filters to block unacceptable content.  Use clear and precise language: be sure to carefully list all circumstances in which a violation may occur and avoid generalities.  Explain the AUP to students in an open discussion forum, how to use the Internet effectively, and involve parents in their child’s computer usage.

  7. 7. Computer Hacking Definition Prevention  Intentionally accessing a computer without authorization or exceeding authorization in order to access restricted information  The unauthorized use of computer and network resources  Privacy infringement  Varies from being an annoyance to being illegal *All information provided by Coakley, 2010.  The best way to prevent hacking is the use of security software  Use secure passwords and keep them private  Be aware of your digital environment  Explain to students and others the repercussions and illegal nature of hacking
