  • 100+ Online Resources That Are Transforming Education – With so many startups on the scene, it is easy to get lost. Fortunately, most innovation is centered around a short list of fundamental ideas. In this post, we’ll walk through nine clusters of education tech companies.

Privacy and Personal Information

Students need to learn about Privacy and Personal Information as they apply to computers and society – from the notes, readings and assignments. Are they aware of computers around them and how computers affecting society? Although access to information within the course management system class is limited to enrolled students, students need to understand that sharing personal information must be considered carefully.

Asking students to post information and work outside the course management system is may be discouraged for privacy reasons. However, with adequate preparation and follow-up, publishing to the web is an exciting and rewarding experience for students to take pride in their work.

Model behavior

Many students understand requirements best if they see an appropriate model. Often, the students who post first to a discussion are good, outgoing, confident students and their postings provide a good model for other students to follow. Requiring students to post their assignment answers in a discussion forum helps weaker students understand how to do the work and prepare their own submission. This works well for weekly research questions, and issue analysis discussions.
