Cyber-Security And Privacy Knowledge As Skills In The 21st Century Are NOT Yet Enough Taught And Present, WHY!?

.

userfredericmoser01Did YOU realize already that WE are living in the 21st Century and that WE nearly ALL are using the so called NEW TECHNOLOGIES, the internet, the smartphone(s), laptops, computerstablets, household goods who are connected to the internet, and this on a daily base!? Did YOU ever started THINKING about such consequences concerning YOUR Privacy and vulnerability to Cyber-Security!? As far as I know, from practice while talking to people, most people are NOT as nobody has given them advice, NOR were they taught about it in schools, and there is the problem!

In the digital age, as WE are living NOW in it, WE MUST learn on a daily base to adapt to its very quick change! Education can’t follow with that as it is and was almost years behind… It needs to have a ===> RETHINK <=== to catch up!

SO… By knowing this and accepting it ALSO (the most difficult, BUT…) WE would be good advised for learning on a daily base to get the MOST out of necessary knowledge and skills to give OUR kids the BEST Education possible, an ===> Up-To-Date <=== knowledge, a knowledge who isn’t ONLY a cherry-picked knowledge, BUT a knowledge who includes ALSO Privacy and Cyber-Security as also skills!

The future is also that any device, even in the household, will be connected to the internet. It is called “The Internet Of Things” and as with any NEW technical stuff, it brings risks and vulnerabilities

MOST of people don’t realize the importance of privacy, especially for Cyber-Security and Identity Theft, check the video below who explains very good, please.

After watching the video YOU certainly are surprised and hopefully also willing to learn a bit more, it is actually NOT that difficult as most people think.


Who’s To Blame For Cyber-Security problems!?

Surveys from professional companies are NOW ALSO showing that Cyber-Security is OUR ALL responsibility, check below, please…

#Naivety in the Digital Age? http://wp.me/p20Rwv-u4

Do YOU realize WHAT’s happening in the #VirtualWorld!? #EdChat

.

Like in #RealWorld YOU need #1stAidKit & #Safety WHEN using tools, SO ALSO in #VirtualWorld! #EdTechChat #InternetSafety #CyberSecurity 1/2

.

2/2 Using tools in #VirtualWorld WE need ALSO #1stAidKit which is #Protection #Antivirus as well as #InternetSafety #knowledge! #EdTechChat

.

By analogy, anyone who selects only the data that appeals to them and supports their personal view or theory is called a cherry picker. SO… WHEN using #BYOD #EdTech tools #iWHATEVER #Apps ===> #LEARNing & #TEACHing about #CyberSecurity & #Privacy is a MUST! <===

.

NEW #Technology gives YOU the possibility 2 SHOW UP as… BUT its a dreaming world! DON’T loose the #REALITY ;) Do YOU got #Maturity!??? InternetSafety existing but NOT for adults, seniors… MUST get updated and created .

.

.

That’s WHAT #Teachers #EDUcators are today, DON’T see #REALITY ===> The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance. -Aristotle <=== #EDUcators .

.

WHEN #Researchers #EDUcators #TEACHers are relating #CyberSecurity to #software ===> #BackToSchool with THEM!

.

Please #Update YOUR #knowledge WE need 2 #RETHINK how WE are using #ICT #Technology #EdTech #iWHATEVER #Apps as WE do it unconsciously MOSTLY without #Responsibility#EDU

.

WE MUST #RETHINK #HowTo use #ICT #Technology #EdTech #iWHATEVER #Apps as WE use unconsciously MOSTLY without #Responsibility#CyberSecurity

.

WE have to prepare OUR children a safe internet… #EDUcation SHOULD lead learners 4 the #FUTURE, BUT actionnaly is a #Century behind, especially its #LEADERS ===> #LeaderShip #CyberSecurity

.

Remember these words ===> #Responsibility & #NotYET <== as a guide 2 GO a step FURTHER as #preparation 4 THE #FUTURE of OUR #Kids ;)
