Social media platforms like #TikTok and #Instagram Reels have brought light-hearted fun into our lives, but we must acknowledge the darker side. Accounts disguised as legitimate platforms can prey on vulnerable children, raising concerns about their safety. #OnlineExploitation
The illusion of a #falsenarrative is prevalent on these platforms. Influencers project an idealized version of their lives, emphasizing glamorous experiences and seemingly perfect relationships. This content distorts reality, setting unrealistic standards for viewers.
Children, in particular, are tempted to imitate what they see online. They observe couples having fun, driving, holidaying, and engaging in activities they may not fully comprehend. This desire to replicate can lead to a dangerous vulnerability to online predators. #OnlineSafety

THREAD “#Cottarelli sarà una punta di diamante della nostra campagna, capolista del PD che vuol far tornare la fiducia nella politica”: così @enricoletta. Ma @CottarelliCPI è davvero una “punta di diamante”? Rispolveriamo un #factchecking del 2020. 1/n

18.6.2020: @CottarelliCPI addita incompetenza digitale degli insegnanti italiani, citando “#OcsePisa”: “Italia è al 72° posto (su 79) per le competenze tecnico-digitali degli insegnanti”. Un tweet apparentemente basato su dati certificati … 2/N

Ma la “competenza” è solo apparente: solo chi frequenta i social network alla maniera di #Napalm51, compulsando Google e condividendo link senza averli letti, poteva dare credito alla classifica #OCSE. 3/N…

It's really cool to see how youth on Discord are now using "peer moderators" and their own discord servers to police unwanted behaviour. A great example of how youth are taking agency over their onlife world! #digitalliteracy #socialemediasafety
2/ what is really cool is to see how specific communities will create their own "community standards" to meet their needs and to make their participants feel more comfortable and safer!
3/ I have been following a streamer whose community is LGBTQ2+ on Twitch & Discord, & it has been such a great learning opportunity to watch how their growth specific to community standards & code of conduct have morphed to meet the needs of their community.

#InfrastructureWeek has arrived!

This #Infrastructure bill is about more than money.

It is also a bold commitment to universal broadband that we should recognize and celebrate.…

1/16...Far too often I find that many adults like to focus on the negatives surrounding social media/technology and our kids. We like to celebrate and recognize the positives. In this spirit, I offer the following examples: #parents #digitalliteracy #socialmediasafety #STEAM
What about this teen who developed this App to help students manage their homework

After a quick photo op with the @DSP_SPE #scipol #NextGenCanSci #dreamteam, I'm attending the #CSPC2018 panel @sciencepolicy on the social implications of emerging technologies w/ @ideas_idees @SocMedDr @emmeslin @Scienceadvice
Discussion questions for 2-way Q&A at the emerging technologies panel #cspc2018 ⬇️
Directions: There are some questions that are easy to answer, others that are more important that are harder to answer (@emmeslin). The social implications of new tech, esp if algorithms can exponentially increase biases and misinformation, are the latter (@SocMedDr) #CSPC2018

Now up: Zachary Brown, Lead Data Scientist at S&P Global on #DataScience and #OpenEducation for the enterprise. Dayjob: #AI, Sidehustle: building #digital skills using #opensource #ODSCWest @School_GC
#DigitalLiteracy - Why? Effective work today requires a lot of associated learning. @linuxfoundation @github #VersionControl #Visualization -- continuous learning is critical. Optimal tools & processes are probably not the ones you are using now (Matlab vs. Scikit-Learn)
Need an evolving understanding for what tools are available today to get your work done. If you want your business people to work with your #datascience team, they need to understand what data is and what it can do. Also helps to avoid chasing buzzwords and bling.

Orientation session at #APrIGF2018, #VintCerf: Internet is not useful if it doesn't work. Resilience is an imp. aspect of the Internet. As the global warming continues, water rise continues there rises concerns for cable landings. #internetsociety
#VintCerf continues to discuss fragile aspects of digital content. He asks the audience if the data they store in whichever form, cloud/hard disk. Will it continue to exist at the same place after 50years? #APrIGF2018
#VintCerf cites an example of how with technological advancement his floppy disks have been rendered useless. And in this light, he urges the tech community to take care of how and where we document our content. #APrIGF2018
