Do You Still Think There Is 'Privacy' in the Social Media Sites?

"Privacy settings are a joke," writes Maggie Cary commenting on the all time surveyed privacy in Facebook, and all other social media sites. Whatever you post online assume it is public and treat it as such.

"Anything you think is private can be copied, pasted, and shared with the world. Yeah, I am seriously suggesting that you don’t trust any system on the Internet or the people with whom you are communicating with to keep your words or photos private," Cary states.

But what is important not to savvy internet users only but most of social networks newcomers is the list of DON'Ts recommended by Liza Wiemer and cited by Cary.

The Impact of Spanish-only Preschool Classes on Young Latinos

Esther J. Cepeda:

Hold your breath for Latino members of the Illinois high school class of 2026. Who knows what recent changes in how they are to be taught will do for them.

Or to them.

New rules requiring pre-school English Language Learners (ELLs) to be educated according to the same standards as for kindergarten through 12th grade ELLs were adopted last month by the Illinois State Board of Education. The rules, which are expected to sail through the final legislative process in time for the 2010-2011 school year, will make Illinois the most prescriptive state in the union for identifying and educating English Language Learners.

Who Are You, What Are You Doing and Why Do You Keep Looking at Me?

If you are familiar with memes you already know what all this is about. If not, let me quickly tell you that what memes look for is engage readers and make your readership grow. And that is precisely what we need right now. Since we switched web address, I am pretty sure many got lost and some others don't even know we do exist.

I read hundreds of feeds and tonight I found Prof-like and Acadamnit. They both pledge to the meme started two years ago by Ed Yong.

"Tell me about you. Who are you? Do you have a background in science? If so, what draws you here as opposed to meatier, more academic fare? And if not, what brought you here and why have you stayed? Let loose with those comments." - Acadamnit.

Teachers Who Changed the World

This is a list of the 10 Teachers Who Changed the World, no the traditional ones but those who change not only students and their lives. These people are historic personalities who served their time and excel what they knew most.

We live in a period, where every person who call himself an educator, should think and reflect on every one of this historic figures: Confucius, Socrates, Albert Einstein, Friedrich Fröbel and more.

The introduction of the original post begins saying:

    There isn’t a person among us who hasn’t had their lives touched by a particular teacher. Teachers inspire us and help us realize our full potential. They help us to reach our goals, whether these goals are personal, professional or academic. Throughout history, teachers have improved our quality of lives through education and have done so without the need for praise or personal recognition. It is their dedication and hard work that improved the lives of their students and enriched the community in which they lived and worked.

How many of us are the dedicated and hard workers teachers which this introduction tries to highlight?
