Our rapidly increasing technology including a global network has allowed educators the opportunity to create, communicate, and store information in incredible ways. Students have access to instant information. Classes can learn with peers who live on the other side of the globe. School systems can store and access information on students, staff, and operational issues with ease.
In addition, many schools/districts are being rewarded grants that allow for the purchase of technology tools to which they otherwise would never have had financial access. Entire districts are being set up with laptops, LCD projectors, and other tech tools including staff training and mentoring for Classrooms for the Future grants. Here is a link that provides information on Classrooms for the Future
Unfortunately, with all of this wonderful technology available, there are several security concerns that arise. It is our duty as school staff members and parents to work together to keep our children safe while using these technology tools. Here is an incomplete list of security issues brought on by technology integration:
Because of these issues listed above (and more), there is a need to train our staff and students in the area of security awareness. There are important steps for all members of an organization to take in order to keep our school community and network system safe.
