Reinventing Paper: ePaper and eBooks

This chapter explains about being a digital citizenship champion and highlights in different colors, note school policies on privacy, personal information, and photography. A vital area of privacy is the student's username and password. Schools that create simple usernames and have the same password for every student are setting the students up to 'frame' each other. Students who sign in as another student are stealing that person's identity. Use the great lesson plans from Common Sense Media about the difference between personal and private information. Photo release forms should be added to school permission forms. Some annuals are posting photos online that didn't make the printed version. Facial recognition software used by Facebook and Google Picasa means that you may not have to put a name with a face in order for your child to be recognized. Copyright is a tough issue with two sides, claiming ownership and getting permission.
