I have a security concern.
Teacher profiles can be accessed by anyone using the web and clicking on their photo.
With a little research, anyone can find out where they work. It seems that most teachers are so trusting that they provide too much info on themselves.
Do you have any thoughts on this?

Hope you are enjoying the current heat wave?... :( I, personally, could go with a few less ticks upward on the outside thermometer!! Anyhoo...
I am planning on returning to school this coming year and would like to get a "blank" laptop/netbook and install all open source software. Do you know where I should start and/or can you point me in the direction I should head to get started? Thanks so much.
Hi Steve! My name is Gisele. I am an educator from Costa Rica. I want to thank you for this opportunity to share and learn from other teachers.
I am trying to decide between a Wiki to set up the information for all my Chemistry classes so my students can access and collaborate or a Ning network.
What is your advice?
Thanks for the welcome message. Yes, This is my second account at Classroom 2.0 but I figured I should create a profile for my new position. Was just about to email you. Likewise, I enjoyed our conversation as well. I will send you an email so we can begin our plan of attack on the series. Have a great 4th!
I'm presenting a workshop on wikis to district staff in August. I see you have a podcast entitled "Wikis--What Are They, and Why Use Them in Education?" from 8/24/06. However, I can't seem to find an active link to the MP3. I'd like to use it during the session. Any help you can give would be much appreciated!
I'm writing to ask if you wouldn't mind helping me circulate a very simple poll that I have created regarding edu-blogging: principally my question is on which blogging platforms are being used and where edu-bloggers are mainly based.
As I teach in Germany as an EL/ESP Teacher my contacts tend to be mainly those in ELT so I would like to widen the scope of answers - my results so far are that 60% of blogging teachers are based in Europe and I'm pretty sure that there are more of you in the US!
Would you be able to forward the poll on to the teachers on here that blog (for other teachers or with their students, perhaps those attending the EduBlogger Unconference event and/or your twitter contacts?
I would be very, very, grateful for your help with this!
I would love to talk about your plans and how the conference might dovetail with our strategic plan relative to collaboration with and support of professional dev. efforts outside of our own organization. Do you Skype?
Thanks Steve for your email. Leon Avrech. I know my book will help new and soon to be new teachers. My book, THINK YOU CAN TEACH? A SURVIVAL GUIDE FOR NEW MIDDLE SCHOOL TEACHERS is help teachers succeed in this important grade level.
Applicable to all grades, however. See: homeclassroomvideo.com then self esteem and you can read more about my book or the publisher at xlibris.com HOME CLASSROOM VIDEO is a business I began in 1988 to bring an excellent teacher in the home. Leon
Understood and thanks for reply. I have offered the software (a single complimentary license) to several schools at no charge including Liz Kolb. Teachers need to get the right software before they can really add value to existing cellphones I suppose. Let me know if I can help you or any educators you know - in this space.
Hi Steve, (RE: student cell phones used in educational settings)
I don't know if I have been approved here yet - I left a comment one day answering a question from another post. Someone posted a response indicating that spammers are not welcome here. Understanding this, I replied that I was not a spammer - instead a technologist that created a SMS text messaging solution for teachers, students and parents to address the posted inquiry. If I can help anyone in K12 or beyond with this solution, please drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. The URL is http://messaging4education.com. Always trying to help - Thanks!
