iSheriff's Education 3.0 Paper Educates on EdTech Push

In an attempt to make the transition to EdTech seamless and less of a headache for teachers, students, and parents, iSheriff has prepared a new paper titled, “Is Your School Ready for Education 3.0?” In the paper, one can find key terminology, as well as detailed outlines of tools and software to help prepare schools for the “explosion in technology.”

“Education 3.0 is an all-encompassing term for how new technologies, such as cloud computing, online video, and mobile devices are changing the way educators teach and students learn,” according to a recent release.

The paper will include information such as the 10 disruptive innovations in Education 3.0, which explains how to keep students safe in a space that does contain certain risks and security issues.

“Education 3.0, like other technology-driven changes from e-commerce to social networking, has powerful benefits, but also new concerns,” according to the release.

“It has a great capacity to engage and inspire students but many educators and parents are concerned about the cyber security risks associated with the interconnectivity of Education 3.0, which are quite real and require a proactive approach to protect students, schools and universities.”

There are definitely new potential dangers for students in the Education 3.0 phase, making it imperative that administrators, educators, and students are well-aware of the threats they might encounter with new technologies. Prevention is much better that running into an issue and not having a strategy to address it.

"Education 3.0 will offer new ways of teaching and learning that will transform our educational systems.  However, a successful transition requires the continual review of policy on proper conduct on connected devices, as well as the creation of proper cyber security infrastructure to protect information, block offensive material and stop bad actors," said John Mutch, iSheriff CEO. 

"Keeping our students safe in today's learning environment is our most important task."

It’s a much-needed discussion, and the report could be a great guide for schools looking to expand upon their community education programs on the different tools being introduced into the classrooms.
