Web 2.0 Concerns Security Who will be able to view the website? Look for tools that provide the option to create public, private, or protected projects. How much personal information of the students will be displayed on the World Wide Web? ▪ Know COPPA Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ▪ Develop usernames that provide no personal information. What types of outside content such as advertisements and other material will students are exposed too? Look for advertisement free or limited ad resources. Integrity How much control will I have as the teacher? Can I set limits (permissions) on who edits and what they edit? Many tools allow administrators to set user permissions and control what can be edited. Will I have the ability to trace or track edits? Look for this feature when signing up. It is available with many host sites. How soon will I know if changes have been made or comments added? Certain host sites will provide the administrator with an of changes when they occur. My students don’t have accounts. Some sites allow you to add users without for free. Some require pay accounts. Can counterfeit s be used?Some sites allow counterfeit address.
