An Argument for Digital Citizenship Education
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Before finishing my morning coffee, two news stories caught my eye as they provide more evidence that digital citizenship education is essential for all, especially the young. The first is a tragic story of a young girl who was targeted on social media, first by cyberbullies and next her vulnerability was exploited, also online, by her alleged killer. The second story is about a celebrity being sued for an offensive meme he shared online of an eight year-old-girl. What do these stories have in common? That what we do online has consequences. And everyone, from the young and innocent to the 'should've known better' could use a lesson or two in the appropriate use of technology. Digital Citizenship is a term used by many in the tech and education industries but needs to become more widely understood by the general public. Digital Citizenship was defined recently at the first ever DigCit Summit as the safe, savvy and ethical use of technology. Some examples below: 1. To use tec ...

Demi Moore Talks Divorce From Bruce Willis, How It Affected Daughters
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
Demi Moore and Bruce Willis seem to be model co-parents: the former couple, who divorced in 1998, appear to have remained chummy with each other -- and even their new spouses -- for the sake of their three girls. But even the best parents can't entirely shield their kids from the effects of divorce. In an emotional new interview that aired on "Dancing With the Stars" Monday night, Moore got candid about the impact the divorce had on the kids, especially Rumer Willis, who's currently competing on the dance show. "When their father and I decided to divorce, it probably had the biggest impact on her," Moore said of Rumer, now 26. The struggle only got worse when Rumer was forced to deal with public scrutiny over her appearance in her teen years, Moore said. "There really wasn't anything I could do to stop it," the "Ghost" actress said. "Her self-esteem was nothing. I could only just keep loving her and loving her until she could love herself." She added: "One of the most ...
