Ethics

The video below is a classic.  I think that it’s the type of video that needs to be incorporated into any class that’s talking about computer ethics and the ethical use of computers.  It’s just so basic.  I’ve got to believe that, inwardly, Leo just has to be ready to burst out laughing…

I just did a quick scan through the new Computer Studies Curriculum and could see all kinds of places where I could use this video to address expectations.  I just did a simple search for “ethical” and easily came up with this collection.

  • describe legal and ethical issues related to the use of computers (e.g., music and video file downloading, spyware, identity theft, phishing, keystroke logging, packet sniffing, cyberbullying);
  • describe safeguards (e.g., effective passwords, secure websites, firewalls, biometric data) for preventing the unethical use of computers.
  • investigate and analyse an ethical issue related to the use of computers (e.g., sharing passwords, music and video file downloading, software piracy, keystroke logging, phishing, cyberbullying);
  • outline and apply strategies to encourage ethical computing practices at home, at school, and at work.
  • outline and apply strategies to encourage ethical computing practices at home, at school,  and at work.

  1. Leo is great… Tech Guy is a good show but Macbreak weekly is one of my favorite podcasts.
