Mobicip Safe Browser Application
Program gives 185 students iPads by Calum McKinney at DelMarvaNow.com
"Prepared for worries about students using the device to access inappropriate websites, Vonhoff said their iPads come equiped with software to deal with such issues.

'We use a program called Mobicip, so our students don’t use safari browser; they use mobicip as the browser,' he said. 'It allows us to log and monitor Internet use on campus or off. It’s a good tool to help them use the device responsibly.'"


Safe Mobile Browsing with the Mobicip Safe Browser by Jonathan Wylie at SummitSeriesForFamiles.com
"It is relatively easy to set up parent monitoring controls for computers used at home, but what about ones that are used on the go? Mobile internet devices like the iPod Touch and the iPad are great tools for today’s teenagers. However, it can be hard to monitor their usage when children use them away from home. This is where Mobicip’s Safe Browser comes into its own."

October is National Cyber Security Month

Enough is Enough

Enough Is EnoughSM (EIE) recently sent a great reminder for National Cyber Security Month. In 2002, October was named Cyber Security Month and is an annual commemoration of the importance of promoting cyber security and safety. This year's theme is "Our Shared Responsibility." EIE President and CEO, Donna Rice Hughes, helped create a three pronged strategy for Internet safety that involves the public, the technology industry and law enforcement sharing the responsibility to protect children on the Internet (see below.) To get more information and support efforts to protect children online, please go here: https://enough.org/
  
EIE's three-pronged approach of shared responsibility includes:

1. Educating the public, specifically adults about cyber dangers and safety solutions primarily through the media and EIE's Internet Safety 101SM multimedia program resources. The program is the only multimedia program designed to educate, equip and empower caring adults to protect children from pornography, sexual predators and cyberbullies and to keep kids safe and secure on social networking sites, gaming and mobile devices.

2. Encouraging and working alongside the technology industry, including industry giants like Google and Microsoft, to implement viable, family friendly technology solutions and corporate policies and best practices. EIE incorporates cyber security technology solutions into all its Internet Safety 101SM program resources. Additionally, EIE's Internet Safety 101 program is featured as a requisite teaching tool by many of its partners to equip, educate and empower communities with the ability to implement cyber secure practices.

3. Promoting legal solutions that call for aggressive enforcement of existing laws and enactment of new laws to ensure security and safety of children and families. In April, Donna Rice Hughes, was invited as a cyber security expert by the U.S. State Department to educated State Department employees about cyber security and the digital threats kids face, as well as what can be done to prevent cyber crimes against children.         

ABOUT EIE
Enough Is Enough (EIE) a non-partisan, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, emerged in 1994 as the national leader on the front line of efforts to make the Internet safer for children and families.  Since then, EIE has pioneered and led the effort to confront online pornography, sexual predation and other dangers associated with the evolving web with innovative initiatives and effective communications.  EIE's Internet safety 101 Program is a comprehensive, multi-media program that addresses the critical need for parental education and empowerment to protect kids.

Mobicip Supports Back To School Program: Bring Your Own Device

Mobicip Supports BYOD  While many schools are starting Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Initiatives to further classroom education via technology, mobile Internet safety service Mobicip.com reinforces the need to ensure child safety.

Thousand Oaks, CA - Mobicip.com, the leading Internet safety and parental control service for mobile devices like the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, is a key enabler for mobile learning projects in K-12 schools.  While typical mobile learning projects are sponsored by the school, mobile learning is slowly and inexorably moving towards what is called BYOD. Bring Your Own Device is a movement that helps get technology in the classroom in a way that is very affordable for schools (meaning parents or PTAs pitch in) while still being on the cutting edge of educational practices.  Mobicip, an organization dedicated to enabling students to learn on the mobile web, reminds parents of K-12 students during this back to school time that while movements like BYOD can help get technology in classrooms, it is always important to ensure that online safety controls and online content filtering be factored into the equation.  

 “I have heard talk of all students in K-12 schools expected to have BYOD learning devices by 2015”, says Suren Ramasubbu, Founder and CEO of Mobicip.com. “In quite a few instances, the parents or PTA are pitching in and purchasing the technology to empower always-on access to learning.  While this is a creative, fast and affordable way to get technology in the classroom, it is important for these parents and educators to have content filters set up on their kid’s devices to protect the K-12 students using any online or mobile device so that the focus stays on education.”

According to Project Tomorrow’s Learning in the 21st Century: 2011 Trends Update, “Three times as many high school students have access to online learning and twice as many middle school students are learning online, since Speak Up 2007.”  The report continues by stating; “More than 40 percent of students now designate online classes as an essential component of their learning experience. Administrators and parents are increasingly supporting the students’ vision for learning online.”  EdReach, an online platform for passionate, outspoken educators did a recent post about BYOD saying that “While BYOD is far too radical for many school districts at this time, it is inevitable that this is the future.  The sooner districts embrace this future and begin to plan for it, the more effective this transition will be.”

BYOD may not be the success formula to get devices in all classrooms, but the facts do support that online and mobile learning works, so there are stronger efforts to get devices in the classrooms in as many ways as possible.  Project Tomorrow’s Learning in the 21st Century: Taking it Mobile! said in their report that "90 percent of the Mobile Learning Explorer administrators state that mobile computers increase students’ potential for success, as compared to 59 percent of the non-Mobile Learning Explorer administrators." "62 percent of responding parents report that if their child’s school allowed devices to be used for educational purposes, they would likely purchase a mobile device for their child."

The future of education is growing more and more mobile.  BYOD is something back-to-school minded parents and educators may have read about, considered starting or have been in meetings about this already.  Leaders in online safety like Mobicip.com, who are dedicated to enabling online learning, remind deciding parties that mobile kids deserve to safely use and learn on the mobile web and that does involve making sure all devices have content filtering on them to ensure CIPA compliance, eRate eligibility, and to keep the focus on learning.

StartUp Beat Inspiring Interview with Suren Ramasubbu

We are happy to share that StartUpBeat.com featured an inspiring interview with Suren Ramasubbu, titled: Startup Narratives: Suren Ramasubbu, founder and CEO of Mobicip.com.  You can read the full interview here: http://startupbeat.com/sub/2011/08/startup_narratives_suren_ramasubbu_id2452.html and you can also find it on the Mobicip press page.

Our favorite Q and A from the interview was the following:
SUB: What prompted you to start Mobicip in the first place?
Ramasubbu: I still remember that moment vividly. I was watching some kids walk across the street at a traffic light. These middle schoolers were carrying huge backpacks. It was 2005. I felt the backpacks were an anachronism, a throwback to an older era in education and how children learn. I remember feeling strongly that this was going to change. And I wanted to be a part of that change in education, if and when it happens. It was a gut feeling, an intuition, and it was validated at the Mobile 2011 Conference. There is significant change happening today in K-12 education, and it has been labeled “mobile learning”.

From StartUp Beat: "Editor’s Note: This is a new Q&A series from StartUp Beat that features entrepreneurs who have successfully guided their startups (or multiple startups) to maturity. It is meant to complement StartUp Beat’s coverage of early-stage startups and an effort to provide further insight into the experiences of tech entrepreneurs."

Mom! I'm not a kid! Setting Age-Appropriate Internet Rules

Kids learn and grow by pushing boundaries, which is normal and healthy, but Internet safety is one area where we as parents should consider holding the line. In the absence of appropriate parental controls, a few misplaced keystrokes can destroy a child's innocence forever. Installing an Internet filter is just the beginning. Learning how to negotiate online safety and age-appropriate Internet access rules is a major parental challenge. Here are a few Internet safety tips to make it easier.

As a parent and a developer of the Mobicip Safe Browser (a popular Internet content filtering service for the iPod touch, iPhone iPad, Windows 7 and Linux, with extensible parental controls and monitoring), I lead a team that thinks about children’s Internet safety 24/7. After exhaustive research with child development psychologists, high-tech law enforcement officials, Internet safety experts, school IT directors, teachers and parents we have developed mobile Internet safety solutions centered around three content filtering levels:
- The Elementary school level in our kid-friendly browser blocks social networking, gaming, shopping, entertainment, clothing, and news sites/content, in addition to the middle school level restrictions listed below.

- The Middle school level in the Mobicip Safe Browser blocks online shopping, gambling, dating, liquor, and chat sites/content, in addition to the high school level restrictions listed below.

- High school level in the Mobicip Safe Browser is the least restrictive and blocks adult, sexual, weapons, violence, proxy, virus and hacking sites/content.

For parents, these child Internet safety nets are only the beginning. After you've installed the appropriate Internet filters on all the devices your child has access to, then the real debate starts.

The FBI recommends that all computers, whether they are desktops, laptops or handhelds, should have parental controls and filtering installed and should only be accessed by children in a common area within full view of the parents. The Internet is not a babysitter, and children’s time online should be safeguarded with fully robust Internet safety solutions like Mobicip and be strictly limited. You can set time limits with a cooking timer, software, hardware, or a written contract (here's one about cell phone use and here's a great kid computer contract.)

The following time limits are just guidelines, not hard and fast rules. Consider them a starting point for your Internet safety discussions. Obviously every child and situation is unique. There are some children who derive great benefits from extended computer time. If you see your child flourishing with extended computer time, by all means broaden the suggested time limits.

AGE 2-5: Limit time to about 15-20 minutes a day with parental supervision.

Young children (ages 2-5) should play games (whether they are educational or not) only under adult supervision. Even pre-literate children can become addicted to Internet games and simply put, very young kids don't respect technology and might bang it about. Without child Internet safety measures, kids can accidentally open menu items and paint themselves into corners. They will need your help and now is a good time to put on parental controls and establish ground rules about how to respect computers. Don't hit this. Don't lick that. You can only access these web sites via these shortcuts or icons.

AGE 5-9: Limit time to about 30 minutes a day for play with parental supervision.  Allow more time for online schoolwork.

Once your child learns to read, it becomes more important to monitor what they do on the Internet. Now is the time to upgrade online safety and install additional Internet monitoring safeguards such as Mobicip.

If you decide to set up your child's first email account at this time (which might be necessary for many kid sites), use filtered email service providers like Zoobuh, Zilladog, Gaggle, KidseMail, etc.

Once your child has their own email account, now might also be a good time to talk about Internet filters and spam. You need to explain what it is, how you get on spam lists, how to recognize it and why they should never respond to spam. That's the easy discussion.

Here's the hard one - online safety. After a kid gets their own email account, the world can access them. You need to establish whom they communicate with (only people they know in real life) and what information they share. Kids are too trusting of Internet "friends” they meet through gaming sites. As a guideline, the Children's Privacy Protection Act says that by age 13 most kids can understand what they should and shouldn't share online.

Now is a good time to remind them that they should let you know if anyone online makes them feel uncomfortable or threatened. If they tell you about something, don't panic and don't punish the child. They did the right thing by alerting you to a problem with their online safety. You want to keep the lines of communication open between you and your child.

Age 9-12: Limit time to about 45 minutes a day for play with parental supervision.  Allow more time for online schoolwork.

As your tween (age 9-12) grows, you enter the real Internet danger zone. This is when child Internet safety and content filtering will become increasingly important because of all the questionable sites and chat groups out there. This is also the time when your child will begin to chafe at content restrictions and parental controls and want more privacy. They may want to hide their activities from you. They may get computer access at school or friends' homes that lack Internet filters. This when secretly cloning your kid's email account will really pay off.

As they start to register with different web sites, you should emphasize online safety and teach your child how to create a screen name and account information that doesn't reveal personal information such as their age, location, school, etc.

Studies show that the average U.S. kid gets their first cell phone between 9-12. (In the UK, the average age for a kid’s first cell phone is EIGHT.) Always install a mobile, kid-safe content filtering solution like Mobicip. Remember that kids email and text much more than call. (The average U.S. teenager sends 3,339 texts a month.)  Even the most basic cell phone requires mobile Internet safety solutions.

Most cellular providers have an optional package to monitor calls and text messages, limit call times, time of day they’re made and received, and logging the call history. AT&T has the Smart Limits program and Verizon has the Safe Guards program. These services complement Mobicip’s web filtering options.

Age 13-18: Limit time to about 60 minutes a day for play with parental supervision.  Allow more time for online school work.

With powerful computers in every cell phone, it is important to discuss online safety and the dangers of cyberbullying, sexting, online gambling, file sharing and identity theft. At age 13 your kids may still look like kids, but they are living in a very adult world with adult dangers. Empower them by teaching them about it.

Remind them that the Internet is searchable forever, and that sharing an inappropriate joke or photo could cost them dearly in the future. If they don't believe you, show them the latest articles when they search Facebook fired.

Hopefully, by the time they reach 18, your kids have absorbed all the important online safety lessons you’ve shared. They will be aware of potential Internet dangers and able to handle them with confidence.

How Educators are Finding Ways to Mix it Up by MindShift.kqed.org

At Mobicip, we recently read a great article by Frank Catalano, "How Educators are Finding Ways to Mix it Up", published by Tina Barseghian at Mind/Shift.  The  article is full of ways teachers are increasing the use of technology and mobile learning in the classroom. Catalono writes: "It’s clear that digital resources and technology are on the upswing in schools." 

He also shares a great question and concern: "So what should education companies learn from these wildly varying, yet deep, implementations of technology in classrooms? For one, modular—and modifiable—educational content remains a strong need, as evidenced by comments from both students and teachers. It probably comes as no surprise that if these educators aren’t getting resources they can chunk and change from traditional publishers, they’ll turn—and are turning—to free content and Open Educational Resources."

Mobicip content filter is the solution for those teachers and students. Mobicip is the leading Internet safety and parental control service for mobile devices like the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.  Mobicip is now offering a new Windows 7 content filter for parents and educators to ensure their children’s internet safety while browsing the web.

The best-selling Mobicip Safe Browser app has been consistently rated among top paid apps, downloaded and used by tens of thousands of parents and several K-12 schools and school districts in the US, and was recently recognized by the 2010 Parents’ Choice Awards as a Top Mobile App. Mobicip's dynamic content filtering includes a new YouTube filter and Linux content filter for parents and educators to ensure their children’s Internet safety while they are on the web.
