In the first part of this series of posts looking at how we are preparing students for life in this technology filled world, I discussed the currently offered e-safety programmes provided in schools.    I also raised the issue of how we are increasingly making use of more and more internet connected devices in our homes, or the Internet of Things (IoT).   You can read the first post here.  In this posting I intend to cover the implications of big data and ethics.   I believe each of these topics merits inclusion in our discussion and teaching in preparing students for life in this increasingly technological and digital world.
