Your email. Your smartphone. Maybe you've got a different one for each — which means you're bound to slip up.<p>Or maybe you use the same one for everything — a security no-no. The number of sites and services that demand a password or PIN seems to have grown exponentially. And keeping track of the ones you've got? Forget about it.<p>Well, Silicon Valley titans are getting tired of them, too.

Top Among Technology Savvy States http://wkms.org/post/tenn-top-among-technology-savvy-states <p>Tennessee has been named as one of the top states in the nation for its efficient use of digital technology in state government. Governor Bill Haslam says the state was among six to receive an A-minus in the 2012 Digital States Survey. The survey is one of the longest running examinations of technology use in state government. Tennessee had scored a B-plus in 2010. This year only Michigan and Utah scored an A. The states are graded on savings or benefits from the use of technology, progress over the last two years, innovation and effective collaboration.

Henderson is Graves County&rsquo;s District Technology Integration Specialist. The BYOD program she&rsquo;s discussing is a simple solution to a common problem. Schools need to keep their educational resources up to date, but lack the money to continually refresh them. Henderson says ideally, they would provide every student with their own computer, but in reality, it&rsquo;s just not feasible.</p> Sun, 05 Aug 2012 14:00:00 +0000 Shelly Baskin 20190 at http://wkms.org Bring Your Own Device to Graves County High School Thieme Speaks at MSU Tech Summit http://wkms.org/post/thieme-speaks-msu-tech-summit <p>In a world of ever growing technology and global interconnectivity, privacy and security are increasingly rare commodities.&nbsp; Richard Thieme is an author and lecturer who addresses the challenges posed by these new technologies, including the personal, and even spiritual transformations people undergo as they adapt to a new world.&nbsp; He spoke this week at a technology summit at Murray State University.&nbsp; Gary Pitts sat down with him to talk about the dangers of interacting with technology, and how to meet those challenges.</p> Fri, 13 Apr 2012 21:18:44 +0000 Gary Pitts 17634 at http://wkms.org
