Like moths to a flame, curious and tech-savvy students have always pushed the limits of what educators deem ‘acceptable use’ of school technology. This is in no way a new phenomenon. We provide them with access to powerful, general-purpose computing devices, access to the internet, and time—and at younger and younger ages. They explore, tinker, make, express themselves, push back, pursue their interests, and act out. What’s different in recent years is that in doing the unexpected with school technology, students can affect not just their own education and that of their classmates, but the operations of entire school districts (and even far beyond). Schools and edtech vendors take (some) steps to secure their systems and limit student access to the more powerful administrative features of school technology devices and systems, but time and again and again students demonstrate their ability to circumvent these controls. When students break school rules related to … [Read more...] about When 12-Year-Olds Can Breach School IT Systems, Who’s Responsible?
Grants 12 year old whisky review
A record-breaking 12-year-old has been named the tallest girl in the world and towers over her mum and dad already. Sophie Hollins is 6'2" and can touch the ceilings at her Southampton home and is roughly 18 inches taller than most of her classmates. Guinness World Records reckon that 12-year-old Sophie is the world's tallest pre-teen. She said: “I’ve always known I was different. I’ve been tallest in my class from day one.” And while Sophie sometimes enjoys her unusual height, she adds that she will be delighted if a recent procedure to stunt her growth is successful. Sophie was diagnosed with Marfan syndrome at eight months and looks down on her 5'10" dad Ian, 5'4" mum Lorraine, both 44, and her 4'7" brother Aaron, 10. The life-threatening genetic disorder affects the body’s connective tissues causing organ problems or leading to extreme height. At six years old Sophie was 4'10", four years later she was 5'11" and doctors have attempted to curb her surge … [Read more...] about Record-breaking 12-year-old is the tallest girl in the world

In an incident reminiscent of a “Home Alone” sequel, a 12-year-old boy in Australia ran away from home last month after an argument with his mother — and flew to Bali by himself, using his parents’ credit card. Once on the Indonesian island, nearly 3,000 miles away from his home in Sydney, the child managed to check into a room at a beachside resort, where he stayed for four days. There, he reportedly drank a beer, enjoyed the hotel pool and at least once flaunted his solo adventure on … [Read more...] about A 12-year-old in Australia had a fight with his mom and ran away — to a resort in Bali
The Hart-family SUV crash has officially claimed six lives, with officials confirming Tuesday that a body pulled from the Pacific Ocean last week was that of 12-year-old Ciera Hart, one of the three children who were reported missing after the fatal crash. According to the Associated Press, the coroner’s office said that DNA analysis was used to confirm the little girl’s identity. Toxicology results are pending. Following the crash, Sarah and Jennifer Hart and three of their adopted children—19-year-old Markis Hart, 14-year-old Jeremiah Hart, and 14-year-old Abigail Hart—were confirmed dead, with three more of their adopted children—15-year-old Devonte Hart, 16-year-old Hannah Hart and Ciera (although previously identified as Sierra Hart, authorities say Ciera was the 12-year-old’s legal name)—reported missing. Devonte and Hannah are still missing and feared dead. Toxicology reports on the first five family members revealed that Jennifer Hart, … [Read more...] about Body Pulled Out of Ocean Identified as 12-Year-Old Ciera Hart
A mum and dad have been jailed for repeatedly raping their own 12-year-old daughter, after the evil mother told police: "Better us than some maniac". The couple forced their child to endure 'threesomes', and the young girl was tortured with a sex toy in a case which has shocked Russia. Sick mother Olga Ashaev was sent to a penal colony for 15 years, while her husband Dmitry was sentenced to 17 years. The perverted parents claimed they were training their daughter for adult life. Oksana Cheredina, senior assistant to the state prosecutor in Volgograd, said: “It was proved in court that parents had sexual orgies with the schoolgirl from December 2016 to March 2017. “The girl did not tell anyone what was happening [because] she was afraid of the reaction of her father and mother.” The couple were “stripped of their parental rights”, and the child - now 13 - is undergoing rehabilitation more than a year after her appalling ordeal. She was put into care when … [Read more...] about Evil parents jailed for raping their own 12 year old girl
