Participation is free. First-come-first-served basis. Pre-registration system.
According to the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology’s “FY2020. Survey on Problems in Student Guidance such as Problematic Behavior and School education Refusal of Children” (October 13, 2021), “By using a personal computer or mobile phone, etc.” In 2014, there were 7,898 cases of cyber-bullying such as “accusation, injuries, and unpleasant things”, but in 2020, it was 18,870, the highest number ever. In addition, as the school concept progresses, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology said, “It is safe to clarify the rules for using terminals, to have a common understanding with children, and to make settings so that teachers can check the writings of children and students. And it is important to be able to use the terminal effectively. ”
Against this background, Digital Arts, an information security maker, will explain at the seminar the creation of rules for using the Internet to solve problems at school sites and the measures taken in “i-FILTER (school version)” with demonstrations. .. In addition, we will explain in detail the anti-bullying function “Watching Filter”, which was newly upgraded in November 2021.
Board of Education releases school terminal
On January 24, 2022, Digital Arts, an information security maker, used the Web security product “i-FILTER” Ver.10 as a security measure for each terminal in the school concept of the Shibuya Ward Board of Education, Tokyo. The case study was released.
Shibuya-ku, Tokyo is a municipality that distributed LTE-compatible tablet terminals to children and students in municipal elementary and junior high schools in September 2017, and was the first municipality in Japan to realize “one-by-one terminals.” In response to the spread of the new coronavirus infection on the terminals introduced in 2017, Teams was introduced to enable interactive lessons. Even during the closed school period, we tried to utilize the terminal in the form of online learning.
However, while there are various advantages to using terminals, problems such as troubles such as inappropriate sites and cyber-bullying have also emerged. Therefore, in Shibuya Ward, the social bookmarking category is not blocked during class hours, but it is blocked outside class hours, and fine-tuning is performed. In addition, by filtering so that video sites cannot be seen, prohibiting SNS by filtering, and utilizing the “timetable function”, the Internet usage time of children and students is restricted, and the Internet can be used for a long time. Is prevente.
Wi-Fi environment at home to connect to the Internet
In addition, Shibuya Ward has a close LTE system and uses terminals for take-out learning. Closed LTE allows children and students who do not have a Wi-Fi environment at home to connect to the Internet. Mr. Takuo Yamazaki, Education ICT Policy Section, Education system Policy Division, Shibuya Ward Board of Education, said, “The goal was for everyone to take it home and study anytime, anywhere. Shibuya Ward assumes that everyone can use the Internet. ”
In Shibuya Ward, all schools in the ward are also conducting take-out learning for tablet terminals. We set the usage time zone and apply strict filtering outside the usage time. But the sites necessary for learning are registere in the black exclusion list of “i-FILTER”. So that they can always be use, and the black exclusion list Is unify in the ward.
Teachers also take out terminals. Using the same terminal for both school affairs and learning has led to work style reforms. Regarding the use of terminals, we plan to increase the degree of freedom in using terminals by fine-tuning while protecting the minimum parts that must be protecte, such as access to dangerous sites.
