                                   Research and Outreach

Dear Participants:

Educational Technology Policy, Research and Outreach (ETPRO) takes great
pleasure in hosting in partnership with the University Libraries the eighth annual
Cyberethics, Cybersafety, Cybersecurity (C3™) Conference. The core mission of
the C3 Conference is to inform the educational community about the ethical,
legal, safety, and security implications of technology use. Convening
stakeholders who share common goals and providing new knowledge and
materials to help them promote the Cyberawarness mission is a core value of the
C3 Conference.

We are particularly thankful for support from the National Science Foundation,
the CyberWatch Center, and the National Cyber Security Alliance.

While our primarily goal is to provide a forum for participants to learn and share,
another goal is to raise the national consciousness of current and needed
awareness training and research in the areas of Cyberawareness that impact
educators and students. Our speakers discuss the complexities of Cyberethics,
Cybersafety and Cybersecurity and the increasing intricate ways the three
intersect. The conference audience consists of a variety of teachers,
administrators, Department of Education personnel, library/media and technology
coordinators, and law enforcement, as well as a wide variety of local University
faculty, staff and students from various disciplines: computer science,
engineering, education, counseling, business, library science and criminal justice.
The audience is as diverse and complex as the C3 topics themselves.

At the closure of the conference, we hope that each participant has left with new
knowledge and insights into the vast resources that will help move this important
initiative forward. We also hope participants will continue to take part in other
events scheduled throughout the month of October. You can view some of these
activities in this program and online. We look forward to seeing you again on
October 7-8, 2010.

Dear Participants:

It is my privilege to welcome you to the eighth annual Cyberethics, Cybersafety,
& Cybersecurity Conference. The University of Maryland Libraries is proud to
co-sponsor this year’s conference, which addresses the important issue of
academic integrity.

While technology has had a very positive effect on the educational community, it
also has raised new issues that must be addressed. Academic dishonesty and
copyright infringement are just two of the areas having an effect on K-12,
colleges and universities. The C3 conference fits the University of Maryland
Libraries’ mission to provide education in the use of scholarly information

On behalf of the University Libraries, I welcome you to this timely and important

Need help finding materials and resources and understanding the latest topics and concerns?
This session will discuss everything from evaluating web sites and citing sources to hot
safety topics including sexting and cyberbullying to the latest focus on security issues.
Digital Literacy spans a broad spectrum of topics. Classroom curricula are already packed,
and the demands on teachers' time preclude them from developing and including stand alone
ethics, safety, and security units in their classroom. A stellar cast will share how to combine
available C3 content into existing curricula and lessons. Classroom examples will be shared.
