Where is it and How can it help?
There is an abundance of differing opinions of when technology should be introduced to children. No one has a truly definitive answer but there is no denying our children need to learn the ins and out of technology. The technology market is expected to reach $3-trillion this year and our educators along with the help of parents, have a duty to prepare today's youth for the ever-changing future of the workplace. Graduation rates are at an all-time high of 83% but, only 38% of students are college-ready! How can technology assist with today's learning and not distract the students from the necessities of the classroom? With the help of three outstanding foundations: The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, The Michael and Susan Dell Foundation and EDUCAUSE , the educational authorities now have a set of pillars to help design "personalized learning" for every student to help prepare them for the future and technology is a vital component of helping make this happen.
HIPPA, which stands for, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act was put in to place in 1996 and was originated then to increase the portability of health insurance. Today, we live in a much different world and these guidelines and regulations have morphed the purpose to reduce fraud and simplify administration. Not only do health care professionals and their entities have to comply with these regulations but, business associates of health care professions must also be compliant. The penalties for these individuals are not just a slap on the wrist in fact, it can be up to $50,000/per regulation and up to $1.5million per year. So as you can see, the regulations should not be taken lightly.
