Dufferin-Peel Skilled Trades & Technology Competition
Thursday April 9, 2015
The Philp Pocock community is excited to announce that the Skilled Trades & Technology competition is being hosted at our school for a second year in a row.
Student and teachers parking on the back of the building will still be available; however parking spots across the auto and construction shops will be used for skills competition purposes
Parents and students are asked to access the parking lots and/or drop off students only through the south entrance to the school. The north entrance will be off limits as of 7:00am for the day
A Digital Age
"Life After Digital" examines the end of privacy, cyberbullying, digital revenge and a new generation of facial recognition technologies that effectively turn the face of every social media user into a barcode. Parents and guardians of Pocock students need to be aware of the promise and the perils of the digital technology that students are immersed in. The challenges of privacy in a digital world are taken up more extensively by Glenn Greenwald in the TED talk entitled Why Privacy matters.
Glenn Greenwald was one of the first reporters to see — and write about — the Edward Snowden files, with their revelations about the United States' extensive surveillance of private citizens. In this searing talk, Greenwald makes the case for why you need to care about privacy, even if you’re “not doing anything you need to hide."
