Each week that a Packback submission is due you should:
- submit your own original question and
- submit a response to TWO other questions posed that week by your classmates
Try to make your submissions achieve a curiosity score of at least an 80 out of a 100. Here are a few things to ensure that you reach 80:
- Don’t have spelling errors
- Use paragraph breaks (and don’t type one long 350 word paragraph)
- Include a link to an external source
- Add a description (where you insert your text)
Week 1: Write a question about any computing or management topic that interests you. Respond to two questions posted by your classmates. (The purpose of this week’s assignment is mainly to get you comfortable with the Packback system.)
Classmates Post to respond:
How should management teams handle post Covid workforce?
There is no question that Covid-19 changed how the majority of workforce will operate forever. Companies requiring employees onsite like health and industry have adopted more health safety practices to reassure their employees, while other companies have adopted a more virtual work life. As we approach year one of the Covid-19 pandemic, how will management teams begin planning for post Covid workforce. Will they adopt a permanent hybrid/virtual work schedule or will they send employees back to the office? How will the plan for office reentry if they decide to go back to 100 percent? How will the ensure their employees health and safety upon reentry?
What security issues have you faced with IoT devices?
More and more, IoT devices are making their way into our daily lives. Amazon’s Alexa and the Google Assistant are interactive devices, while Apple “AirTags”, Tile squares, and similar devices constantly report data about us to their corporate handlers.
These devices and the data they collect are beneficial, at least in some way. Alexa can control the lights and thermostat, while the Tile square attached to the car keys helps prevent morning panic.
Most tools have a dark side, however. Some can be easily manipulated; turning off someone’s lights may be comical. Setting an early-morning alarm isn’t quite so funny.
Location tracking is of great concern to many. Location tags place individuals into a dangerous situation when used by a stalker to maintain an up-to-the-moment location of a target. (https://9to5mac.com/2021/05/06/airtag-stalking/).
