1 Digital Citizenship Having available access to the Internet and digital resources means you have responsibilities in the digital world. Throughout the year, you’ll learn more about digital citizenship and what it means to be a responsible Internet user. These topics matter to you today: Creating Passwords and Keeping them Secure Responsible Online Activity Resources on StudentNet for Citing Others’ Work Digital Citizenship Slide 1 of 6

2 Create a Strong Password Be creative when crafting a password Individualize “vanity” passwords to fit you but aren’t easy for others to figure out il0v2r3ad is one example that translates to “I love to read” Use song lyrics, sayings, or other phrases to create an acronym “The Fault in Our Stars is the best book.” can become tFiOSitBB as a password.

3 Keep your password safe It’s important to keep your password safe, not just to make it strong. Do not share your password with anyone except your parents (not your best friend, boyfriend/girlfriend, brother/sister – parents only). Do not write your password down and stick it in a safe place or save it to your computer or in your cell phone. Remember it! Do not login to a computer and then let someone else use it. You will be held responsible for anything another person does when you are logged in. Do not leave your computer unattended while logged in. Log out if you have to leave your Tablet PC. Digital Citizenship Slide 3 of 6

4 Be responsible online Digital Citizenship Slide 4 of 6 Everything you post or do online has value or use to someone. In some ways, that’s helpful: Ads that are targeted to your interests Ideas for products to design Communication through social media But information can be used in negative, sometimes criminal ways: By someone who wants to embarrass or bully you By plagiarists who want to claim your content as their own By companies who want to use your information in ways that affect you negatively

5 Be responsible online Universities and colleges may not accept you. Companies may reject your job application or find reasons to fire you. Criminals build profiles of people to scam identities, hack, steal property, physically harm others, and more. Insurance companies use information posted online in blogs, Facebook, Instagram, etc. to deny coverage of medical and auto claims. Be aware of the use and value that your online presence and actions have for others and act with them in mind. Be responsible online. Digital Citizenship Slide 5 of 6

6 Responsible use includes academic integrity Easy access to resources makes it easy to create better products than you can sometimes do on your own. While using others’ resources makes your work better, be sure to credit your sources. Citation Generators on StudentNet make it easier to cite sources. Online Resources available on StudentNet and the campus library website often provide citations for you in copy – paste format. Digital Citizenship Slide 6 of 6
