Be polite when you are sending messages to people. Treat other people the way you would like to be treated. Think before you hit the “send” command. The things you text or email could hurt someone.
If someone forgets to log out, log out for them. Leave other people’s files alone. Treat other people the way you would like to be treated.
Be careful to “log out” of sites you have signed into. Be a good Cyber Citizen: If someone forgets to log out, log out for them.
Illegal gambling and fraud are examples of using a computer to steal. Using your computer as place to store illegal or stolen information is wrong. Using email or texting to plan crimes is wrong.
“False witness” means telling lies about people. Be considerate of other people’s feelings. Don’t spread rumors.
“Software” is a term for computer programs. Software allows you to do things on the computer. Examples are video games, media players like iTunes, and word processing programs like MS Word. “Open source” and “shareware” are free and OK to use.
“Authorization” means permission. “Computer resources” are people’s hardware (the computer) and software (the programs). If it’s not yours, ASK first.
“Intellectual output” can be books, artwork, music, films, magazine articles, video games. “Appropriate” means copying other people’s work and passing it off as your own. If you do use someone else’s work, cite your source. My sources for this lesson are cited at the very end of this slide show.
If you create a computer program that helps others steal or do anything against the law, you have done wrong. Hacking is wrong. Examples of hacking are shutting down or defacing web sites and creating and sending viruses.
The computer is a wonderful tool. There are lots of positive ways to use a computer. Can you think of some?
