75 Ethical and Fair Use of Technology Some people in society challenge the boundaries of fair use, ethics, and courteousness, due to the lack of the existence of a socially accepted, clear code of etiquette in the use of technological tools. TED expects that, in the classroom and field sites, students will use technology in appropriate ways.
