+ The 9 Digital Elements By: Kathryn Rieb
+ Digital Commerce Electronic buying and selling of goods. These days, many people use certain sites on the Internet to buy, sell or rent things (e.g. eBay, Amazon, airbnb, etc) and while some of these sites are legal, others conflict with the law. Users need to know which is which, and make responsible decisions when using the sites.
+ Digital Literacy Process of teaching and learning about technology and the use of technology. Much progress has been made over the years in teaching and learning digitally. In some cases, the learner might know more than the teacher while using a digital application or machine. We must accept this new way of learning, and in the future use it to teach and to accomplish our own ends.
+ Digital Law Electronic responsibility for actions and deeds. Digital Law is the rules and the do’s + don’ts of the digital world. What’s right, and what’s wrong. Plagiarism, downloading illegal files, hacking, sending spam, creating viruses and stealing personal information would be breaking the digital law.
+ Digital Health & Wellness Physical and psychological well-being in a digital technology world. Eye strains, back posture problems and neck aches are just a few of the physical ailments that occur to people who use their gadget to much, or are just addicted to the Internet and cannot do anything else. It’s good to get up and run around for a while! The Internet won’t go anywhere.
+ Digital Access Full electronic participation in society. Users of Electronics! You must support other people who cannot afford or are incapable of obtaining the kind of digital life you have been living. Donate electronics that you don’t need or use anymore (but are still working!) to the people that don’t have them and give them access to the Digital World!
+ Digital Communication Electronic exchange of information. Compare the amount of digital communication that we have today to the amount they had in the 17 th century! We have progressed greatly in that mean of communication and now have to many means of communication that I care to count. In fact, some people overuse it and aren’t aware of the world around them and make unreasonable decisions whilst using their communication device(s).
+ Digital Etiquette Electronic standards of conduct or procedure. Many people in the digital world have a problem with this element, especially when they have to assess their own manners (etiquette) whilst in the digital world. We must be on our “best” behavior when we are caught up in our electronics, and not say/type anything insulting or anything like that.
+ Digital Rights & Responsibilities Those freedoms extended to everyone in a digital world. In the Digital World, everyone has the same rights, from privacy to free speech to posting what ever they want. But accompanying those rights come responsibilities. Digital Citizens must be aware of their actions while in the digital realm and their consequences, and do what they think is right.
+ Digital Security (self-protection) Electronic precautions to guarantee safety. The Digital World is sort of like our own physical homes. There are people who will break into your “home” and steal your personal information, pictures, data, and anything else they can find. So, at home, you’ll put up locks and alarms to keep the intruders out. In the digital world, you’d put up virus protections, change settings so your information is secure, have backup data and other safety measures like that.
