Digital Citizenship For teachers and students, digital citizenship changes as new technology tools are used by the educational world. We must maintain guidelines so that we are respectful and fair with one another.
Goals of Digital Citizenship Teach teachers, students, and parents the basics of technology and its issues. Outline the expectations of responsible use of technology, including cyber bullying and Internet safety, as well as plagiarism.
Definition of Digital Citizenship The norms of appropriate and responsible behavior when using technology.
Technology Access Students today are constantly utilizing technology at school, at home, and while they are on the go. Most have access to smart phones, laptops, tablets, and are accessing the Internet all the time. Students must learn how to responsibly use the technology.
Shopping Online Online shopping is an important part of many people’s lives. In 2006, students between the ages of 8 and 24 spent $196 billion online. Imagine how that number has grown today. There are consequences to buying online. Be aware of scams, identity theft, viruses, and spyware. Be aware of protecting your credit or debit card information and your personal data.
Digital Communication Texting is the preferred method of communication. How has texting affected your life? What are other methods of communication using technology? What are the dangers of sending harmful information through text, image, or video? Remember, no matter how private you think it is, someone can get access to anything you send to someone else.
Digital Literacy Know what is appropriate and what is not when using technology. Some rules are written; others are understood. Your use of technology affects others. What is written in a text or posted to social media can be misunderstood by others. Know when it is okay at school to use your technology, and when it is not okay.
Digital Law Do not infringe upon the rights of others. Do not turn in someone else’s work you copied online as your own. Follow all Copyright procedures. Do Not: Use file sharing sites Pirate software Hack into other systems Steal someone’s identity
Digital Rights and Responsibilities Read and sign the school’s Acceptable Use Policy. Follow the terms of the policy. Cite resources you use and request permission to use them. Report signs of cyberbullying or threats, or other inappropriate use immediately. Do not harm others through your use of technology.
Digital Security Pay close attention to your personal safety. Maintain up-to-date antivirus software to protect your computer. Comply with the firewalls. They are there for your protection. Conduct periodic backups. Do not share your passwords with anyone. Remember that https:// sites are secure. http:// sites are not guaranteed secure. Do not share your personal information with anyone you do not know.
