Digital Citizenship

 
WITH POWER COMES RESPONSIBILITY
 
............................................................................................................................
 
1.  Think before you post or text - a bad reputation could be just a click away.
 
Before you press the "send" button, imagine the last person in the world that you'd want to seeing what you posted.  The Internet is not written in pencil.  It's written in pen.  Think before you post.
 
2.  What goes around comes around.
 
If you want your privacy respected, respect others' privacy.  Posting an embarrassing photo or forwarding a friend's private text without asking can cause hurt or damage to others.
 
3.  Spread heart, not hurt.
 
If you woudn't say it in person, don't say it online.  Stand up for those who are bullied or harassed, and let them know that you're there for them.
 
4.  Give and get credit.
 
We're all proud of what we create.  Illegal downloading, digital cheating, and cutting and pasting other people's stuff may be easy, but that doesn't make it right.  You have the responsibility to respect other people's creative work - and the right to have your own work respected.
 
5.  Make this a world you want to live in.
 
Spread the good stuff.  Create, share, tag, comment, and contribute to the online world in positive ways.
