Online Ethics: is a set of moral principles that govern the usage of computers
The role digital media plays in a high schools student's everyday life is that we use it everyday. We use digital media even for school projects.

Or that college you wanted to go to. Yes, some might argue that the have "freedom of speech" which they do, just know that there will be consequences.
Relationships and Communication
Double Standard: A rule that is unfairly applied to different people or groups of people

Target: A person who is the object of the intentional action
Offender: A person who has malicious intent to hurt or damage someone
Bystander: A person who does nothing when they witness something happening
Upstander: A person who supports and stands up for someone else
The reason it is important to be an upstander is because there are few people who actually do it. Many people will just stand back and watch things happen. If we keep letting this to continue to happen there will be more people who will think worse about themselves instead of wanting to be them.
