Digital Citizenship Project
Taylor R. Period 6
Rule #1: Digital Ettiquete
Pause before you post. Is what your saying True, Helpful, Inspirational, Necessary, or Kind? If not then you shouldn't post it. Would you like it if someone was saying rude or hateful things about you? On the other end of your flame war there is a real person with real feelings, so just remember pause before you post!
Rule #7: Copyright
Copyright is legal protection to one's creative work, when something is copyrighted you can't copy, perform, show, give away their work. In some ways you can give others permission to perform or give out your work. If someone performs (etc.) your work without your permission you can take them to court and potentially sue them.
Digital Citizenship is very important because it matter whenever your online whether your playing a game or chatting on facebook. It can teach you things like being nice to others online, or how you shouldn't give out personal information, or how if you copy someone's work you can get an F on your paper or if it's a song you can even be sued. If no one had digital citizenship the internet would be a scary unsafe place where people hurt others. When you post something mean about someone else you can seriously hurt someone's feelings and ruin someone's self confidence. It's important that you pause before you post so the internet is a nice fun place!!!
