Christopher C Period: 6

Rule 1: Digital Etiquette

THINK before you post: is it True, Helpful, Inspirational, Necessary, Kind?

Rule 2: Information Privacy

Don't share any personal information online: This is a thing to where people can track you with social media stuff like games, videos, and other things like facebook, oovoo, and skype.

Rule 3: Social Networking

Don't interact online with people you don't know: anything you post or send or email something in your profile other people can find it. don't post anything you don't want parents, friends, officers, teachers, or anyone to see. if someone you don't know wants to chat with you its best to ignore them.

Rule 4: Online Safety

Talk to a parent or adult and see if it's okay to chat with them: Take a game like minecraft on multiplayer people talk badly all the time like sometimes people ask you how old are you? or where do you live. if you don't trust them then either ignore or talk to your parents.

Rule 5: Cyberbullying

Be kind: This is when someone bullies someone else online to stop this be nice or stand up for someone who is being bullied don't send mean texts or email because it could effect your life in the future even if you get over that and are mature enough you still can get effected.

Rule 6: Plagiarism

Taking some else's words or answers without paraphrasing: this is when people try to take like information off the internet and use it as if they have completing made it themselves. If you ever want to use some of the information without using word for word then just make it into your own like if there's some information about Martin King Jr. then just say it in your own words. like if it says he died a peaceful death then say he died in his sleep or put quotation marks to give credit.

Rule 7: Copyright

When you make some kind of work this will protect it from people using it as their own: If you have an idea like making a movie and posting it on the internet then copyright can make sure that nobody can use it unless they ask for YOUR approval. so what i mean by that is if this idea was not protected people can use it as their own. so if it is protected by this then they come and talk to you about what you have made you can set important ground rules like they must give credit to you or something like that. but copyright does not last for long once this ends it will go into public domain which means people are allowed to use it without asking for your approval.
