Digital Citizenship Definition: A person using information technology, in order to engage in society, politics, and government participation.

Privacy and Security

Technology users need to be aware that not everyone has the same opportunities when it comes to technology. Digital exclusion makes it difficult to grow as a society increasingly using these tools.

Privacy and Security

Safety and security start with protecting all family computers with a security suite (anti-virus, anti-spyware, and firewall) that is set to update automatically. Keep your operating system, web browsers, and other software current as well, and back up computer files on a regular basis.

Internet Safety

It’s important to be aware of how to keep your information private, your self safe, and how to behave in these online environments.

Internet Safety

Use the right language for your audience. Don't share personal information, including passwords, your home address, inappropriate images, and gossip.

Positive Digital Presence

The best way to start improving your digital presence is to search yourself. This allows you to view the information out there about you as a potential employer will view it.
