Digital Citizenship

What your online past, can do to you now...


Digital Citizenship - Navigating the digital world safely, responsibly, and ethically.

Online Ethics - A set of principles and morals governing people's behavior as it relates to the internet and digital devices.

The importance of digital media refers to using audio, photos, and video. You have to be careful what you do throughout high-school. You could've taken a picture or video and posted it online, little did you know it'd be there forever. Anybody could see it, if you posted a video of you getting intoxicated on Facebook, a college could see it and not accept you in.

Self Image and Identity


Footprint - This is your trail, or your "footprint" that people leave online.

Consequence - The effect of something that happened earlier.

Being a student throughout school there are many things that could happen. You could become more involved in social media, or download games that need you to make an account. Anyway, you should be aware of what you post online or those games. What you say then could follow you forever. Just keep in mind that you should be smart and safe about what you say.

5 Ways to Make a Positive Digital Footprint!


Target - The aim of the attack.

Upstander - Someone who is willing stand up and take action for others.

Bystander - Someone who is present, but not willing to take action.

Offender - A person who takes place or commits in an illegal act of crime.

The importance of being an upstander is a big role. It takes a lot to stand up for someone or something else. It is important to do this to protect the feelings of others, and to maybe stop the bully's attempts to push down others. You wouldn't want somebody to do that to you, so it's good to stand up for others.



Image - A representation of someone or something such as a photograph or drawing; the way someone or something is perceived by others.

Double Standard - A rule or principle that is unfairly applied in different ways to different people or groups.

Meeting new people online can have benefits and consequences. Becoming friends with someone online could be a good thing because you could possibly match with somebody with the same interests as you. Again though, if you met somebody online they could be lying about who they really are. They could say that they're 21 and actually end up being 43 or even 12. So you have to be careful with what you say and do online when meeting new people. Not to mention giving out personal info, never do that unless you know who you are really talking too.
