Digital Citizenship

Rule 1: Digital Etiquette

Treat people on the internet kindly: If you want to insure nothing on the internet comes back to haunt you just be kind. If you only post nice stuff nothing can happen to you. Even if somebody is being annoying think twice before you decide to type them a mean message or say something bad about them.

Rule 2: Information Privacy

Don't post any personal information: If you want to be safe don't tell anybody your personal information. If you tell people your address or other things you can put yourself in a lot of danger. Random people can look at that information and know exactly where you live at.

Rule 3: Social Networking

Don't trust anybody you don't know: If some random ad pops up and asks for your address just close it out and ignore it. You can't trust strangers in real life so don't trust them on the internet. The next time somebody you don't know tries to chat with you ignore them.

Rule 4: Online Safety

Don't trust people you don't know: If somebody wants to see you in person and you don't know them either get parents involved or ignore that person. You don't want any random strangers to be able to find you so don't post your name of any information about yourself.

Rule 5: Cyberbullying

If you are cyberbullied don't fight back: If you are getting cyberbullied don't get mad and bully them. You need to tell someone what they are doing is wrong before they really start to bully you.

Rule 6: Plagiarism

Never copy other people's work: If you need to do research never just copy work from somebody else. If you copy work just give other people credit.

Rule 7: Copyright

You can't copy published work: If you want to publish something you can't just copy someone else's work. You can only copy work if they give you permission to copy.
