Self-Image and Identity
Online Ethics- a set of principles and morals governing people’s behavior, including honesty and respect toward others as it relates to the internet and digital devices
Every high school student uses digital media in one way or another. Now that our school has laptops we easily have access to the internet at school and at home. It makes doing homework easier but also makes cyber bullying easier too. As long as we don't abuse our privileges they can be a useful tool.
Digital Footprint and Reputation
Consequences- the effect of something that happened earlier
You never want to post anything inappropriate or mean online because you never know who is going to see it. People who are going to interview you for a job might look at all your social media profiles to see how you are online. If they see a bunch of inappropriate and mean things they're not going to hire you. So be sure to always think twice about what you post.
Relationships and Communications
Double Standard- a rule that is unfairly applied to different people or groups of people
Social media is a great way to stay in touch with friends. You can also make new friends which can be a good thing but sometimes bad. They may push you to try or do something you have never done before and you actually think about doing it so you don't lose a new friend. Never fall into peer pressure and just block them so they never bother you again.
Upstander- a person who supports and stands up for someone else
Bystander- a person who does nothing when they witness something happening
Offender- a person who has malicious intent to hurt or damage someone
It's very important to be nice to everyone online and off. If you see someone getting bullied you should stand up for them no matter what. If someone was bullying you, you would want someone to stick up for you. Maybe bet a group of people who are willing to so you're not standing alone.
