RULE 1: Digital Etiquette

RULE: Be kind. Be kind online, don't do anything mean, don't be a flamer, be respectful, treat others the way you want to be treated.

RULE 2: Information Privacy

RULE: Never give out your personal information. People can go on your profile and mess it up, people can change your password and you can never go on it, people can tell lies and people will think its you spreading the rumors.

RULE 3: Social Networking

RULE: Be safe while social networking. It would be better to decline a friend request if you don't know them, decline a chat if you don't know the person, make your profile private.

RULE 4: Online Safety

RULE: Keep your identity a secret. Don't give away name, address, phone number, street, school, face, to random strangers.

RULE 5: Cyberbullying

RULE: Cyber bullying on the internet can hurt people as much as getting bullied in real life. It can hurt someone, and they could get a parent, and the parent will do something, don't cyber bully it could really hurt someone and if someone tries to stick up for you they could get bullied too.

RULE 6: Plagiarism

RULE: You can't steal other peoples rules or ideas. Don't steal a quote from a website about what your supposed to be doing in class, give the person who wrote a quote credit, do not just copy and paste because that is plagiarism, and don't expect to get a good grade when you copy and paste something.

RULE 6: Copyright

RULE: Do not copy something without permission. If you do copyright you could get into serious trouble, you must ask the owner to copy it, if you want to edit it to, you have to ask the owner, and if you don't want anyone copying it make sure to make sure it says that in somewhere in the description.

What is Digital Citizenship?

Digital citizenship is being kind and honest everywhere you go, even on the internet, and to follow the rules on the internet. For example, online safety is your private identity and making sure your online status's are private. Another example is information privacy is to never give out any information about yourself online, and don't give out passwords even to your best friend in the whole world. Also social networking is when you are on a social media app, and you see someone requests to follow you or be your friend, it would be better off declining the request, and if someone requests to chat with you you should decline it. Last, it is necessary for everyone to understand and display Digital Citizenship because people can actually get hurt online, and if you do something bad online that could ruin your chances getting a job or getting into a a college.
