Digital media plays a very important role everyday in a high school students life, because you use it for almost everything. We use to all take notes on paper and also have homework and books on paper but now those things are all going digital. Digital Media can make your life easier by carrying less things but it can also make it harder because its more complicated and doesn't work all the time. We also use digital media for our social lives and if you don't use it correctly it could come back to haunt you in the future.
Digital Footprint & Reputation
Consequence- The effect of something that happened earlier.
The things you post online are never private and are going to be seen by many people and stay on the internet forever, even when you delete it. Colleges and jobs look at all of your things online to help determine if they want you. They won't take you if you have inappropriate or negative things all over your social medias. So you should always watch what you post and think how it will effect you and others now and in the future.
Relationships & Communication.
Double Standard- A rule that is unfairly applied to different people or groups of people.
One pro of meeting people online are that you can meet new friends. Another pro is that you have someone you can talk to, and for some people it's easier to get things out. A con could be is that you don't really know who you are really talking to. Another one is, is that people can easily lie online and you wouldn't even know it.
Up-stander- A person who supports and stands up for someone.
Bystander- A person who does nothing when they witness something happening.
Offender- A person who has malicious intent to hurt or damage someone.
Being an up-stander is important because you can help others who are being bullied. You can help stop untrue and harmful things being spread by being an up-stander. Also you could possibly save a life for sticking up for someone. Being an up-stander is a good thing because then people see that you are a kind caring person also.
