Self image & Identity
Online ethics is a set of moral principles that govern the usage of computers.
Digital media is a huge part of an everyday high school students lives. Digital media is how people who don't know you personally, see you. The power of the internet can be used in a positive or negative way but if you have good online ethics then you shouldn't have a problem.
Digital Footprint & Reputation
Consequence- is a result of an action or condition.
Posting inappropriate or negative comments online can have major consequences. Most teens don't understand that what you put online does matter and it does affect other people. 71.9% of teens say that have posted rude comments on peoples social networking profiles at least once or twice in a year. People just need to understand that 1 thing could change how somebody sees themselves
Relationships & Communication
Double Standard- a rule that is unfairly applied to different people or groups of people
Communicating with people that you meet online can go either two ways, good, or bad. Sometimes you want to talk to people that have the same interest or that you have stuff in common with. Social media makes that possible but it is all through a screen so you do not have any idea who this person actually is, just there online image. The show catfish is the perfect example for this.
target-a person who is the object of an intentional action
offender-a person who has malicious intent to hurt or damage someone
bystander- a person who does nothing when they witness something happen
up-stander- a person who supports + stands up for someone else.
Cyberbullying is a major problem in our society today because having so many social media sites makes it so convenient. Standing and watching somebody do something bad does not mean that you aren't also doing something wrong by not actively participating. An up-stander is a person who supports and stands up for someone else. It is important to be an up-stander because you need to think about how you would feel if you were the person being bullied and nobody helped you.
