Cyber bullying, Digital Citizenship, and Internet Safety

Cyber Bullying

Cyber bullying can happen to anyone, but it most commonly happens to teens. In today's world we are more connected than ever. We are constantly connected through telephones, computers, iPads, and whatever other form of new technology is hitting the market. For most people, whoever they want to reach is never more than a click away; whether it's via call, text, or email. While it is easy to to think about all the great things that are a result of this constant connectedness, it is important to remember that it makes it that much easier for cyber bullying to take place.

Digital Citizenship

Your Virtual Footprint

Every time you log onto a website you are leaving a mark, like a footprint. It is so important to remember that the things you put up on to social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, or MySpace are fair game for the world to see. Whether it is images, comments, status updates, tweets, or just absent-minded remarks; the things you say and do online can follow you EVERYWHERE. Remember not to say or do anything online you wouldn't want ANYONE to read or see.
