Be a Good Digital Citizen
Technology connects us to friends and family, information and media. But it can also be used in inappropriate and harmful ways. It's important to be a good Digital Citizen to keep yourself safe and use these tools in an effective and responsible manner. Here are the five themes of Digital Citizenship:
Balanced students use screen time wisely and do not let the cyber world take over the real world.
Literate students look at digital resources critically considering the bias, authority and currency of sources. Be picky about which sources you use, and learn to use specialized information tools provided by the LMTC.
Responsible students know how to protect themselves online and use borrowed equipment appropriately. Avoid sharing personal information and think before sending messages. When you use school devices, don't use them to create problems for others.
Ethical students give credit where credit is due. Take notes from information sources without plagiarizing, and avoid violating laws about copyright.
Positive students use technology to learn, communicate and create. Do not use it to the detriment of others by spreading rumors, harassing or teasing classmates, taking pictures of people when they are not aware of it, or sending inappropriate messages.
