Digital Citizenship
What is Digital Citizenship?

Lots of things!
Why Are These Things Important?
There are different laws that are here to help us become better digital citizens (make the right choices on the internet).
Are you ready to be a digital citizen?
Now that you know what "Digital Citizenship" stands for, you've heard of some examples and you've practiced them yourself, are you ready to turn our classroom into a Digital Citizen hot spot!?

If you are committed to making the internet a better place then you are ready to sign our classroom contract for Digital Citizens called an AUP (Acceptable Use Policy). This contract will help us all to continue making good choices! Your parents get to sign one too :)

Once we have signed our helpful contracts we can receive our Digital Citizenship license to carry with us everywhere!

see that other people have created things and we have to ask permission to use them, just like in class, except on the internet.
There is also another
law called the
Fair Use Clause
This is a special law that helps teachers and researchers use certain copy righted materials from the internet so that we can teach you new things in exciting ways!
Teachers can use materials if...
1. They are using them to teach
2. The materials are appropriate
3. The teacher does not use a lot of copy righted work
4. The materials are not very expensive

4. Making fun of others on the internet
5. Copying someone else's words or pictures without permission
6. Watching a funny YouTube video

spot on the compass

Let's take a journey!
Great Job Digital Citizens!
Lets look at some examples:
Good Digital Citizenship
Bad Digital Citizenship
Jon really loves to play games on the computer. But he always sets a timer to get up and get active every 30 minutes.
Melanie has been learning a lot about how to use the computer and keyboard at school. Her parents never learned much about using technology so Melanie decides to help her parents learn.
Josiah likes to ask his teacher questions about homework by emailing her. He always uses his best language in an email and makes sure that all of his words are spelled correctly.
Emily loves to have her cell phone with her. She knows shes very fortunate that her mom let her have her old one. Emily also knows that she should put it away during school and when people are talking to her because its important to give them her full attention.
Maurice has to use the internet to look up some information for the story he is writing in class. Maurice knows that not all of the information on the internet is true, and some websites are very dangerous. Maurice looks for trustworthy websites and asks his teacher for approval.
Hunter thinks its funny to comment on some of his classmates photos on the internet and make jokes. Other kids think its funny too, but Hunter is actually hurting his classmates' feelings.
Isabelle has met some really nice people on the internet before. She loves to talk to them because they're so friendly and funny. Isabelle wants to hang out with them so she gave them her address.
Camden found some cool tennis shoes on an online store. He was sure his parents wouldn't mind if he bought them because then they wouldn't have to make a trip to the store. Camden used his parents' credit card without asking to buy the shoes.
Sarah is making a power point in class. She really wants to have the best one so she looks on the internet for pictures about her topic. She finds the perfect pictures and copy and pastes them into her power point! She definitely knew her project would be the best now.
Jackson really loves listening to music. One day he even wants to become a musician. To find new songs to put on a CD he goes to a free website. Jackson doesn't understand why anybody would ever pay to have a cool song.
