Ethical use of Technology "These texts abound in our electronic information age, and the messages they convey, both overt and implied, can have a significant influence on students’ lives. For this reason, critical thinking as it applies to media products and messages assumes a special significance. Understanding how media texts are constructed and why they are produced enables students to respond to them intelligently and responsibly."

A Digital Community of Character Designed by the WRDSB in 2009, this Digital Citizenship Character development chart was made in support of their Community of Character focusing on: Remember that... There is a permanency to everything we put online

Use the tools, but use them intelligently and properly
Teachers need to guide our students to use technology effectively
“Think before you click”
We are here to prepare our students for tomorrow...not for last year.

This is information transmitted online, such as forum registration, e-mails and attachments, uploading videos or digital images and any other form of transmission of information — all of which leaves traces of personal information about yourself available to others online."
