Digital Citizenship

What does it mean to be a “good citizen”?

What does it mean to be safe?

 

Behavior Expectations

When I was growing up, there were expectations my parents had of me for my personal safety:

  1. Ask permission before going somewhere.
  2. Don’t talk to strangers. — (With the exception of my parents/entrusted adult being aware of the conversation.)
  3. Ask for help when I need it.
  4. Be polite and use good manners.
  5. Help others when I can, and add to their lives.

These are the same expectations I have of my own children for their interactions in our physical community and our digital communities.
