Digital Citizenship - Summer Safety

With summer vacation approaching, and students most likely spending even more time online, it is important to remember several key points that were covered throughout the year:

 

  • Cyberbullying:  If you are a target of cyberbullying, ignore or block out the bully.  Save the evidence of what they are saying.  Change your privacy settings on social media accounts (information below).  Tell trusted friends and adults.  Additionally, we encourage students and parents to review TUSD’s “Stop, Walk, and Talk” anti-bullying video at https://vimeo.com/99269237

 

  • Cyberbullying: Remember that what you say and do online or in texts is permanent.  Teasing, harassing, threatening, and using hate language can lead to serious consequences.

 

  • Digital Security:  Online scams can lead to identify theft.  Identity theft can ruin young peoples’ financial futures and make it difficult to get loans (like student loans for college).  Never give private information out unless it’s to a trusted source.  Private information for older students to consider includes driver’s license number, city of birth, account numbers, passwords, and social security number.

 

  • Social Media: Understand who can see what when you post to Facebook, make a tweet, or upload something to a social media website.  Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. all have ways to limit who has access to what you post. 

 

  • Online Safety: You should never do something you’re uncomfortable with.  Remember that once you post or text something, like a picture of yourself, it’s out of your hands and other people have access to it.  It can be embarrassing, dangerous, and in some cases, illegal.  Talk to a parent or another trusted adult if you’re being pressured by someone to do or say something inappropriate online or through texting.
  • Creative Rights: When doing online research, or gathering resources from the internet, students should be familiar with the following concepts:
    • Many copyrighted songs, videos, books, etc generally require users to pay for use (that’s why we don’t hear the Happy Birthday Song in a lot of movies).  Copyrighted material generally has a license that explains how it can be used.
    • Many digital resources have Creative Commons licensing, which makes it easier for people to copy, share, and use the work, as long as the creator is given credit for it.
    • Fair Use policies outline when copyrighted materials can be used without paying royalties.  For example, fair use policy may make it acceptable show a portion of a movie or play a portion of a song for the purposes of critiquing it, or using it to demonstrate a point.

 

  • Digital Footprint: Your digital footprint is persistent, meaning is can last a long time, even if you delete it.  If you post something, it’s hard to remove.  Other people can pass it on, copy it, and retweet it.  What you say and do online can either help or harm your reputation and image.

 

  • Spam and Phishing: If something seems too good to be true, it probably isn’t good.  Emails that claim that the recipient has won a prize or needs to send personal information in order to win a trip or get a product are most likely a scam.  Students should not reply to these messages, block it as spam, and not click any links.
