The presentation at the December 2011 PTO meeting was on Internet Safety. PTO TODAY (www.ptotoday.com) provided a presentation and materials to educate families on how to raise children to be good ‘digital citizens’. Teaching our children to be good digital citizens is a critical way to keep them safe online and to ensure they use digital technology in ways that enrich their lives.
- Being a good digital citizen is really the same as being a good citizen, period.
- It means treating people with respect and notifying an adult when someone is being hurtful or harming themselves or someone else.
- It means being aware of risks and taking steps to protect your privacy, your reputation, your hard drive.
- In short, being a good digital citizen means knowing how to use personal technology and behaving online as you do off.
