Raising Digital Citizens
This was a virtual paper presentation, peer reviewed and published in the EdItLib. On June 24, 2015. The paper was accompanied by a power point presentation.
Raising digital citizens is the job of all stakeholders. Parents, supervising school personnel, administrators, and the local authorities play a role in cyber-safety. A need exists to implement programs and training opportunities related to cyberbullying awareness and prevention. Behaviors of cyberbullying are difficult to identify. Increasing awareness of the dangers of cyberbullying and inappropriate websites may encourage school age children to make better decisions when using personal digital devices such as cell phones, iPads, and the computer to interact with peers. It is never too early to introduce children to netiquette. All stakeholders must educate themselves on the trending websites designed to lure unsuspecting victims into the sites.
