All Robla School District students receive Digital Citizenship training throughout the school year from their classroom and technology enrichment teachers. While working in a digital and collaborative environment, students should always conduct themselves as good digital citizens by remembering the following:
I will show respect for myself through my actions. I will select online names that are appropriate. I will use caution with the information, images and other media that I post online. I will assume that any information I share online is permanent even if I attempt to remove it. I will carefully consider what personal information about my life, experiences or relationships I post. I will not be obscene. I will act with integrity.
I will ensure that the information, images, and materials I post online will not put me at risk. I will not publish my personal details, contact details, or a schedule of my activities. I will report any attacks of inappropriate behavior directed at me while online. I will protect passwords, accounts, and resources.
I will show respect to others. I will not use electronic mediums to antagonize, bully, harass or stalk people. I will show respect for other people in my choice of websites: I will not visit sites that are degrading to others, pornographic, racist, or inappropriate. I will not enter other people’s private spaces or areas. I will broadcast messages only for educational purposes.
I will protect others by reporting abuse and not forwarding inappropriate materials or communications. I will avoid unacceptable materials and conversations.
Respect Intellectual Property
I will request permission to use copyrighted or otherwise protected materials. I will suitably city all use of websites, books, media, etc. I will acknowledge all primary sources. I will validate information. I will use and abide by the fair use rules.
Protect Intellectual Property
I will request to use the software and media others produce. I will purchase, license and register all software of use available free and open source alternatives rather than pirating software. I will purchase my music and media and refrain from distributing these in a manner that violates their licenses.
