Guide: Shenequa Pierre

Welcome! You're about to learn some great stuff about Internet safety, social networking, online learning tools, and digital privacy and security. Just exactly what is a good Digital Citizen? Before answering this question, a base for what makes a good citizen must be established. There are numerous definitions for good citizenship. Most involve being aware of and involved in the greater interest and needs of people around us, both local and global. It is more than just being nice, being moral and following laws although those are important pieces.

You might be thinking, "Why do I need to know this stuff? I'm happy with being able to do what I like on the Internet and all the warnings about web safety are over-hyped by anxious teachers and parents. And....there are lots of reasons (besides getting super smart) to learn about these things. I won't give the the entire list but I'll mention five important reasons this matters:

1. Watching your children and adults be involved in cyberbullying without realizing it, which could lead to a ton of trouble.

2. You could share your personal information with someone who is pretending to be trustworthy when in fact they are attempting to steal your personal information.

3. You could find things you're looking for more quickly - saving you a lot of time for doing more fun things like listening to music, spending time with family or shopping for things you want.

4. You could become the most knowledgeable person in your family, home, and neighborhood about the Internet. Knowledge is power!

5. You could enjoy all that the Internet has to offer (and it offers a lot of cool things) while not putting yourself, family or friends at risk.

Now that I have you interested in finding out more, here's what you're going to have to do to be smarter than the above average Internet user. REMEMBER - knowledge is power.
