L. Digital Citizenship - The Digital Citizen will follow five tenets of citizenship in order to be a positive member of their cyber-communities. 1. Respect yourself 2. Protect yourself 3. Respect others         4. Protect others 5. Respect intellectual property
L1. Respecting yourself starts with the name you use to present yourself. How often do we see social networking or twitter names that are suggestive and questionable, or images posted to social sites that are inappropriate? How will your profile, online name and images portray you?  Many of the social sites will also ask personal questions. You need to think about the potential outcomes of answering questions publicly. When you join any social site, be sure to keep current on the privacy settings and keep a close eye and what is available to the mass public. Do not trust the default preferences to protect you.
L2. Protect Yourself - Always remember that anything on the Internet is never truly private. Be cautious with what you post and share in any cyber-community or messages. (This includes text messages and other communication via cell phones, etc.)
L3. Respect others - Model respect for other people in what you say online, what material you forward to others and the web sites that you visit. Also model respect by not allowing others to be disrespectful to others in your online community.
L4. Protect others - Every social networking site, instant messaging tool, chat room, wiki, blog and social media has a report abuse contact. Be sure to use it when needed. We can protect others by not tolerating and reporting behavior that is inappropriate or unacceptable.  Don't forward emails that are mean or rude, delete them.
L5. Respect Intellectual Property  -  There is so much information out there, there are so many amazing materials shared and so many people have given their precious time for free. A good digital citizen respects others’ intellectual property.
I have read the expectations outlined above, agree to the terms and would like my student to participate fully in the device program by bringing the device home for school use. *
