Digital Citizenship

Students participating in the TIS Computer Club are practicing digital citizenship. Digital Citizenship can be defined as being an ethical and responsible citizen of the infoverse. As we learn more about being responsible and productive citizens in the digital world we will add what we're learning here to this wiki page.

TIS Computer Club Kids will:
  1. Never post personal information about themselves or others. Personal information includes last names, home address, phone number, or any other personally identifying information.
  2. Post only things that are relevant and pertinent to the TIS Computer Club on our wiki pages.
  3. Be courteous when posting information, holding discussions, or sending wiki mail.
  4. Remember that information on the internet, especially embarrassing information, may still be around after you've deleted it, and some college admission offices and employers do Internet searches on prospective candidates. Be careful not to post things that may come back to haunt you later.
  5. Will respect copyrighted material.
