Digital Citizenship: Developing an Ethical and Responsible Online Culture PROCEEDINGS

School Library Association of Queensland and the International Association of School Librarianship Conference incorporating the International Forum on Research in School Librarianship,

Abstract

Responsible and ethical use of the Internet is not something that teenagers, in particular, consider to be important, and serious consequences are beginning to emerge as a result of careless and offensive online behaviour. Teachers and teacher-librarians have a duty of care to make students aware of the potentially devastating effects of thoughtless, inappropriate or malicious online behaviour, and to guide them into making wise choices when interacting in a digital world. (Contains 75 website references.)
