How do YOU Stay Safe Online?
The Internet can be a wonderful resource and provides many learning opportunities. We use it to research information, communicate with others, play interactive games, create sensational presentations, share ideas and much more. We are able to literally access the world. As we do this, we leave a trail called a digital footprint, which is shaped by every place we visit on the web. In order to learn and benefit from these opportunities, it is important to learn web netiquette (good web manners), make good decisions and practice online safety.
IMPORTANT NOTE ON IMAGE SHARING: Please keep in mind that everything we do digitally is saved forever in a database and is most likely backed up in several locations throughout the world. Actual people manage those databases and the information, including images, can be accessed. So, the image that you send to a friend is probably being viewed by a database manager in some other part of the world and people who are googling about you may have access to it even years later when you have completely forgotten about it.
