Rights

Knowledge

* Our kids must have access to knowledge of how the internet works

* how information is accessed

* what is fact and what is not

* what is content and what is advertising

Protection * from bullying and harassment

* from violence

* from any who make them feel they have no value

Participation

* right to participate in discussions and forums

* right to engage and interact on social media and websites

* right to an opinion without fear of violence or harassment

Responsibilities

Respect Others

* Our kids must know it is their responsibility not to impede the basic rights of others or in any way participate in behaviour that is detrimental to others.

Respect Ourselves

* And equally important is a responsibility to
respect ourselves. Our kids must be aware of their digital footprint and how this effects how they are perceived and who and what they represent.
