Information Literacy

This is a learning guide designed to teach students about information literacy and why it matters.

Ethical Use and Digital Citizenship

When we engage with digital information on our various devices, we enter a community of users and producers of information. In doing so, we become digital citizens with rights and responsibilities. These rights and responsibilities are sometimes explicitly defined in laws; at other times, they are not explicit but are understood norms that protect users and establish a sense of order. 

Main topics in the domain of digital ethics include:

Online Privacy & Security

Copyright Law

Cyberbullying & Online Harassment
