Digital Citizenship

​​Digital Citizenship​ for Secondary Students



  • Be your own person.

  • Be nice online.

  • Think before you post.

  • Passwords are private.

  • Read between the lines. Flattering messages may actually be manipulation.

  • Don't talk about your physical characteristics with strangers. Avoid in-person meetings with people you have met online. 

  • Password protect your mobile phone.​​

​What does Cyberbullying look like?bully.jpg

  • Abusive texts and emails
  • Hurtful messages, images or videos
  • Imitating others online to set them up
  • Excluding others online
  • Nasty online gossip and chat

​How do I deal with cyberbullying?

  • Talk to someone you trust right away— a parent, sibling, uncle, aunt, teacher or friend
  • Don't retaliate or respond—they might use it against you
  • Block the bully and change your privacy settings
  • Report the abuse to the service and get others to as well
  • Collect the evidence—keep mobile phone messages and print emails or social networking conversations
  • Remember you didn't ask for this—nobody deserves to be bullied​
