Participate 1- Character Traits

Digital citizenship is a guideline for appropriate behavior for online interactions. Even though you’re not always seen, it doesn’t mean that certain types of behaviors are okay. Three of the most important traits of a digital citizen are RESPECT, APPROPRIATE USE, and PRIVACY.

  1. Respect– Treat others with respect. Don’t steal property that is not yours. Give credit where credit is due. An individual that emulates this trait will become a leader.
  2. Appropriate Use– Understand what sites are acceptable at particular places. Be able to regulate personal use and prioritize business use.  Careful and cautious will come out ahead.
  3. Privacy– Never put anything online that you wouldn’t mind sharing in person. Respect others’ privacy.  This is integrity.
