digital rights and responsabilities definition:

why does it matter and how does it affect students?

It matters because the students can be affected by cruel facebook and twitter posts. Students are also so affected by online bullying that it leads to depression and sometimes so derastic it leads to suicide.

Real life example:


"October 7, 2003 will always be the day that divides my life. Before that day my son Ryan was alive. A sweet, gentle and lanky thirteen year old fumbling his way through early adolescence and trying to establish his place in the often confusing and difficult social world of middle school. After that day my son would be gone forever, a death by suicide. Some would call it bullycide or even cyber bullycide. I just call it a huge hole in my heart that will never heal." if you want to read more go to the website:

Incouragement

I think that this is a very serious matter and it can only be fixed if we all pitch in and help to stop the missuse of digital technolagy. As you can see above this is a serious issue and all we have to do is find people affected by this and help them out . If you see someone and they are looking down ask them whats up and help them out because there is a posability that it is the cause of someone missuseing there digital responsability. If you dont know how you can help all you have to do is tell them that they are good at alot of things and just incourage them and lift there sperits. Just let them know that there are people out there that care and want to help. The internet can be a great place to socialize and talk to friends and even make new friends, if people can just stop missusing there rights to us a computer or cellphone. It's not that hard to do something that they teach you in kindergarden and that is to treat others how you would like to be treated.
