My personal profile on digital citizenship is that you need to be yourself on the internet. You need to be kind and have self control, be who you would really be if you were face to face with someone. Be careful what you say and what you do because everything on the internet stays on the internet. I have seen to many people get courage from hiding behind a screen and up making mistakes thinking something is private and its not. Also remember that when it comes to the internet it is not always what it seems.
My viewpoint on internet safety has been hugely influenced by my own personal experience of someone pretending to be someone their not and also from friends that have had bad experiences with information that they choose to give away to strangers because they thought they knew that person by talking to them online. As I have gotten older I have a daughter and two young cousins and my opinion an letting kids know about being safe on the internet has greatly strengthened. I want kids to know that internet can be a great tool but it can also be a dangerous place.
Throughout my Innovations and Instruction class and learning about ways to incorporate technology and the internet into the classroom by viewpoint on digital citizenship has drastically been influenced.
