In the era of advanced technology already, including education should also remain alert to the dangers and negative influences to the students.
Here is a discussion on "Internet Safety and Digital Citizenship" from @gurukreatif.
1. What is the 'Internet Safety and Digital Citizenship'?
Internet Safety: procedures for safe keeping in the virtual world, the internet.
Digital Citizenship: a sense of responsibility as good citizens of the digital world.
2. What is the danger if educators negligent?
A teacher who failed to take the values of internet usage is difficult to be an example for the students, because the duty of a teacher is not only good at teaching directly or face to face but also must be able to teach a virtual or online. So a teacher should always be aware of what he did on the internet.
Provide examples of the current experience of internet use is also becoming one of the ways that students care about the safety of themselves and for their future. A teacher is reasonable to be suspicious and wary of his students when using the Internet, but give them the confidence that they are able to fend for themselves. Because if teachers are not vigilant, the teachers are negligent. Teachers were negligent, the same as his plunges into the ocean is full of sharks.
3. How to teach students about 'Internet Safety and Digital Citizenship' correctly?
In the use of the Internet should be urged that teachers must hold these characters well. And consistent that it should not be done equally real life should not be made while using the internet.
Teachers can start from simple things such as the urge to use proper grammar when texting and social media status updates on their own.
4. Who should be a partner in keeping our students to technological developments?
Schools must have a letter of agreement for the student provides the ability to use computers and the internet for a good purpose. If your school around many cafes? Let's do a persuasive approach to the healthy internet.
Schools can also organize counseling about healthy Internet usage for parents, students, teachers, and community environment.
