CYBER BULLING

CYBER BULLING | ECONOMIC ISSUES | Scoop.it
Nkosikhona Nzama's insight:

Cyber bullying is when a child, preteen or teen is tormented, threatened, harassed, humiliated, embarrassed or otherwise targeted by another child, preteen or teen using the Internet, interactive and digital technologies or mobile phones. It has to have a minor on both sides, or at least have been instigated by a minor against another minor. Once adults become involved, it is plain and simple cyber-harassment or cyber stalking. Adult cyber-harassment or cyber stalking is NEVER called cyber bullying.

It isn't when adult are trying to lure children into offline meetings, that is called sexual exploitation or luring by a sexual predator. But sometimes when a minor starts a cyber bullying campaign it involves sexual predators who are intrigued by the sexual harassment or even ads posted by the cyber bullying offering up the victim for sex.

DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP

DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP | ECONOMIC ISSUES | Scoop.it
Nkosikhona Nzama's insight:

digital citizenship is certainly gaining momentum not only in the United States but around the world. Whether it is called digital citizenship, digital wellness or digital ethics the issues are the same; how should we act when we are online, and what should be taught to the next generation.  With the growth of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and 1:1 initiatives in schools there is a need to talk about responsible use of technology.   There are many organizations and individuals that are working on this topic.  If you are interested in additional information go to the Resources Tab and look for their links.  With the changes happening so rapidly please check out some of these leaders on Twitter using the #digcit to search for ideas.

MEDIA LITERACY

MEDIA LITERACY | ECONOMIC ISSUES | Scoop.it
Nkosikhona Nzama's insight:

Media literacy is an ability of information in a variety forms being interdisciplinary by nature. Media literacy represents a necessary, inevitable, and realistic response to the complex, ever-changing electronic environment and communication cornucopia that surround us.

 To become a successful student, responsible citizen, productive worker, or competent and conscientious consumer, individuals need to develop expertise with the increasingly sophisticated information and entertainment media that address us on a multi-sensory level, affecting the way we think, feel, and behave. Today’s information and entertainment technologies communicate to us through a powerful combination of words, images, and sounds. As such, we need to develop a wider set of literacy skills helping us to both comprehend the messages we receive and effectively utilize these tools to design and distribute our own messages. Being literate in a media age requires critical thinking skills that empower us as we make decisions, whether in the classroom, the living room, the workplace, the boardroom, or the voting booth. Finally, while media literacy does raise critical questions about the impact of media and technology, it is not an anti-media movement. Rather, it represents a coalition of concerned individuals and organizations, including educators, faith-based groups, health care-providers, and citizen and consumer groups, who seek a more enlightened way of understanding our media environment

COPYRIGHT AND ETHICS

COPYRIGHT AND ETHICS | ECONOMIC ISSUES | Scoop.it
Nkosikhona Nzama's insight:

Ethics are the principles designed to help professionals conduct business honestly and with integrity. A code of ethics document may outline the mission and values of the business or organization, how professionals are supposed to approach problems, the ethical principles based on the organization's core values and the standards to which the professional will be held. Both businesses and trade organizations typically have some sort of code of ethics that its employees or members are supposed to follow. Breaking the code of ethics can result in termination or dismissal from the organization. A code of ethics is important because it clearly lays out the "rules" for behavior and provides a preemptive warning. and Copyright is a legal concept, enacted by most governments, that grants the creator of an original work exclusive rights to its use and distribution, usually for a limited time, with the intention of enabling the creator of intellectual wealth for instance the photographer of a photograph or the author of a book to receive compensation for their work and be able to financially support themselves.in other words it is called plagiarism. Which is a very serious crime in nowadays. Linking it with ethics it’s when they are broken then legal actions has to be taken to solve that issue, then there is a broken digital citizenship
