Online Rights and Responsibilities

This blog post http://eschoolblogs.org.au/blog/2013/01/24/safer-internet-day-5th-february/ gives a lot of background information and links to videos to start the conversation with your students.

Please share ideas from your students as to what they feel are their rights and responsibilities. We can then, together create a student-generated manifesto for safe and responsible use of the internet.
