Cyber ethics and respect for others online are critical skills to acquire for today's connected teens. The message of this teen-centered video is that all students have a responsibility to behave ethically online and to know how to react when others behave in inappropriate ways. Teen hosts discuss the ethics of issues such as distributing unflattering pictures or posts aimed at harming someone's reputation and the importance of respecting the privacy of others. They emphasize the importance of respecting the safety of others and becoming an upstander rather than a bystander when witnessing abusive behavior online. One teen gives a real-life account of the devastating effects of being cyberbullied. Student interviews expose the extent of plagiarism among their peers and student attitudes about plagiarism. The program details the differences between legitimate online research and plagiarism. Similarly, the differences between legitimate sharing online and piracy are clearly spelled out as are the ethical implications and legal risks of stealing someone else's work.
