Unit 5 Task

Share with us your top 5-10 code of ethics statements for using technology in the classroom or your professional workplace.

These ethics would be great to display in a computer room or ICT class as guidelines for students when entering any digital workspace. This would be particularly relevant in a religious school to relate to teaching of the Ten Commandments and having students understand that we live by the Ten Commandments to guide our lives and these online ethics are here to guide our online lives.
