  3. 3. Access<br />Internet is used a lot around the world. People use it for fun or for work.<br />Not everyone has internet access. People in some countries cant use websites such as YouTube. These people are blocked from some internet sites.<br />Inexpensive laptops help people in many ways. They survive in rain. If some people don’t have access to electricity, laptops can charge. This is one of the many benefits a laptop has.<br />
  4. 4. Communication<br />These days, people communicate in many ways other than phone calls. Some are: texting, emails, chat rooms, and many more. 80% of people have cell phones.<br />Some of the most common and popular ways to connect with people is the MSN messenger and Skype.<br />They are both free and very fast. Skype allows you to talk to a person and see each other’s faces. MSN messenger on the other side, is a program where you chat to people but it includes ‘webcam’ which also allows you to talk to a person and see their face.<br />
  5. 5. Literacy<br />Many job citizens should know how to use the internet. Jobs require you to know things such as email and social networks.<br />The Digital divide is when you separate people who know how to use the internet and who don’t.<br />It’s important to gain knowledge on the skills that are needed to be Digitally literate.<br />
  6. 6. Security and Safety<br />Privacy is a major issue Nowadays. People that have facebook, twitter, MySpace, etc. think that their information is private, but it isn’t. They don’t realize how much personal information they’re giving out.<br />People can hack other peoples account’s very easily and look at their personal information/ pictures. This should warn people not to give out personal information.<br />
  7. 7. Etiquette<br />The most common thing that is happening with people/teenagers. People are chatting with other people using ‘acronyms’. Most adults don’t know what the symbols mean.<br />It is when people use letters to shorten words. For example, ‘ttyl’ is ‘talk to you later’ , ‘brb’ is ‘be right back’ , ‘wb’ is ‘welcome back’..etc.<br />An ‘emoticon’ is symbols that represents a face. For e.g.: ‘:) (happy) , :( (sad), etc.<br />
  8. 8. Rights & Responsibilities<br />People are responsible of their own actions and every single thing they do or post on the internet.<br />It is people’s right to do whatever they like on the internet. People have a right to have their own facebook or twitter. Although, it is your own responsibility to keep yourself safe and be careful of every thing you do.<br />
  9. 9. Law<br />Digital Law deals with 4 topics: copyright, privacy, ethical issues, and piracy. Internet can become dangerous when we don’t follow digital law.<br />People use internet illegally in many different ways. Kids for instance use it for things inappropriate and play games too mature for their age.<br />
  10. 10. Health and Wellness<br />Health and wellness means to be safe on internet mentally and physically.<br />Internet can cause a lot of problems for a humans body.<br />People should not spend as much time on digital devices as they do as it stresses the eyes.<br />
  11. 11. Commerce<br />Nowadays, people go to sites such as amazon and purchase anything they want. 29% of teens research products before they buy them in a store.<br />Almost every company now has an online store where you can buy things that are more difficult than buying them in a store.
