Welcome to the HSTE Project Digital Citizen Wikispace

websites. Many students use the internet to communicate with their friends. Popular sites such as

Digital Etiquette or Netequette
:" electronic standards of conduct or procedure. Technology leaders will recognize this area as one of the most pressing problems when dealing with digital citizenship. What is appropriate and inappropriate electronic behavior? We recognize inappropriate behavior when we see it, but schools seldom teach digital etiquette (i.e., appropriate conduct) as part of the regular curriculum. Outside school, violations of digital etiquette are ignored. Inside schools, we create rules and regulation or even ban the technology that is being used inappropriately. It is not enough to create rules and policy, we must teach students to become responsible digital citizens in school as well as in society."

What is Cyberbullying? Tom Wood's Complete Guide to Stop Cyberbullying
It is saying or posting something on the internet that is mean or offensive to someone else. Do you know someone who has been a victim of Cyberbullying? Have you been a victim of Cyberbullying?
The HSTE Project
will have a
ZERO Tolerance Policy
with respect to this type of offensive conduct directed at anyone.
Cyberbullying can be sending unwanted emails to someone over and over again. Emails that contain threats, sexual remarks, provocative or suggestive subject lines intended to offend someone are examples of Cyberbullying. Cyberbullies can say things about someone on Social Networking sites such as Facebook and MySpace with the intent of hurting a person's reputation by spreading rumors or lies to many people who could potentially view those postings.
Most people while they were growing up have probably been bullied by someone at school, but they got away from the bully when the left school and got home with their family and friends. Cyberbullying does not stop at school but

HISD School Email
. School email is a tool to communicate with your teachers, paraprofessionals, administrators and other HISD school employees. Responsible use of school email is a must. You may not use the school email system to email to any email address outside of the HISD email system. It will not allow you to email to someone who has a Gmail, AOL, Yahoo or other email addresses.
1. Always put a subject in the subject line. Emails without a subject should not be opened as this is a way that some spammers use to transmit computer viruses. NEVER OPEN AN EMAIL WITHOUT A SUBJECT.
2. Do use the email to communicate with your Team Members, Section Leader, Project Manager, Mr. Peters or any of your other teachers. You may not use your school email, or any other email account you have to contact any HSTE Project Partner outside of our secure websites.
3. Do not use the school email to just say "Hi" to your friends. The reason that you have a school email account is for you to ask your teachers about school related assignments and issues.
