In these days of burst tech bubbles, corporate greed, and outrageous spam mail claims, how do we sort what's true and what's not? Dr. Mary Ann Bell of the Sam Houston State University Library School has come to the rescue. In her excellent site she has developed pages addressing cyber ethics.
Included is a fantastic page on hoax websites. How many students just jump onto the Internet looking for information to complete a report? Do they know how to evaluate the site? Don't miss the Aluminum Foil Deflector Beanie. There is a link to a real hate site that at first glance appears to be a tribute site to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Also included are a list of Ten Commandments for computer use and teaching tips.
Internet & Computer Ethics for Kids: (and Parents & Teachers Who Haven't Got a Clue.)
A colorful, extensively illustrated book written in an easy to understand, non-technical format. No other book has been specifically targeted at non-technical parents, teachers and kids who are in the greatest need of ethical education on issues they donít understand.
Computer Network Security and Cyber Ethics
