Students develop the capacity to understand and apply ethical and socially responsible principles when collaborating with others and creating, sharing and using technologies. They build understandings and ethical behaviours regarding privacy and intellectual property rights, such as copyright. They consider the impact of digital technologies on society, the rights of others and their responsibilities in using sustainable practices. Students learn to appreciate and value the part they play in the social systems in which they operate.
As discerning citizens, students reflect on their personal roles and responsibilities, learning to detect bias and inaccuracies. Developing understandings about the protection of data, intellectual property and individual privacy within the school environment helps students to be ethical digital global citizens.
