An ethical approach to supporting a digital life
A brief overview of the Simulate 2 Educate approach.
Why do we need this education?
The freedom that young people today experience because of the Internet and its related products has raised numerous ethical issues surrounding personal conduct, individual privacy, perception of ownership of personal data, storage of data, third party applicants, dataveilance, employer online background checks, the taking of and ownership of images, storage of personal information, sharing of personal data, cyber bullying, sexual predation, child pornography, identity theft, real world theft and much more.
The Philosophy of the Simulate 2 Educate education
The philosophy within this education is to help the student learn to make informed ethical decisions founded on common decency and reasonable standards of right and wrong.
During the delivery of this module parents and caregivers have an important role to play. The student will bring home sets of questions that they will ask parents or caregivers. As the student will have already been introduced to the subject, including the questions and answers during class, the parent or caregiver then becomes the student, listener, debater and teacher when required.
Included in this module are resources to assist the parent or caregiver when the child brings home questions. The S2e Info-Pack includes answers for each question the child will ask the parent and valuable information to help parents or caregivers in reducing risk for the whole family when using Digital Communication Technologies.
