The Good, the Bad, and the Unexpected Consequences of Selfie Obsession Photographed by Dan Forbes It's easy: Flip the view on your phone and hold it at a high angle, making your eyes look bigger and your cheekbones more defined. Position your thumb over the button, turn to your best side, and click. The art of the selfie is one that lots of people have practiced and perfected in recent years. Part of the reason for their popularity? But let's be real: The most common selfie is the one where you look cute, partially because it's a quick way to get positive comments about your appearance. Sure, showing off a new outfit or that you're at a cool event is fun, but it can be a slippery slope. That could be one explanation for total selfie overload (aka when you see ten photos in a row of the same person in your feed—overkill alert!). Overall, opinions vary on whether selfie culture is lame or legit, which means it's up to you to shape the future of the habit. *Name has been changed.

Five-Minute Films "Digital citizenship" is an umbrella term that covers a whole host of important issues. Broadly, it's the guidelines for responsible, appropriate behavior when one is using technology. But specifically, it can cover anything from "netiquette" to cyberbullying; technology access and the digital divide; online safety and privacy; copyright, plagiarism, and digital law, and more. In fact, some programs that teach digital citizenship have outlined no less than nine elements that intersect to inform a well-equipped digital citizen. But while there is much talk about the importance of teaching digital citizenship in this information society, not many are sure what that really looks like.

The NetSafe Kit for Schools - NetSafe: Cybersafety and Security advice for New Zealand From text bullying to sexting, student cybersafety issues are popular stories for mass media. At a time when schools are increasingly embracing ICT in learning, such negative perceptions of ICT can hinder schools’ ability to develop 21st Century learners. The NetSafe Kit helps schools to address student cybersafety and support digital citizenship. Following expert consultation, the fourth version of the NetSafe Kit details seven steps required to produce a cybersafe learning environment with digital citizenship at its core. Digital Citizenship can be understood as the skills, knowledge, and values required to be an effective, ethical and safe user of ICT. The deregulated and complex environment produced by the internet means that we can no longer effectively “protect” young people from online challenges. Children and young people are never too young or old to start developing digital citizenship skills. Find the NetSafe Kit at More advice and information
