Cyber Safety

Technology is a large part of children's lives at home and at school from an early age. At Aureus, our students have access to technology that they use in all areas of the curriculum including: interactive white boards, video walls, PCs and Google Chromebooks. We will educate our community on how to stay safe online throughout the year and across our curriculum.

Internet Safety

It is always good to be cautious while on the Internet. There are people in the cyber world who want to do harm to you or your computer. These are some good tips to keep in mind while you are surfing:

  • Be careful about what you put on the web.
  • It is on there forever and can be used to trace back to you at any time.
  • Keep track of who you interact with on the internet.
  • Some people may not be who they seem to be.
  • Know that privacy is just an illusion.
  • Even personal information on social networks can be easily recovered by anyone.
  • Do not open any links in emails or chat rooms that look suspicious or unfamiliar.
  • Never open any strange files that your computer may have downloaded from an email or a website.

Cyber Bullying

Whether it is posting public pictures, social statuses, or personal messages, cyber bullying takes many forms. The most popular cyber bullying tactics are:

  • Flaming
  • Harrassment
  • Denigration
  • Impersonation
  • Outing
  • Trickery
  • Exclusion
  • Cyber Stalking


Identity Theft

While there are many ways for your identity to get stolen, the easiest way to become a victim of identity theft is by sharing personal information over the Internet. If you are not careful, criminals could steal your identity by finding any of the following:

  • Bank details
  • Personal identification
  • Passwords

Plagiarism

Plagiarism is the "wrongful appropriation" and "stealing and publication" of another author's "language, thoughts, ideas, or expressions" and the representation of them as one's own original work. It is considered as academic dishonesty and a breach of ethics. Is subject to sanctions like penalties, suspension, and even exclusion depending on the extent of the breach.
Examples:

  • Failing to put a quotation in quotation marks.
  • Giving incorrect information about the source of a quotation.
  • Claiming someone else's work as your own.
  • Changing words but copying the sentence structure of a source without giving credit.
  • Copying words or ideas from someone else without giving credit.
  • Having the majority of your work come from a specific source, whether you give credit or not.
  • Misplacing a citation in your work.

Computer Viruses

Always be careful when downloading files off of the internet and make sure you are downloading files from a trusted source. Viruses must be executed to have any effect on your computer, so there are a couple of file types that have no chance of containing a virus. These files are predominantly sound, image, and text file types.
