“What online rights and responsibilities means” … to i-SAFE
i-SAFE believes in order to “connect with respect” students must first be properly trained; which means both educated and empowered. Teaching students their rights as cyber citizens is an essential component for them to share the online community and coexist with other citizens around the world; then, promoting empowered students ensures a lifestyle in which they act responsibly whenever or wherever they go online, meeting anybody, navigating to any site, or confronting any unfamiliar online situations.

Right to access the Internet. Empowerment responsibility to follow parental/school guidelines for appropriate use and time restrictions.
