Short blog — hopefully lots of conversation…
I’m on my way out again for a number of gigs due west of here (Raleigh). Among them with be an information ethcis summit I’ll be working with in San Francisco, sponsored by CTAP and Yahoo.
When I am talking about contemporary literacy to audiences, nothing causes so many heads to bob up and down in agreement as when I insist that ethics needs to be part of the basic information/literacy skills that we teach our children. I do not spend nearly enough time on this topic, but have tried to break it down into four basic concepts.
- Respect for intellectual property (copyright, etc.)
- Respect for intellectual integrity (respect truth)
- Respect for each other (cause no harm)
- Respect for the information infrastructure
What do these mean to you? What have I left out?
