As students engage in activity, the educator leads them through some of the strategies that can help them form a personal code of ethics, first general strategies and then strategies specific to the digital age. This can be done individually, in small groups, or in whole-group instruction.
Research on ethical behavior among students is complex and shifting rapidly in response to the new challenges that information and communications technologies bring; spending time researching and considering the values, principles, and behaviors appropriate for our times is helpful, especially when these principles can be tested in real life situations where the appropriate ethical behavior may not be so obvious.

Please submit work examples from two students (such as links to writing, audio, images, video, and other media) that demonstrate progress toward the ethical behavior competency, including items such as evidence of discussions about ethical principles and behaviors, examples of the codes of ethical behaviors the students developed, evidence of improvements in students’ ethical behavior, examples of how their social behavior has improved from their work on forming and using ethical codes of behavior, and other relevant items.
For the two students whose work examples were included above, submit student-created reflections on their experience of the ethical behavior activities. Use the following questions as a guide (200-word limit for each reflection):
