Be A Responsible Digital Citizen

Be A Responsible Digital Citizen

The Anglican High School (AHS) Young Leaders in collaboration with the Ministry of Social Development took on an excellent initiative on March 20th, by staging a walk through the streets of St. George to raise awareness of the dangers of digital citizenship. 

Three schools accompanied the AHS on the walk, all displaying placards portraying very important messages pertaining to the Theme, “Digital Citizen Responsibly Navigating Technology.”

Grenada Informer spoke to Public Relations Officer Ebony Prince & President Micah Andall of the AHS Young Leaders about the aim of their walk, which emphasized the harmful impact of negative practices such as cyber bullying, sexting, plagiarism etc. when using the Internet inappropriately. 

They stressed that students need to remember that their online actions can and will have serious consequences offline and they must think before they press the send button.

They are also intent on educating the general public by promoting awareness of ways people use the Internet incorrectly. They stated that at the end of the walk they hope citizens will realize that what they put on the Internet may not affect them now but later in life they can be adversely affected. 

 Minister of Social Development & Housing Delma Thomas commended the students for taking on such a bold initiative in promoting Digital Citizenship, displaying positive use of the Internet for young people and the public in general and also for their partnering with the ministry on Juvenile Delinquency programs. 

She referred to recent instances of the negative impact that Internet posting can have on young persons. 

 Director of Social Development Ms. Veronica Charles also spoke to the Grenada Informer in support of the AHS School Young Leaders. She said they are encouraging students to use the Internet wisely as a mentoring tool that will uplift them and they will be able to encourage other students as well.
