Cyberethics: Envisioning Character Education in Cyberspace
Whittier, David B.
Peabody Journal of Education, v88 n2 p225-242 2013
This article presents theory and research forming the framework of a graduate course in cyberethics education. The course content includes theory and research on the psychology of the Internet, moral development, and character education. Discussion includes application of these constructs to issues such as empathy, privacy, and other issues as they appear in cyberspace. Core virtues and analyses through ethical theories provide the moral framework for the course and ground it in character education as it has emerged from the physical world. I also briefly present the course curriculum prompting teacher's lesson plans for teaching cyberethics.
