An Ethics Whirlwind: A Perspective of the Digital Lifestyle of Digital Natives and Initial Thoughts on Ethics Education in Technology
Hall, Brian R.
Information Systems Education Journal, v10 n1 p4-12 Feb 2012
As digital natives continue rolling onto college campuses around the country, the questions surrounding digital ethics grow. Students do not know life without modern technology, computers, mobile devices, the Internet and their lifestyle has developed around this mass. Unlike their predecessors, they do not recognize a difference between the digital space and the real world. They are one-in-the-same. Yet, the connection between digital actions and real-life consequences is often unrecognized. This is mainly due to the fundamental lack of proper moral code education and application. This paper is a presentation of data collected on students' digital behavior and initial thoughts on the issues surrounding digital ethics education.
