Editorial description(s):

From School Library Journal
Johnson's "3 P's of Technology Ethics," Privacy, Property, and a(P)propriate use, are effectively and excitingly addressed through both discussion and instructional scenarios. An introductory overview contrasts similar ethical situations encountered in the physical and digital world, highlighting how easily we can fool ourselves into rationalizing online behavior we would never countenance in our daily life. Sidebar exercises focus on necessary considerations, such as online codes kids use, need-to-know terminology, and vital vocabulary differentiations of loaded and legal terms. Johnson's Ten Commandments of Computer Ethics set the stage for the three main chapters, each of which focuses on one of the 3 P's and includes a section defining and presenting ethical and legal considerations, followed by 12 scenarios as well as discussion questions. Combined, the 36 one-page scenarios provide a wide range of situations, questions, and comments. The final section zeroes in on what teachers and parents must do to promote ethical behaviors and includes sample guidelines and rules, 16 detailed suggestions for designing LPP projects (Low Probability of Plagiarism), and a research question rubric. The 40 pages of appendixes include discussion-provoking ethics questionnaires, sample policies and use agreements, Web-page creation guidelines, and plagiarism guidelines.
