Mission #3

Imagine creating your very own digital citizen superhero who uses their super power to make the Internet a safe place to explore and learn new things. Your superhero will need to have special powers to  take a stand against flamers, trolls, phisherman, spammers, hackers, plagiarists, digital pirates, and cyberbullys, to name a few

Superheroes call foul when they see it. If someone is being cruel or disrespectful online a superhero can tell them it's wrong, and help them understand why their actions may hurt others. Sometimes when people are online they forget that others can't see their facial expressions or hear the tone of their voice. That makes it difficult to tell they were only joking. So, even when the intent is not to hurt it may be perceived as hurtful  by others online. 

If someone is just being plain rude and nasty a Superhero can coach others to ignore it. If the bully doesn't get a reaction then it's just a waste of their time and they may move on. 

If an online community is being attacked by flamers, trolls, and cyberbullies, a Superhero Digital Citizen may request the attackers be blocked from the community.

Superhero Digital citizens protect honest online citizens. Knowledge is power so, use all you've learned about Netiquette; the rules for how to behave online, to create a digital citizen superhero who rights the wrongs and teaches others how to be safe, respectful, and responsible online.

On this mission you'll plan and develop your very own Superhero Digital Citizen. You can earn up to 120 XP if you complete the 4 challenges!
