The Central Asian and Southern Caucasian Freedom of Expression Network has conducted a seminar for about 40 teachers from different regions of Azerbaijan. The seminar was realized on the framework of “Online ethics – netiquette” program. The participants have discussed “Observance of ethical norms in the virtual world”. The event took place at the premises of the Institute of Educational Problems of the Republic of Azerbaijan.
The chairman of CASCFEN Azer Hasret gave a speech on main topic and talked to participants about “10 Golden Rules” of conduct on virtual hemisphere. He has mentioned that Azerbaijan is quick to implement new information communication technologies, which makes necessary to enlighten people on online ethics.
“New technologies are already accessible for everyone in our country. There is no any censorship. The people can use these technologies freely, however they want. Just the Constitution of the country, or the relevant laws provide high level guarantee for the online freedom of expression as well. Naturally, everyone uses these freedoms in a wide range. But unfortunately some people misuse this free environment, disturb other users, violate their rights. That’s why we are interested in implementation of “Online ethics – netiquette” program among people of various professions”, – has said Azer Hasret.
CASCFEN chairman has noted that quick process of successful implementation of ICT in the education system makes it necessary to arrange enlightenment among people of this sector: “We see that sometimes there are people among teachers and pupils who unwittingly violate the frames of online ethics. Authors rights are violated, hate speech is used, impoliteness is wide spread. In general, the cases of negative impact on people are used, while we could prevent these appearances through relevant enlightenment”.
After hearing the main topic the participants continued with question-answers and discussions.
The participants have got a free copy of the book titled “Observance of ethical norms in the virtual world” published by CASCFEN with financial support of the State Support Council for NGOs under the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan.
The participants expressed a wish to arrange such seminars in the schools for teachers and high grade students. CASCFEN chairman Azer Hasret said that they will be happy to conduct these seminars in schools.
The Certificate of Attendance was presented to each participant at the end of seminar.
We shall note that “Online ethics – netiquette” program is implemented by CASCFEN within last 3 years with no outside support. The seminars are free of charge.
