NETIQUETTE Middle School and High School
NETIQUETTE: THE CORRECT OR ACCEPTABLE WAY OF COMMUNICATING ON THE INTERNET Students are digital natives but they may not be aware of digital citizenship.
SOCIAL MEDIA Communication between teens is done more and more through social media. The idea of having an electronic copy of what they said or posted is a foreign concept to many of them. Colleges and employers may use social media to investigate applicants.
SOCIAL MEDIA RULES: DON’T BE A JERK Don’t post unflattering or rude pictures of others Don’t post something you wouldn’t say to someone in real life Don’t be a cyber bully Don’t post something private or personal Don’t let emotion rule your posts Don’t call names Would you do what you did on social media in front of your grandma?
EMAILS Address the person you are emailing respectfully Students may not use email now but chances are they will at college or in future careers Use a concise subject line Proofread before you send ALL CAPS MEANS YOU ARE YELLING! Never reply to a message when you are angry Emoticons help clarify feelings
BLOGGING (EDMODO, SCHOOLWIRES) Proofread what you write Read other posts before you post Blogging is a part of educational practices, whether students respond to a class blog, create their own blog, or read a blog. Don’t attack or troll Stay calm (anger is not your friend) If in a public blog, do not use your full name Understand your audience and respond accordingly
