The ease of communicating, sharing, and interacting online creates many opportunities for both positive and negative experiences. Being a good digital citizen is really an extension of our conduct and behavior from face to face interactions to the very keys we type in our digital environments. What we express online should mirror the expressions offline. If we wouldn't say it to a person's face, we wouldn't write it. The importance of maintaining this perspective is key.
- Students will learn what are the most common online environments to interact with/in at home and at school.
- Students will communicate consistently online as they are expected to offline, in line with school and/or curricular values.
- Students will draft a code of conduct to sign, observe, and honour when interacting online.
- Students will be able to respond appropriately when encountering online behavior that is either hurtful or inappropriate.
In order to form positive online relationships, it is important that we are aware of what the most common environments are in which the specific group(s) regularly reside and interact.
What are the most common online environments of your peer group?
1) Create a Google Form to poll your select group:
Here is an example of a form/survey:
For a quick glance at your group's preferences, poll the group by having each person volunteer their five most visited social media sites and interactive online environments. You will need to designate one person to enter the information as electronic text and then ensure format is uniform when entering the data (ie. 'Facebook' should be represented this exact way from each person).
