Slide 2:

This is not okay. In tech language, typing in all caps means you are yelling or shouting at a person. It is considered very rude to type in all caps.

Slide 3:

This is not okay. Using chat abbreviations like OMG, LOL( etc ) is fine to use with friends and family members, but is frowned upon for school assignments of any kind.( even if they are online)

Slide 4:

This is not okay. While no one likes receiving mean messages, you should never respond to a mean message that is sent to you. The person sending you the message wants to get a reaction from you. Plus, if you respond to the message with a mean message of your own, that makes you guilty of cyber bullying too! You can get in trouble for this. If you receive a mean online message, block the sender, save the message for evidence and tell a trusted adult.

Slide 5:

This is not okay. Imagine someone constantly saying things over and over again. It’s annoying!

Slide 6:

This is not okay. Your friends may not care about your spelling or grammar but in general, people do not take posts that have misspelled words or bad grammar seriously. If you want your point to be heard( or for that matter, if you want a good grade) pay attention to what you write and how you write it.

Slide 7:

Generally, it’s bad practice to send an e-mail without a subject. The subject line lets people know what your message is about and catches their attention. If you do not type a subject in the subject line, your e-mail may not get read or it may be deleted.

Slide 8:

Unless it is for a school related chat( meaning it has been set up by the school or a teacher) you should never use your real name in any chat room or forum. This can open you to being a victim of a cyber bully, cyber predator or identity theft( someone pretending to be you.) Instead, use a screen name when you are online.

Slide 9:

Texting language is for cell phone or private chat conversations. They are not to be used for school writing projects of any kind. Texting language is considered slang and therefore, is not accepted by most schools, universities or colleges.

Slide 10:

Anytime you enter a chat room, you should announce yourself. This lets people know you are joining them in the chat. You don’t have to jump into a conversation right away when you announce yourself. Lurking is considered online spying and creeps people out. Also, lurking is what cyber predators and cyber bullies do to get information about you so they can use the information to hurt you.

Slide 11:

Okay, this one may seem a bit odd to you. You may have a really cool teacher that you are close to and you want to talk to them online. However, y ou should only e-mail your teachers about school related issues. This is because many schools consider it inappropriate and unprofessional for teachers to have private online conversations with students about matters that are not related to school. In fact, many schools have policies that forbid their teachers from doing this behavior. ( Example: RPCS does) This is for the protection of the teachers and the students. ( so neither person accuses the other person of doing something wrong)

Slide 12:

Phrases are incomplete thoughts and ideas. In general, teachers want you to write/type any answers you post in complete sentences. If the teacher says it is okay to write in phrases, then you may but never assume it’s okay until you get the directions from your teacher.
