2 Why Digital Citizenship? In society today, people are citizens in the physical community and cyber citizens in the Internet cyber community. 5/1/2015The American School of Tampico2

3 A Definition of Digital Citizenship Digital Citizenship can be defined as the norms of behavior with regard to technology use. 5/1/2015The American School of Tampico3

4 Etiquette or Netiquette Electronic standards of conduct or procedure. The set of informal rules of behavior that have evolved in cyberspace, including the Internet and Online Services. 5/1/2015The American School of Tampico4

5 The golden rule. When you communicate electronically, all you see is a computer screen. You don't have the opportunity to use facial expressions, gestures, and tone of voice to communicate your meaning. Ask yourself, "Would I say this to the person's face?“ To add personality humor to your messages, use smileys, also known as emoticons. 5/1/2015The American School of Tampico5 Rule 1: Remember the human

6 Rule 2: Adhere to the same standards of behavior online that you follow in real life Be ethical. If you encounter an ethical dilemma in cyberspace, consult the code you follow in real life. Apply the law. If you use shareware, pay for it. Netiquette mandates that you do your best to act within the laws of society and cyberspace. 5/1/2015The American School of Tampico6

7 Rule 3: Know where you are in cyberspace “When in Rome do as the Romans do” When you enter a domain of cyberspace that's new to you… 1. Take a look around. 2. Spend a while listening to the chat or reading the archives. 3. Get a sense of how the people who are already there act. 4. Then go ahead and participate. 5/1/2015The American School of Tampico7

8 Rule 4: Respect other people's time and bandwidth When you send email or post to a discussion group, you're taking up other people's time. When you accidentally send something you are wasting both time and bandwidth. Don't expect instant responses to all your questions, and don't assume that all readers will agree with you. 5/1/2015The American School of Tampico8

9 Rule 5: Make yourself look good online You will be judged by the quality of your writing. Spelling and grammar do count. Know what you're talking about and make sense. Make sure your notes are clear and logical. Be pleasant and polite. When sending e-mail, make sure that the subject line accurately describes what the message is about. 5/1/2015The American School of Tampico9

10 Rule 6: Share expert knowledge. The strength of cyberspace is in its numbers. The Internet itself was founded and grew because scientists wanted to share information. Gradually, the rest of us got in on the act. The Net is growing quickly, and it's difficult to keep up. Don't be afraid to share what you know. Sharing your knowledge is fun. It's a long-time net tradition. And it makes the world a better place. 5/1/2015The American School of Tampico10

11 Rule 7: Help keep flame wars under control Does Netiquette forbid flaming? Not at all. Flames can be lots of fun, both to write and to read. Netiquette does forbid the perpetuation of flame wars, series of angry letters, most of them from two or three people directed toward each other, that can dominate the tone and destroy the camaraderie of a discussion group. 5/1/2015The American School of Tampico11

12 Rule 8: Respect other people's privacy It includes passwords, full names, addresses, interests, files or equipment. 5/1/2015The American School of Tampico12 Rule 9: Don't abuse your power Some people in cyberspace have more power than others. There are wizards and experts in every place.

13 Rule 10: Be forgiving of other people's mistakes Everyone was a network newbie once. Whether it's a spelling error or a spelling flame, a simple question or an unnecessarily long answer - be kind about it. Having good manners yourself doesn't give you license to correct everyone else. If you do decide to inform someone of a mistake, point it out politely, and preferably by private email. Give people the benefit of the doubt; assume they just don't know any better. Never be arrogant or self-righteous about it. 5/1/2015The American School of Tampico13

14 Remember: Digital behavior makes everyone a role model. 5/1/2015The American School of Tampico14
