Social media is a whole new universe when it comes to manners and etiquette. Manners used to be something that happened in person, but today we conduct many of our relationships online and the rules and courtesies can be a little unclear. Many schools throughout the country are struggling with creating uniform practices for teaching social media manners and etiquette.
Many schools can play a critical role in teaching online etiquette and finding educational resources to teach this can be difficult. Learning ZoneXpress understands these difficulties and that is why we have produced “Social Media Manners: Polite Behavior in the Social Media DVD”. This educational video addresses the general manners guidelines for cell phone use, text messaging, email, and social media websites and apps like Facebook or Twitter.
Teachable segments include:
- The 4 Guidelines
- Mobile Manners
- Social Media
- Final Advice
Social media can be valuable in many ways, but children need guidance and supervision to develop good social media habits. They are less likely to understand the importance of social media etiquette and safety when they’re left to figure it out on their own. We hope that this video helps you teach these valuable lessons.
Please share the lessons you’ve taught in the comments below. We would love to share them with other teachers and schools.
