The Digital Resources and Netiquette quest chronicles the code of behavior that a community expects its citizens to follow.
The written and unwritten rules of conduct aid people in groups to work more smoothly. Etiquette is important, because it shows respect, which, in turn, builds trust. Digital Etiquette is sometimes referred to as Netiquette, or a basic set of rules digital citizens follow in order to make online communication and interactions better for everyone. By practicing good digital etiquette, online users demonstrate good digital citizenship.
In face-to-face meetings, it is important to treat people with courtesy and respect. And, it is just as important to treat others with courtesy and respect online, too. For example, when a person sends an instant message, chat, or email others, the recipient does not see facial expressions. As such, he or she may not be able to decide if the message is sincere or in jest. Strong Digital Citizens should always treat others with courtesy and respect.
Creating a digital version of a DOs and DON’Ts list detailing acceptable/unacceptable behaviors.
Consider the focus of the Digital Resources and Netiquette quest. Then, take a moment to recall strategies for promoting civility among and respect for others in an online environment. Once strategies have been established, create a digital resource that encapsulates the types of respectful attitudes and behaviors appreciated and necessary for civility in a digital learning community. The finished product may come in one or more of the following forms:
The digital version of the finished product should be available online. Once the work has been created and saved, be sure to have a link or embed code for sharing with colleagues and fellow participants.
