Rules to Follow for the Tech Savy Student
Rule 1 - The Golden Rule Still Applies Online.
"Treat Others the Way You Would Want to be Treated"
When we interact with each other in person we are taught to follow the Golden Rule which is "treat others the way you would want to be treated". The same rule applies online. Good manners and courtesy are just as important online as they are in person. Behind a computer or cellphone screen, we sometimes forget that there is another person with feelings on the other side. Before you send a text, email, or instant message think to yourself "Is this something I would say in person? Would I like it if someone said it to me?" If the answer is no to both questions then it is better to not send that text, email, or instant message. "Treat others the way you would want to be treated"
