  1. Netiquette • for the online middle school classroom (Please use a mouse-click on each slide to advance) by Kris Mesler

  2. Be happy! • Have a positive attitude when you begin online communications • Use meaningful subject lines in your messages to make your topic clear • There is a real person on the other end of your message. Be considerate and respectful. Treat others as you would like to be treated [smile]

  3. don’t disappoint others • Check your facts before you post • Refrain from forwarding any spam mail or chain letters [frown]

  4. the place for humor • Humor can add much to a conversation • Be careful when interjecting humor. Keep a professional image by limiting humor and using a “wink” or “smile” emoticon when appropriate [wink]

  5. no one likes surprises • Contact the receiver before you send an extra large file • Check that attached files are virus-free before sending [surprised]

  6. that makes me mad! • When you type in all caps, YOU ARE “YELLING”AT THE RECIPIENT • Don’t steal other people’s work • Refrain from “flaming,” meaning making derogatory or inflammatory comments about others • If a message makes you angry, cool down before you respond [angry]

  7. Hmmm... • If you are not sure the recipient will “get” your humor, leave it out • Should you use an emoticon? For classwork? No/Maybe Personal communication? Yes [undecided]

  8. what do you do next? • New to a forum? Introduce yourself first before commenting • Joining a discussion thread midstream? “Lurk” first to see what is happening, which means reading others’ posts first before adding your own [ambivalent]

  9. What to say • You operate in a global community. Choose your words carefully • Use a professional vocabulary, leaving slang and profanity out of the message [tongue-tied]

  10. wasting time • Save time and bandwidth by only quoting parts of an email in your reply • Keep your messages concise, meaning short and to the point [bored]

  11. have no regrets • Avoid replying instantaneously before thinking it through • Once you’ve posted, it is permanent and can be forwarded to others. Re-read your posts before sending [bummed out]

  12. you said what? • If you don’t understand a message you receive, ask for clarification • Emotional intent is hard to determine in a message. Use emoticons sparingly • Use of acronyms (i.e. LOL) is acceptable as long as it is defined the first time and it is used in an appropriate forum [mixed up]

  13. what do they want? • If someone contacts you that you do not really know, protect yourself by not releasing personal information [skeptical]

  14. don’t put others down • Sarcasm may be fun for the message writer, but the receiver may not appreciate it • An example: “Jake has Van Gogh’s ear for music.” [sarcastic]

  15. there’s a right time • For silliness • For clowning around • For smirking • For hugs and kisses [silly] [clowning] [smirk] [hug and kiss]

  16. Following these basic guidelines will make the online experience an enjoyable one for all involved.Have fun! Tggr Production 2010
