Chalk Talk: How to Teach Students Social Media Etiquette
Believe it or not, social media etiquette can be just as important as that mathematical theorem you’re trying to teach your students. For young adolescents and older teenagers, being social is a major component of development. Today, technology allows people to be connected, constantly, and this attraction for teenagers is irresistible. Many teachers understand that their students need to be social, but what happens when a Facebook spat permeates the classroom? Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, and Facebook have changed the landscape of interpersonal communication. What was once shared through letters and telephone conversations is now displayed for everyone to see. The anonymity of these tools makes people “say” things they wouldn’t otherwise. So what can teachers (and parents) do to curb this behavior? Teach social media etiquette! It’s not easy, but taking time out of busy daily schedules for this discussion is necessary. The first way to approach the subject is through the concept of permanency. Use analogies, like toothpaste; once the toothpaste is out, it cannot go back in. Words work in the same manner.
