Specific Questions we will focus on throughout lesson:  What is the worst case of digital etiquette you have experienced?  What was your first thought about how to react to the question above?  Did you react with your first thought, or did you react to the situation differently?  If an adult reaction could get you into more trouble, why is it important for us, as teachers, to teach our students about proper digital etiquette?  Students of today’s generation are up-to-date with the language of texting (TTYL, LOL, GR8…). Is it appropriate to allow our students to use the texting language in the classroom? o When would it be appropriate? o When would it be inappropriate?  Hypothetical Question (choose one): o How is digital etiquette different from regular etiquette? o Are there any rules I should follow when I’m using social networking sites? Once we have discussed the finer points of the BrainPOP video, we will take the quiz at the end of the video. The students will all see the same questions and vote on what they believe the answer is. We will discuss the answers regardless of correct or incorrect response. The teacher must be aware of good digital etiquette among the students in the classroom. TEACHING TIPS Students will be made aware of what digital etiquette expectations are in the classroom before the lesson begins.
