Driving:Driving while distracted is dangerous. 16% of all fatal crashes are caused by driver distraction. Almost 50% of teens admit to texting while driving. Classroom:The key problems teachers have with unsanctioned cell phone use in schools include: Sending friends text messages during class time. Sending or receiving test answers. Bullying or harassment via unwanted text messaging. Taking and distributing inappropriate digital photos of students.Despite rules prohibiting cell phone use, teachers report that it is the number one classroom management issue they deal with in high school.Writing Skills:Teachers have begun to see texting lingo incorporated into classroom writing.
Texting Etiquette:Adults should set a good example for children. Parents should not text when it is not appropriate: while driving, at the dinner table, when they should be focusing on what they are doing, etc. Teens should learn that the rules for using your phone are the same whether you are making a phone call or texting. If you are in a place that you would not make a phone call from, then you should not be texting either.Parents need to be especially diligent when talking to their children about texting while driving. Teens who are distracted while driving are much more likely to have an accident. Incorporating texting into classroom activities: Texting is an important way, if not the most important way, that teens communicate. Teachers can take advantage of this and use it as a tool for teaching. Texting is a good way to teach summarizing, for example. Many phones have internet access and can be used for research and other online activities related to school. Text polls and other group response activities can engage students.Writing skills: Teach students that texting abbreviations are not acceptable for formal writing. Teach students when those abbreviations are acceptable, such as writing an outline.

Twitter Etiquette Guidelines A complete bio and avatar picture is always a good idea. We want to know who you are. (inspired by Kendra). It’s helpful to be transparent about your work/employer in your profile, if your use of Twitter has any implications for your day job. (from Eden Spodek) Face to face you get a sense of how your idea is being received. No such thing on Twitter. So play nice. (from Carolyn Stephens) Be yourself. It is ok and welcome to be different on twitter. (from Sudha Jamthe) It’s okay to follow people you don’t know on Twitter. They can choose whether or not to follow you back. It’s okay to unfollow people on Twitter. Unfollowing doesn’t automatically mean “I don’t like you.” There are many other reasons. It’s okay to @reply someone a question or comment vs direct message, especially if it’s an idea where others might weigh in or add a perspective. It’s better to direct message someone if you’re making 1:1 plans or having a very focused, personal conversation. It’s not polite to direct message people you don’t know well with your automated quiz results or similar. It’s great that YOU like those quizzed, but others see it as spam.
Twitter Etiquette Guidelines cont. Most folks don’t like seeing those “I just used whateveryoucallit.com to gain 300 new followers right now!” services. – (from Steve Woodruff). Some people are not a fan of auto reply messages that are sent in direct messages when someone follows you on Twitter. They (and by “they,” I also mean “I”) consider these robot behavior. Promoting others and talking with others is a great way to show your participation to the community. Only blurting out your information and links doesn’t usually come off as friendly or community-minded. Tim O’Reilly suggests that @replies have lots of detail in them, so that others picking up the conversation can understand the response (example: turn “yes” into “Yes, I really love the new G.I. Joe movie.” It’s okay to follow people you don’t know on Twitter. They can choose whether or not to follow you back. It’s okay to unfollow people on Twitter. Unfollowing doesn’t automatically mean “I don’t like you.” There are many other reasons. It’s okay to @reply someone a question or comment vs direct message, especially if it’s an idea where others might weigh in or add a perspective. It’s better to direct message someone if you’re making 1:1 plans or having a very focused, personal conversation.
Twitter Etiquette Guidelines cont. You don’t have to read every tweet. You don’t have to respond to every @mention. You aren’t obligated to reply to every direct message. If someone direct messages you and you find that you cant message them back because he or she isn’t following you, a simple @reply stating, “I went to send you a direct message back but you’re not currently following me” is good manners. – (inspired by Kendra However, the more you can respond, the more people tend to stay with you and build relationships. When retweeting other people’s works, it’s okay to truncate a bit to be able to retweet. Please preserve the link and also the original person’s Twitter name. When retweeting someone else’s retweet, it’s sometimes okay to drop the secondary source and just retweet the original poster of the information.
Twitter Etiquette Guidelines cont. If you’re running a customer service Twitter account, it’s polite to follow back the people following you. (from Ted Coine). Unless you have the author’s consent, it also may be unwise to pull from another feed stream, like mybloglog, and place the information into the twitter stream (from WWAHHMpreneur) Swearing/cursing might well be bad etiquette, and feels like swearing loudly in a public place. (from BizyBiz) . Pitching your blog might not be the next best move directly after a follow. (inspired by cherylandonian) Don’t get hung up on the numbers, that’s not what matters. Its a case of who you know not how many you know. (from Justin Parks) People might unfollow you if you tweet excessively (from Chloe Wilkinson) It’s OK to actively BLOCK followers you don’t want following you. – (from Bonnie Lowe) Check your links before you tweet them! (from Sure)
Issues Sometimes there are glaring errors, such as misspellings and very poor grammar. A prospective employer might think negative when receiving a poorly written message. Because your correspondence says a lot about you, you should be aware of some basic email etiquette, sometimes known as netiquette.
Prevention You should keep e-mails short and to the point. Always write the action you are requesting and topic in the ’subject’ line. Be sure you check your grammar and spelling
Prevention Remember that e-mail is not private and can be shared or sent to any amount of people. Be courteous, considerate and responsible when writing an e-mail message. Keep your computer virus free; no one wants to open a something that can potentially crash their computer.
Examples Dear Boss, Im sry that I was late. It was bc of traffic, it won’t happen again. BTW I brought you coffee. =)Example of an unprofessional email
Example Boss, ILL BE SURE TO SUBMIT MY WORK BY 5:00 PM.
