Why Kids Must Be Taught Digital Manners Infographic


Teaching students the importance of having and using manners is nothing new to teachers. However, what has changed is the type of etiquette kids needs today—namely, the digital kind. True, please, thank you and excuse me are still significant, but in addition to these basics, students growing up in this ever-connected, social media crazed world require much more. Concepts such as online privacy, sharing and creating a positive digital footprint through the demonstration of responsible online behaviors are just as vital.

Check out the infographic shown below explaining why students should be taught appropriate digital citizenship skills.

Be sure to use the embedded tools to zero in on the details.

A shout out to EverFi, an educational platform that teaches students critical life skills, for creating this useful infographic and to Techi, an online resource for all things technology, for sharing it!

Classroom Connection:

OK, so we all know that modern-day technology provides us with many benefits. At the same time, 24/7 instant access to information can also be problematic. By acknowledging this dichotomy exists, we—as educators—have the unique opportunity to encourage our students to behave in a responsible way when engaged in online activities—one that can ensure protecting their reputation—now and in the future!

That said, use this infographic as the basis of a discussion and/or lesson on digital responsibility.

By the way, infographics can make really neat classroom posters too! Use the Block Posters web tool to create your very own!
