Workspace Etiquette for Teachers and Students


Please note that the online world has its own protocol for communicating in a professional manner. 

BCPS students and teachers are bound by the Teacher and Student Acceptable Use Policies. 


Wiki Etiquette for your Workspace


1. Be safe.

Never post your personal information or information about someone else. DO NOT put things like ages, addresses, phone numbers, or names of towns on the Internet. Remember that information on the internet, especially embarrassing information, may still be around after you've deleted it. So don’t ever put up anything personal or inappropriate! Check out I Keep Safe Kids for more information. 


2. Be nice.

May seem elementary, but the most important thing to remember is sarcasm hurts. It is most often misunderstood when typed in a message which is then posted on the Internet. You may think you're funny when you write something rude or silly, but it can be extremely hurtful to read. Negative words hurt worse when said by someone you thought was your friend. So, be overly friendly and be positive. Remember... treat others as you would like to be treated.


3. Be truthful.

Write things you know to be correct using facts from research from reliable, credible sources.


*Read, re-read, and proofread before you click SAVE or ADD COMMENT. 

It’s important to reread to make sure you’ve really written down what you wanted to say so we can communicate clearly with one another.
