Internet Etiquette

Just like having good etiquette or manners at the dinner table (or anywhere else for that matter!) there are a set of rules when working online that one needs to adhere to. Internet etiquette or "netiquette" as it can be called is a set of rules for behaving appropriately online.

The Internet really is a great place to get information, communicate with others, and create great things, but you must be careful and follow the rules of netiquette.

Go to the Cyberbullying and Internet Safety tabs to learn more about the rules of Netiquette concerning those topics.

To read even more about online etiquette, visit Ms. Parry’s guide to correct online etiquette (Netiquette).
