If people knew how to spell correctly in essay writing those skill will then transfer to the internet. Your statement, "we all ready now how to talk on the internet with email and AIM we dont need to teach it in school." would look more like, We already know how to talk on the internet with e-mail and AIM. We don't need to teach it in school. I agree with your statement. Teachers should focus on academics. The computer teacher should teach any internet skills and typing.
I disagree with the post that "we all ready now how to talk on the internet..." . I'm not sure who posted that, but students may know how to talk to each other, but in my experience they do not know how to use email/chat, etc....in a professional or academic setting. These are the new communication tools of the professional world, and they are so easy to use that they are easy to abuse.
I also find that most teachers don't communicate very well by email. It can make all the difference in a good/bad school year for my child. Last year's teacher always responded to emails withing 1-2 days. This year our teacher says she reads emails but never responds. It has a been a confusing and stressful year for all because she is also not available much by phone or in person.
I think this type of communication training should be mandatory for teachers, and introduced to students beginning in 6th grade.
we all ready now how to talk on the internet with email and aim we dont need to teach it in school.
Are you just talking about proper grammer or writing? Or are you talking about being cautious and smart on the internet period? There is so much stuff that is not even legitimate, that they need to know how to validate a source on the internet more than they need to know how to be nice, that comes naturally from their peers, if they are not considerate they do not have friends.
I do think is important for schools to teach Netiquette. We use computers everyday, and students should learn at an early age. Students should learn that computers and texting are different and there are rules for both.
I agree with you!It drives me crazy when I get an email or text from someone with a whole slew of misspelling and errors in them! I think it is important to teach correct writing skill in all genres of writing!
I think schools should teach Netiquette. We rely so much on computers that we need to start teaching children how to communicate via computer. They need to know how to use proper grammar when communicating via computer. Many are so used to using text talk, that they don't know that it is not appropriate in computer talk.
I think it is very important to teach students netiquette. I say this because kids are kids and you need to model what is cosidered appropriate. I know many parents still are not too computer savy so it's up to teachers to show them how to properly communicate online.
I think that is essential to train our students to effectively communicate in all areas. So many new professionals are unsure of how to communicate properly via email. As we become more reliant on technology it is vital that we prepare students to be prepared to be successful in those arenas.
You have the "Hail Mary" pass on that one! It's a touchdown.
