I have partnered up with Beverly Hills Manners to teach a very important class to teens and tweens on netiquette and how to handle themselves online. I am very very excited about this class and cannot wait to see some of you there! I thought this would be a perfect thing to post on New Years day, this would be a great family New Year’s resolution.
Teen Online Manners Course Description
Beverly Hills Manners™ has joined forces with Vanessa Van Petten, book author and writer of a blog on parent-teen relationships, to offer a specialized program on “Netiquette”. “Netiquette” is a term that has been used to define all of the guidelines that assist us with online communication. It provides general rules of protocol for such technologies as emailing, blogging, texting, social networking and all other forms of new technologies for communicating. Learn how to navigate online communication tools and the most appropriate ways of maintaining a positive online image.
