Blog Rules for Kids

The Rules

In working with this blog and each of our other webspaces all students need to ensure that they follow these important guidelines. They are designed to make sure that you enjoy these spaces.

• Only ever use your first name or a nickname when you are writing on this or other blogs or wikis

• Never use any other student’s last name

• Never post any personal information–such as your home phone number or home address on this or any other blog or wiki

• Never share any of you usernames or passwords with anyone and never log in as another student

• Always tell your parents or teacher right away if you come across anything that makes you feel uncomfortable

• Remember the “grandma rule” that anything you put on the internet could be read by your grandmother so only write things you could say to the nicest of grannies

• Be a good online citizen and never write or post anything that could hurt anyone else

• Always check with an adult if someone asks for your phone number or to meet you

• Never make arrangements to meet anyone over the internet without telling your parents

• Make sure you publish only your own work. Don’t under any circumstances use other people’s work and call it your own

• Make sure that you read over your writing before you post it to check the spelling and that it reads okay
