Our 5th and Final TechSafe Lesson is on Civil Communication. How can we communicate with civility online? When we talk about our personal beliefs and politics, passions can run high — especially when we’re online. These intense moments can often lead to tit-for-tat insults, or worse. But, if addressed calmly and coolly, they can be an opportunity to find common ground and deeper understanding. We need to keep disagreements civil so our ideas will be heard and we can advocate for positive change.

People often use the phrase “the power of the internet.” What do you think they mean by that?

I THINK THEY MEAN Access to information, Communicating with large amounts of people in real-time, and Connecting with others emotionally through photos, videos, and other digital media.

There can also be challenges to communicating online. Watch this short video featuring Cameron Kasky, a student that survived the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland in 2018. After the shooting he became an outspoken advocate for gun reform. In the video, he shares experiences using the power of the internet to communicate his message. https://youtu.be/pQPdwHsJ25I

Have a Great Weekend Warriors!
