Online world through an ethical lens

Your takeaway at the end of this lesson: enough vocabulary and well-managed ideas to confidently spark a conversation about Online Ethics and Etiquette.

Internet psychologist Graham Jones believes that in the real world we monitor the behavior of others and subconsciously adapt our own behavior according to what we see. This is the missing piece of the puzzle when we are online. Online communications lack this feedback mechanism.

People are usually more rude and forthright online, because they think their anonymity and invisibility help them run away scot-free. Garry Crawford, Professor of Sociology says that it has always been easier to be bold or blunt in a letter than “it is in face-to-face communication. Trolling is to an extent, a digital version of a poison pen letter”.

The problem is that the speed of online communications at which people lash out at each other doesn’t leave out a second for reflection or self-censorship. Can we learn to consider the consequences of our heat-of-the-moment remarks and aggressive actions online? Let’s talk more about it.
