Rules vs norms - 2 views

  • Rules are made by authority figures.
  • They are not easily changed. People for whom rules are made are not involved in the process of establishing them. They are also not allowed to question the rules or the authority figures.
  • rules are made to be obeyed, not to be discussed or challenged

  • norms affect everyone in the classroom
  • rules often induce a spirit of disobedience.
  • The norms agreed upon by students make sense to them. They appear to be ideal for harmonious and optimised functioning for academic purposes.
  • Norms, while seemingly flimsy, possess greater power to elicit positive classroom compliance.
  • Effective classroom norms should be few, well-considered, enforced consistently, fair and student-centred.
  •  
    Although they are used interchangeably on many occasions, the terms "rules" and "norms" have different meanings and hence yield different outcomes in a classroom setting.

    Found this interesting article when struggling with the concept of rules vs. norms in building a virtual classroom.

Rule 1 -- The Core Rules of Netiquette -- Excerpted from Netiquette by Virginia Shea --... - 7 views

  • Would you say it to the person's face?
    • Shavonne Bauer
       
      How true this is. If you were communicating face to face would you do this? Always keep this in mind when on the Internet.
  • When you communicate through cyberspace -- via email or on discussion groups -- your words are written. And chances are they're stored somewhere where you have no control over them. In other words, there's a good chance they can come back to haunt you.
    • Shavonne Bauer
       
      In other words, be prepared to explain what you have written online.

      It's a good idea to assume that everything you write online is saved in a database somewhere and can be retrieved at any time by anyone. This includes course management systems!

    online etiquette
  •  
    Shea, the "network manners guru" and a student of human nature, reminds all online users to remember to use proper netiquette when conversing online. Her book is written for all users of the Internet. She states behind every computer screen is a human being. Unlike the computers they are working on, these human beings have feelings. She reminds people to remember this especially when conversing with one another through email. Unfortunately, she writes, since people are writing online they feel the right to say almost anything they wish without regard to the consequences when doing it through email. However, it is pointed out this is not an acceptable practice in the computer world. She provides a simple test to use each time an email is composed to check for proper netiquette - would this be said to another person's face? If the answer is yes, then it is safe to send. On the other hand, if the answer is no revising is necessary until the answer is yes. Her final concluding point reminds everyone what is written and sent remains a permanent record since it can be saved by someone, stored somewhere or forwarded thus saved forever. So remember, is this something you want remembered?
