Homework: Instant Messaging

This weekend’s homework is to engage in some social networking – and bring to school a copy of the results, in the form of a transcript of one of your instant messaging conversations.

In today’s lesson we also touched on the importance of maintaining high standards of personal integrity and respect for people’s privacy – even in the online world where a lot can be concealed through anonymity and avatar.

Whatever transcript you bring, all participants must have given their permission for its use.

Have fun with it – but be good men, too.
