Respecting community norms when expressing opinions in web discussions
Here we tried to get at the idea that different spaces have different discourses. We went with community norms not to sound wonky. Participation means respecting those norms.
Discourses of different groups are how we shape our identities.
Managing and shaping online identities
There was a lot of debate early on whether identity should be its own competency. I am glad we did not go that route.
Identities and literacies can not be separated. We project our identities out into the world and the world projects back on us.
In many ways though Privacy is a subset of identity rather than the way we represent it. Still I will take it. especially since we are talking about web literacy.
You are an active agent who encodes and decodes meaning on the world. Use these tools to empower yourself and others.
