Cub Scouts are learning it in Port Washington. The Central Asian and Southern Caucasian Freedom of Expression Network is teaching 'virtual culture' and including the dissemination of news about war in Azerbaijin. The British Council, a UK education and culture organization, in India is teaching it in a blended course called myEnglish.
The Girl Scouts have been teaching it for many years now. They have a Netiquette badge. Internet privacy and cyber bullying are recurrent themes in these courses on different levels. Children are taught the basics. Young adults are taught the nuances.
What struck me the most were the High School students and teachers learning it together in Azerbaijin. One of the students had a full beard that was well trimmed. It seemed that they were all highly advanced for their age. Especially to be learning about the politics of war.
Virtual culture is a term used in that article. This term appeals to me because it makes it clear that the internet is not real. Something of growing importance as virtual reality begins to take hold in our culture.
Let us all help to create a positive virtual culture free of war. It seems we will not end wars in the near future. World unity is something we can strive for.
It may take another world war is the unfortunate take away for me from learning that there is war netiquette.
