ISTE 2010 – Backchannel code of conduct

Scott Mcleod, ISTE 2010 – Backchannel code of conduct, Jun 24, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Everybody loves codes of conduct - but really, if you have to tell people "be nice" you have deeper problems than you may imagine. The 'additional details' are as bad as one might expect. "No bad words. Do not talk down to anyone. Cyberbullying is never acceptable." What, really? This sort of code is necessary? For professionals? Scott McLeod asks, "What do you think? Is there anything that you'd add to the list? Is it a good idea for ISTE to have a code of conduct for the backchannel?" What I want to know is what problem they were addressing, and why they think that something like a 'code of conduct' would ever be a solution?
