Social Networking Web Sites: Teaching Appropriate Social Competence to Students with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders
Morgan, Joseph J.
Intervention in School and Clinic, v45 n3 p147-157 2010
The Internet has opened a variety of different avenues for people to interact with each other. As new digital environments are developed, new sets of social skills are needed to appropriately interact. Students with emotional and behavioral disorders often have deficits in social competence and require specialized training in specific social skills to appropriately participate in specific situations. For students with emotional and behavioral disorders to access the academic and social benefits of social networking Web sites, it is important that the skills for these new environments be taught to them. This article covers ways that classroom teachers can address this need. (Contains 7 tables.)
