Class (Community) Guidelines

‘If you were in charge of writing YouTube’s Community Guidelines, what would you include?’



Setting the Context:

YouTube’s Community Guidelines are the ‘rules of the road’ for our users when posting content and engaging on the platform. They outline the level of responsibility, which is expected of all users. The Community Guidelines are linked to from the bottom of every YouTube page under ‘Terms’ and are written in clear, easy to understand, jargon-free language so that all users can be clear on what the YouTube rules are.


Students break into groups of 4-5 and each group should post their Class (Community) Guidelines in order of importance on the Class Blog. Post as Comments.

From this list, as a class, craft a Class Pledge on Social Media Guidelines and post it as a new entry in Class Blog.
