It is the mission of the CBE to help students become safe, savvy, and responsible digital citizens from Kindergarten - grade 12 and into adulthood. We aim to help our students communicate, function, and create change on local, national, and global levels, in ways that are responsible and respectful of others. The use of digital devices throughout the learning process, with teacher support and careful supervision, provides opportunities for students to practice digital citizenship in contexts that mirror real life.

A wireless student network for internet access using student owned personal electronic devices is available at Cranston School, through the CBE’s Learner Accessible Wireless Network (LAWN). Students at Cranston School already use a variety of personal digital devices as part of their learning experience, including iPod touches, iPad, Nanos and laptops.

The use of personal devices by students, with the guidance of parents and teachers, will assist in addressing individual student preferences and needs for learning. Technology infusion into multiple curricular areas stimulates student interest in learning and provides easier access to gathering and organizing information, synthesis, comparison and analysis of information and provides multiple forms of representation for sharing of knowledge with audiences.

In order for students to be able to bring personal devices to school to support their own learning, families must read and sign the “Cranston Family School Contract for Digital Citizenship’ and return it to the school. While students will be supported in their use of personal devices in school as a learning tool, CBE does not provide technical support for any personal technological devices and families must assume 100% responsibility for lost or stolen items. 

As per CBE policy, we ask that any photos and videos taken of students (other than your own child) on field trips or within the school (ie: assemblies) are only taken on CBE owned devices. Photos/videos are never to be posted on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.).

Web Awareness

In accordance with CBE regulations and expectations, Cranston School implements the following procedures to ensure all students are fully trained and aware of the need for web safety when using the internet:

  • All students participate in the Privacy Playground, government-developed website game.
  • At the beginning of each school year, teachers review carefully with students the school policy on using technology:
    • Computers are fully equipped with protected passwords and every computer onsite requires a valid password in order to access the computer, internet and email.
    • Access to computers is controlled to times when supervisors are present and aware of student use of internet.

​Digital Citizenship at the CBE

Digital citizenship is about using technology and participating in digital environments. It is key to helping our students learn to use available technology responsibly in the classroom and beyond. Our school has a Digital Citizenship Plan that is updated annually, addressing how we work to build a community where we live and work together as digital citizens.

Visit the CBE website to learn more on how we support students develop online safety skills and learn to be good digital citizens.​​​
