Digital citizenship is a comprehensive approach to the use of digital technologies that spans student education from K-12 and into adulthood. Digital citizenship should be practiced in every course, throughout the school and at home. Digital citizenship is an ongoing partnership between teachers, students and parents. Just as teachers build an awareness of the importance of digital citizenship at school, parents build and reinforce these concepts with their children at home.

Digital citizenship isn't just about recognizing and dealing with online hazards. It's about building safe spaces and communities, [having students] understand how to manage personal information, and about being Internet savvy -- using your online presence to grow and shape your world in a safe, creative way, and inspiring others to do the same.

Hillhurst School recognizes that our students and their families use digital technologies at home, at work, and for social purposes. Digital technologies have also become an integral part of our school program - for research, for communication, and for production of print, online, and multimedia demonstrations of learning. At school we model and teach safe, ethical, appropriate and responsible online behaviour and monitor student use of digital resources.

In some circumstances, parents will be consulted regarding students bringing their own digital devices to school for connection to our wireless network. This will only be done for specific educational purposes, and will be subject to the same digital citizenship expectations as for CBE equipment.

​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.
