Digital Citizenship

Balmoral students have access to a wireless student network for internet from student owned personal electronic devices. This wireless network can only be used when guided to do so by a teacher or during non-class times of the day. Students are responsible for appropriate use and behavior of all electronic devices. Parents/guardians are encouraged to discuss the learning opportunities and the risks with their son or daughter.

Students must use their device appropriately and comply with Administrative Regulation 1062 – Responsible use of Electronic Information. Ultimately, the teacher is the manager of the learning environment and will decide whether the device is being used appropriately.

The use of any electronic devices, including personal phones, with or without the use of social media to verbally assault, ridicule, threaten, harass, bully, start rumors or gossip about another person could lead to suspension. Parents are asked to regularly monitor their child’s electronic device usage. Digital Citizenship (DC) is having the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to demonstrate responsible and respectful behavior when using technology or participating in digital environments. Digital citizenship goes beyond email etiquette and avoiding plagiarism to encompass all elements of digital engagement, in particular, protecting private information, staying safe online, and knowing how to deal with bullying in the digital world, whether you're a target or a bystander.

As with any personal belongings brought to school, we cannot be responsible for electronic devices that are lost, stolen or damaged.

​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.​​​
