Digital Citizenship

A wireless network for internet access using student owned personal electronic devices is provided at Colonel Irvine School. At our school, we have CBE owned devices (laptops, desktops, etc.) that access our CBE network (both fixed and Wi-Fi).

Students have access to a variety of media and technology tools throughout their classrooms in the school. It is expected that all students adhere to expectations for responsible and ethical use of technology and the Internet while in our school. Misuse of digital tools, including computers, the network, digital cameras and cell phones, will result in loss of privileges for a period of time.

Students also have the opportunity to access a student wireless network (wifi) using their own digital devices in the school. Students are required to read the Network User Agreement before accessing this service in the school. Students may use their own devices at their teacher’s discretion to personalize their learning in the classroom. Privileges to use cell phones and other digital devices during the health and lunch hour are also at the discretion of school staff.

Students are reminded that they are responsible for the safety and security of any digital device they bring to school. All students are expected to follow school and classroom guidelines for acceptable use. The school does not assume responsibility for any devices brought to school by students.

Students are also reminded that all digital recordings, audio or visual, may not be shared or distributed via the Internet or through social networking sites, without the written permission of those people recorded. These restrictions are in place for all students, staff and visitors to the school.

​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.​​​
