Digital Citizenship

Acceptable Use of Electronic Resources

Students may bring their own personal devices to school for use OUTSIDE of instructional time (before school, at lunch and after school). Personal devices will not be permitted during instructional time.  If a student needs to use a personal device for a project/assignment, it will be at the discretion of the teacher.  At all times students must follow and understand our commitment to the acceptable use of electronic resources. Personal Devices may include; but are not limited to Smartphones, Tablets, iPods and Laptops. The school takes NO RESPONSIBILITY for lost, stolen, misplaced or misused personal devices.  Students are encouraged to leave their devices at home.

Personal devices may be used as a Personal Learning Tool (at the discretion of the teacher) to:

  • Promote digital citizenship, mobile learning, and etiquette
  • Access, critically assess, and communicate information and understanding
  • Seek alternative viewpoints
  • Collaborate during inquiry
  • Construct personal knowledge and meaning
  • Organize and manipulate data
  • Make cross-curricular connections

When in use, personal Devices Should:

  • Be logged into the CBE My Devices 2019-20 Wireless Network to access the Internet
  • Be in plain sight of the teacher (Students must be mindful and responsible for their devices at all times as the school is not responsible for stolen or damaged property.)

Personal Devices Should Not:

  • Be used to take pictures or video of any kind (Please note:  For school directed projects students may use CBE owned devices for capturing images and video.)
  • Be used for social networking
  • Be used to bully, intimidate or threaten 
  • Be used to text, email or personal message about non-school related topics
  • Be used to access inappropriate websites such as: pornographic, lewd, vulgar, encourage gambling, discuss the illicit use of drugs or alcohol, promote violence, or are adult only 
  • Be used as a game platform to distract the student from their work
  • Be used to plagiarize or reproduce online content
  • Be used to cheat during tests or exams
  • Involve sharing accounts or passwords with any other students

Consequences for Inappropriate Use of Personal Devices:

  • School-based disciplinary consequences that relate (RE: cheating, bullying, harassment)
  • Losing the privilege of having a personal device at school
  • Restriction or loss of other technology access to the school network
  • Confiscation of the student’s personal device until a parent/guardian is able to meet and retrieve the device from the teacher/administrators
  • Police intervention

Digital Citizenship is a shared responsibility between students, parents and 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 about how we support students to develop online safety skills and be good digital citizens.​​​
