Students are encouraged to use to technology to:

  • Seek alternative viewpoints

When I use digital technologies and the internet I will:

  • Help to stop cyber-bullying. I will inform a trusted adult if I read/see something that is upsetting, inappropriate or hurtful either to myself or others
  • Create and present my own work and if I copy something from the internet, I will let others know the link to acknowledge the creator.
  • Protect my personal information, as well as the personal information of others (birthdate, phone number address, photo etc.) by not sharing it online.
  • Not share my password, nor log in as someone else.
  • Only join spaces (or websites) that are safe and appropriate for my age and only with my parents’ or teachers’ permission
  • Use technology appropriately at school and at home
  • Handle school equipment carefully
  • Have adult approval when printing documents for learning and be mindful not to waste paper
  • I will be responsible for any electronic device that I bring from home with my parent(s) and teacher’s permission, and understand that there is a risk of it being damaged or stolen. I will abide by the rules listed above when I use it at school. If I do not use it appropriately, my device will be kept by my teacher or in the office during the school day.
