Digital Citizenship

In keeping with the CBE’s commitment to helping students thrive in the 21st Century, the CBE Get Connected Network will allow students to use their personal devices to connect to the Internet at school. To support this, the CBE and Haysboro School are promoting digital citizenship to create a safe and secure environment where students use digital technologies as part of their learning including IRIS their personal learning plan tool.

We have an Admirable Use Policy, which defines the parameters around the use of student owned devices. Principal and teachers have absolute discretion over the use of these devices as it pertains to the specific learning activities in each classroom.

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.​​​
