Digital Citizenship

A wireless student network for Internet access using student owned personal electronic devices is being provided at Nose Creek School. The use of personal devices by students with the guidance of parents and teachers will assist in addressing individual student preferences and needs for learning. Below are key points that students and parents need to familiarize themselves with.

Students and staff are bound by CBE regulations at all times and in all spaces associated with the school.

  • The use of digital devices is allowed only with the specific permission of the school principal and teachers.
  • The use of digital devices is a privilege and not a right.
  • The use of digital devices is intended for educational purposes, not communication or recreation

We expect students to T.H.I.N.K. before you use digital/social media to connect with others: Is it Truthful, Helpful, Inspiring, Necessary, Kind.

Cameras, including all cell phone cameras, must not be used anywhere on campus without direct teacher permission. They must only be used for educational purposes. Any photos of people taken on school property or during school activities are not allowed to be uploaded to the Internet unless permission is obtained from the teacher.

Student Owned Devices

As with any personal belonging that a student brings to school, the school cannot be responsible for electronic devices that are lost, stolen or damaged. The individual student lockers are a secure place for students to leave their device when not in use. 

Students will not have access to school servers or printers through their personal devices. As such they will need to utilize their CBE email or Google Drive accounts or purchase and use a USB device to transfer files to the school network.

Digital work submitted by students must be in a format that can be opened and utilized by school staff. It is the responsibility of the student to reformat and resubmit work if it is does not meet the schools digital requirements.

No software will be provided to students for student owed devices. School classes may utilize software applications that the student does not have on their device. Furthermore the school is not able to provide technical support for student owned devices.

Cell Phones / Digital Cameras / Digital Recorders

Mobile phones may be used before school, at lunch and after school for calling or texting, at no time during instructional time should students be using their phones for these activities. Remember that all use must be appropriate. 

Should parents/guardians need to contact students during instructional time they may call the office to pass on a message. If students need to contact parents / guardians during this time they should ask their teacher to come to the office and use the main phone. Parents / guardians are asked to refrain from calling or texting their child during instructional time.

Due to FOIP and privacy concerns, unless given explicit permission from a staff member, students are not permitted to take photographs or digital recordings of staff or students at school or on the bus. Should students be found to be using cell phones for calling or texting during class time they will be asked to lock their device in their locker. Should this occur repeatedly, parents / guardians will be contacted and the device will be returned through parents / guardians.

​​​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.​​​

Today, our 6s explored YouthLink Calgary Police Interpretive Centre! They solved a crime & learned all about forensic science techniques, gangs, digital citizenship & healthy relationships… even spent some time locked up! It was an awesome day! Thanks, @YouthLinkYYC! 🕵️‍♂️🔎

Today, our staff spent time together exploring the benefits of outdoor learning and making meaningful connections with the land. We absolutely loved our time out at the Yamnuska bluffs! ☀️🌳⛰️
