Digital Citizenship

Penbrooke Meadows School Digital Citizenship Plan 

Students at Penbrooke Meadows have access to multiple formats of technology including: IPads, Chromebooks and laptops for learning in a digital environment. Students are expected to work on common school-wide goals when using technology within our learning environment. Some of the main competencies we are focusing on this year are; being respectful, communicating effectively and being safe. Our intention is that these lessons learned in school will transfer when students are accessing technology outside the school 

Instructional Goals

Teachers will continue to share and explore effective resources to introduce concepts and examples of digital citizenship. We are consistently learning new ways that technology can assist our students allowing them to demonstrate their understanding in multiple formats. ICT outcomes relating to digital citizenship have been embedded in appropriate curricula. We have invested in various technologies and continue to explore professional development opportunities which will aid us in ensuring that our technologies are functional and that we are competent in the area of embedding the ICT program of studies into other subject areas.  

Student-Owned Devices 

Students are allowed to bring their own mobile devices to use at school. Students and staff are aware of their rights and responsibilities regarding the use of student-owned devices in schools. Students and staff understand how student-owned devices may enhance student learning. Issues relating to student-owned devices have been clearly articulated for students and staff. Penbrooke Meadows does not assume any responsibility for damage or loss to student owned devices. 

Technology misuse

When students misuse technology we follow the AR 1062 outlining positive use as well as our AR  6006 which guides through a process of progressive discipline to work with students who are not following our school digital citizenship responsibilities. Common consequences for misuse could include interrupted access to devices, CBE account, or personal device (may be sent home). In addition, a review of appropriate behaviour and resetting personal citizenship goals would be our focus moving forward. 


Student and Teachers have reviewed the Digital Citizenship Policy outlined on the CBE site. Students and teacher have discussions on a regular basis about online safety. We have shared the digital citizenship plans with our parents at our School Council Meetings.

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.​​​
