Digital Citizenship

Rosedale Acceptable Use of Technology Policy

Technology at school plays an important role in teaching and learning. Rosedale school provides students with opportunities to use technology to support and enhance their learning. There are computers in all classrooms and in the library, as well as wireless laptops, iPod, IPad, a class set of alpha smart keyboards, smart boards, and projectors for presentations.

We also have digital cameras that can be accessed by students. Our school network of computers is ever increasing and represents a substantial financial investment. It is essential that students using computers and other digital tools do so in a respectful and responsible fashion at all times. Please refer to the Calgary Board of Education website (www.cbe.ab.ca) for acceptable use policy.

Rosedale School is a ‘Cell Phone Free” school. Cell phones are to be kept in students’ lockers unless given specific permission by teachers that the device may be used in class. Cell phones may be used before and after school outside of the building.

Any video/media capture, photos or sound recording are not permitted except where express permission has been granted by teachers and persons specific to the event. School devices will be assigned for school tasks.

Rosedale School retains ownership of all media with the exception of recording of public events. Relatives and guests are permitted to take pictures or record events unless otherwise stated.

​​​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.​​​

What’s the best way to know how something works? … take it apart and look inside. Our 8s had the chance to dissect sheep and horse eyes to see how each part work together. #yycbe #wearecbe #edchat #sciencechat https://t.co/2tvI7TChoZ

Today our 9s explored indigenous ways of knowing in geometry. We used Math in a Cultural Context to learn how we can make circles using only our knuckle and a pair of scissors. #yycbe #wearecbe #mathchat #edchat @UsihChristopher RT #IndigenousPeoplesDay https://t.co/19sTyB6Zun https://t.co/ptbcqNNJXI

Rosedale Middle School Students in grades 6-9 are powering through their last full week of the 2021-22 year by showing School Spirit! We'll be kicking off the week by dressing like our favourite character from a show, book, history, band, or so much more on Monday! https://t.co/obI185VaSH

Our 8s were diving into the science and social issues of filtering unsanitary water. Clean and safe drinking water is something we take for granted but for almost 1 billion people around the world this isn’t the case. #yycbe #wearecbe #edchat https://t.co/lgDCakPpnf

Strong mental math skills start and end with the use games and manipulatives. Games like totality build resilience to create stronger understanding of number sense. #yyccbe #wearecbe #math #maths #edchat #mathchat https://t.co/4U6dyxUQyU
