Digital Citizenship at Saddle Ridge School
Students at Saddle Ridge have access to a variety of technology. Every classroom has a Smartboard, which allows teachers and students to engage in learning together.
We also have various technology around the school including two carts filled with Macbooks, laptops, two carts filled with Google Chromebooks and three iPad carts. Students at Saddle Ridge school are given numerous opportunities to engage and use each of these technology tools to help enhance their learning.
Digital Citizenship (DC) in our schools is about having the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to demonstrate responsible and respectful behaviour when using technology or participating in digital environments.
We are committed to preparing our students to thrive in the 21st century. Digital citizenship is key to helping CBE students learn to use available technology responsibly to enable them to reach their full potential as learners. We are committed to supporting and engaging our parents around digital citizenship.
We review our Digital Citizenship plan with staff by November 30 and with students by January 31 each year. We measure the outcomes of our Digital Citizenship plans through the number of incidents we have with students each year, which has been 0% over the last 12 years.
Each CBE school is required to have a Digital Citizenship plan that is updated annually. The plans address how a school will work to build a community where we live and work together as digital citizens.
