Digital Citizenship

At Terry Fox School, we believe that technology can be a powerful tool to enhance and support the learning of each student. It allows them to access, work with, communicate understanding of, and display their learning in unique and important ways. Students have the right to access and use technology to support their learning, and are also responsible to use technology in appropriate and ethical ways. To support this work, we believe that all students, staff and parents must commit to and follow established standards of appropriate and ethical use while using technology or accessing the Internet.

Phone, Ipod and other technology

We believe that students benefit from using technology to support learning, and that learning how to use technology appropriately is part of what school should teach.

Students may use their own personal devices for academic purposes, during instructional time, at the discretion of the teacher, and provided that the student is following expectations of the Digital Citizenship model. Students must put personal devices away when asked to by a teacher.

Digital Citizenship is an approach to using technology appropriately. This approach is taught in classrooms, modelled by teachers, and expected of all students. Students using personal devices at lunch, or before/after school, are still bound by the expectations of Digital Citizenship, and the Student Code of Conduct. Students may be asked to limit technology use for safety reasons, or to minimize disruption of the school environment.

The school will not be responsible for lost or stolen electronic items; such items are brought to school at the students’ own risk.

​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 on how we support students develop online safety skills and learn to be good digital citizens.​​​
