Digital Citizenship

Acceptable Use Policy – Technology & Digital Citizenship

Access

The use of technology is an integral part of learning at all CBE schools, as required by the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Program of Studies. The privilege to use devices and networks is dependent on the level of responsibility and digital citizenship shown by individual students. It is our intent that all students have access these tools for learning on an ongoing basis, under the direct supervision and subject to the discretion of our teachers.

Guidelines for Use

Students are encouraged to use technology to:

  • Access, critically assess, and communicate information and understanding;
  • Seek alternative viewpoints;
  • Collaborate during inquiry;
  • Construct personal knowledge and meaning;
  • Demonstrate understanding;
  • Organize and manipulate data; and
  • Interact with others.

Students are expected to: 

  • Demonstrate respect for themselves, others, and our school while using our network.
  • Protect their health and wellness, and also their privacy, safety, and freedom on our network.
  • Access our network appropriately, and are prohibited from accessing sites that constitute inappropriate use or may endanger students, and/or damage the network, hardware, or software.
  • Respect intellectual property, and to be familiar with and to adhere to the copyright, software piracy, and fair dealing laws associated with learning technologies.

Students are at all times responsible for the security and maintenance of their mobile devices. Our school is not  accountable for any damaged, lost, or stolen mobile devices. Further, students will not have access to any technical support at our school for their personal mobile devices.

Violation of Acceptable Use Policy

Each situation will be dealt with on an individual basis, pursuant to CBE regulations. Breach of CBE policy may result in the restriction or loss of computer or network privileges, school-based disciplinary consequences, costs for damage/replacement and/or police intervention and/or legal action.

​​​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.​​​
