Digital Learning & Responsibility...for Students and Parents


What does it mean to be a responsible digital citizen? 
How do we address that here in 4th grade?

Now is a good time to remind students about the Acceptable Use Policy for technology use in CISD.  Here are a few highlights to address with students:

·         Tampering with any CISD-owned technology (computers, laptops, netbooks,  iDevices, etc.) is considered vandalism and is subject to disciplinary action.  This may include:


o   Changing the screen saver

o  
Changing the background images

o  
Changing the settings on a screen (like flipping the screen upside down)

o  
Using a magnetic device on the monitor ---this causes PERMANENT damage to the monitor

o  
Popping keys off of keyboards and/or switching keys on the keyboard

·         Sharing your password with anyone is not allowed. 

o   If you feel someone (aside from a teacher or parent) has learned your password, you need to alert your teacher immediately.

·         Logging on as another teacher or student onto the computer or into Google is not allowed.

·         Student use of email or other web 2.0 sites are for school use only.  Here are some examples of questions to ask yourself:

o   Is it about a project?

o  
Is it about an assignment?

o  
Am I sharing educational knowledge?

o  
Is it a question about something we learned about?

o  
Is it about a field trip?

o  
Is it about a Spirit Assembly/play/presentation?

o  
Is it positive?

o  
Would I care if my teacher/parent/grandmother/principal saw this?
