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 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?
