Heather Student Technology
Welcome students and family to Heather Elementary technology site! We will be using exciting technology tools throughout the school year. Technology will be used to streamline learning, to encourage collaboration, and to problem solve in a 21st century classroom. In the beginning of the year, families signed Technology Usage release forms including 1) Student Acceptable Use of Technology Agreement for the San Carlos School District (SCSD) and 2) Digital Citizenship Agreement. With permission and signed consent, our district created google accounts for students. This account will be used solely for school projects and assignment from Kindergarten to 8th grade while attending schools in SCSD.
Digital Citizenship Contract for K-2
Digital Citizenship Contract for 2-3
Digital Citizenship lessons from "Common Sense Media" will be incorporated throughout the year to teach students to be safe, responsible and respectful. This site provides helpful information and fun activities for students.
One Stop Site for Apps/Sites Used
Heather students will be using the clever site as a portal for apps used in the classroom. School google accounts are used to login to clever. This site will help the district, school and teachers to monitor student usage, progress, and privacy.
Once signed on, students can click on any education app from school and home to practice math, typing, reading, coding, etc. Please note that not apps are being used by every classroom, since it may not be grade level content (i.e. Typing Club may not be applicable for Kindergartners). Please ask the teacher for apps used in the classroom.
The district is diligently working on adding more apps to Clever, including "Reflex math," "Raz-kids," and "Freckle."
Student google accounts are used only for sites that are certified to keep student information safe. iKeepSafe and external agreements have been established with sites where student google accounts are used.**
**There are great sites that may not yet be certified. For these sites, teachers create accounts using imaginary names to protect student information. Please use google accounts for apps specified to do so.

Not all teachers use every app/sites listed below. Some apps are found in Clever, where students may login using their google accounts. Other apps require teacher created accounts to login.
