Understanding the Policies that Affect Digital Citizenship at Your Schol

Student 2.0 - Appropriate use of Technology and Social Networking Policies

Task: Investigate the appropriate use of technology or social networking policies that apply in your situation as a student or teacher. As a teacher, you want to be sure that you know and understand them before asking your students to engage in certain online activities.

Share your thoughts (a few ideas listed below)
  • Please identify your perspective (student, teacher, administrator, parent, etc.)
  • How do you feel about the policies in place?
  • What limitations do they place on you (or your students)?
  • What would need to change in order to help you feel that you were providing or experiencing a more authentic learning opportunity?
  • Are there policies in place that actually promote social networking or the integration of technology into your classroom that would be worth sharing?
  • How do the policies impact authentic teaching and learning about your digital footprint?
