Our Acceptable Use of Technologies Agreement

Digital Citizenship runs through everything we do. We continuously come back to our Technology Agreement and break down what each part means. Our use of technology principles is to enhance learning, not substitute. It sits inside a whole child, fully balanced curriculum with Positive Education/ Wellbeing at the core.

NetSafe defines a Digital Citizen as someone who:
  • is a confident and capable user of ICT
  • uses technologies to participate in educational, cultural, and economic activities
  • uses and develops critical thinking skills in cyberspace
  • is literate in the language, symbols, and texts of digital technologies
  • is aware of ICT challenges and can manage them effectively
  • uses ICT to relate to others in positive, meaningful ways
  • demonstrates honesty and integrity and ethical behaviour in their use of ICT
  • respects the concepts of privacy and freedom of speech in a digital world
  • contributes and actively promotes the values of digital citizenship.
Positive Health: These students are looking after themselves by looking after their bodies (their backs) while they work together online. We limit the amount of screen time and spend lots of time moving around. 

Positive Relationships: These students are working collaboratively to create. 

Positive Purpose: Our students have been working hard to develop systems to keep the technology safe and charged.
