BYOD, Cybersafety & Citizenship in Digital Environments
Does my child have to have a device in 2023?
The majority of students have their own device, which has benefits to students’ engagement and learning.
What is the school providing for those students who don’t have their own device?
What is the school doing to ensure my child is safe while using their own device?
- We use a firewall device that allows us to track where each and every user has been on the internet. It also provides filtering via linewise.*
- We can also block specific elements on websites while allowing access to other beneficial elements.*
- All students work through a “Digital Citizenship” programme early in Term 1. A key part of this programme includes the students working through the details of the “Student Responsible Use Agreement” before signing it.
John Parsons is a highly respected and sought after Internet Safety and Risk Assessment Consultant, providing specialist advice and direction on the safe use of Digital Communication Technology. We were very pleased to be able to host John at our school and have him work with the students, staff, Board of Trustees and parents.
