Internet Safety Guidelines in Schools

Internet Safety Guidelines in Schools (TCDSB AUP)
This winter, I am taking an online additional qualification course on Integration of Information and Computer Technology in the Classroom. I am really enjoying it thus far and find it much more practical that the FSL Specialist course that I decided to postpone. One of the tasks we have been asked to complete is to create a list of guidelines for internet safety for classroom use. I really like the TCDSB Acceptable Use Policy our board currently has in place and so I created a list of guidelines that were adapted from the AUP. In Sylvia Duckworth style, I created the sketchnote above using the Sketches app on my iPad. It was a little more time-consuming that I would have liked but it sure was fun!

    1. It's frightening, even. Hence, the more important it is to teach digital citizenship.

  11. Great guidelines. Things are definitely more scary than when I was in high school. I had male pen pals from all over the world and even met a few of them.

  12. great list of tips! #8 is very important especially in an environment with other people around and forgetting to log off or getting busy doing something else is quite easy to do

  15. In my daughter's class of approx. 30 students (12 years old), 98% of them are already on all social media platforms illegally. A lot of cyber bullying goes on as these kids are not mature enough to respect the guidelines of facebook, etc. They take their daily arguments to fb & post mean things on each other's walls. Online safety guidelines should always be a discussion with your child.

  16. It's such a whole new world for kids that was just did not have to navigate when we were growing up. The internet is a great thing but can also be a scary place.
