Web 2.0 Information
Throughout the school year students are introduced to online programs in which a student account is required in order to store classroom work. These online programs, called Web 2.0 Resources, are usually free or inexpensive and are a way digital information is created, shared, stored, distributed, and managed.
Typically, these tools require personal student information (such as their name), in order to set up an account.
Here in D303, we take the issue of student privacy seriously and take steps to ensure students are safe online. Here are the responsibilities of staff and students when using Web 2.0 resources along with suggestions for the community.
D303 Staff members:
- A request to use a Web 2.0 resource must be submitted to the Department of Learning & Teaching. Please see the staff Web 2.0 site for the form to complete.
- The request must explain how Web 2.0 resource will support instructional outcomes in the classroom.
- Once a Web 2.0 resource has been approved for classroom use, an email needs to be sent to parents informing them that the tool may be used in the classroom.
- Creation of student accounts for a Web 2.0 resource must be overseen by the classroom teacher.
- The classroom teacher must model, demonstrate, and monitor student use of the resource during school hours.
- Will create Web 2.0 resource accounts using their district credentials (ID number and password or district Google account).
- Will follow established classroom and school expectations for acceptable use and behavior.
- Will keep personal information private whenever possible.
- Will use all tools in a positive and enriching manner.
- Stay involved - know the sites your students are visiting online and ask about the projects they are creating.
- Understand that teachers won't be able to monitor students when they're working at home.
- Expect that teachers are modeling positive online use behaviors.
