Becoming a Digital Citizen
Beachlands School believes in a Digital Citizenship model for supporting safe and responsible use of the internet in teaching and learning. An important part of this is that we are able to show others what that responsible use looks like while we are using technology in our learning.
We think a good digital citizen is someone who;
Because we know this is important for us all, we ask everyone, the staff, students and volunteers working at the school to agree to use the internet and other technologies in a safe and responsible way by following the rules laid out in a Digital Citizenship and Responsible Use Agreement.
If someone cannot agree to act responsibly, or the things that they do mean that other people are being harmed, then we might stop them from using the internet or other technology at school.
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
We recognise that the world is changing rapidly and that our students use digital devices such as laptops, desktops and tablets as important tools for their learning and communicating. We want to maximise the learning enabled by these devices and as a result, have an optional 'Bring your own Device’ (BYOD) programme for Years 4‐8 students at Beachlands School.
