Are you being a safe and successful digital citizen? Do you know the rules of the game?
A digital citizen is someone who is able to understand and fully participate in the digital world characterised by technical and social skills that enable a person to be successful and safe anywhere in a digital world.
A School Digital Citizenship contract is a policy designed to ensure safe and successful use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) at all times. This is a policy that encourages students to be safe and successful digital citizens. It is more than just a code of conduct, it is a way of life for everyone, students, teachers, parents and carers.
that all on-line activities are monitored and logged. that some sites are automatically blocked because they are considered inappropriate. that nothing in school is private. that inappropriate on-line behaviour may result in sanctions which may inconvenience you and your studies.
be a safe user whenever and wherever I am; be responsible when I use technology and support others by being respectful in how I talk to and work with them; never write or participate in online bullying. This includes forwarding messages and supporting others in harmful, inappropriate or hurtful online behaviour; report to an adult if I feel unsafe or uncomfortable online or see a friend being unsafe or being made to feel uncomfortable by others.
follow the Schools Digital Citizenship Contract whenever I use ICT; keep myself and my friends safe by not giving out personal details including full names, telephone numbers, addresses and images and by protecting my password; use the technology at school for learning, use the equipment properly and not interfere with the work or data of another student; not bring or download unauthorised programs or files; not go looking for rude or offensive sites; use an online name and avatar when sharing my work online; remember that the content on the web is someones property and ask my teacher or a parent/carer to help me get permission if I want to use information or pictures; think carefully about what I read on the internet, question if it is from a reliable source and use the information to help me answer any questions (I should not just copy and paste information as my answer).
I need help online; I am not sure what I should be doing on the internet; I come across sites that are not suitable; someone writes something I dont like, or makes me and my friends feel uncomfortable or asks me to provide information that I know is private; I feel that the welfare of other students at the school is being threatened.
use it as requested for learning purposes as directed by my teacher; be responsible in my use and not use the device to find, create or send information that might be harmful, inappropriate or hurtful to me or anyone else; be entirely responsible for the security of the device at all times.
keep my phone on silent during class times and only make or answer calls and messages outside of lesson times – except for specified learning purposes; protect the privacy of others and never post private information about another person using SMS messages.
only take photos and record sound or video when it is part of a directed class activity or lesson; seek permission from individuals involved PRIOR to taking photos, recording sound or videoing them (including teachers); seek written permission from individuals involved PRIOR to publishing or sending photos, recorded sound or video to anyone else or to any online space; be respectful in how I talk to and work with others online and never write or participate in online bullying; seek teacher permission before uploading any content to public websites.
