2 Objective We are exploring new ways to allow Oak Valley students to use technology in responsible ways. Over the course of this year, we want our students: To know how to use technology responsibly and ethically. To know how to keep personal information confidential. To be sensible about how we present ourselves, our families, and our school. To be intelligent consumers of information.

3 Starter We will look at some common cases where students will need to make responsible choices. Over the course of this year, we will discuss and explore the 3 Ps of Responsible Use (Johnson, 1999): 1. Privacy 2. Property 3. Appropriate Use Today, we are going to focus on the issue of Appropriate Use.

4 What is Appropriate Use of Technology mean? Working in groups of 4, write what your group thinks this idea means: Appropriate Use of Technology. Your definition can only be 8-12 words. You have ten minutes to develop this.

5 3Ps: Appropriate Use Appropriate Use may mean that the use of technology has educational value and it is in keeping with the rules of my family, my community, my school and my government. In what ways is your teams definition the same or different? Which elements are the same and which elements are different? 3 Ps of Responsible Use (Johnson, 1999): Privacy, Property, Appropriate Use

6 Cases for Discussion: Appropriate Use Read quietly, as your teacher reads aloud. Be prepared to share the reasons for your answers, in partners, pairs or in a group. Penelope has found a Web site that has "gross jokes" on it. She prints the pages out and shares them with her friends. Is what Penelope did: a) Right b) Wrong c) Sometimes right and sometimes wrong depending on the situation d) I don't know 3 Ps of Responsible Use (Johnson, 1999): Privacy, Property, Appropriate Use

7 Responsible Use of Technology at Oak Valley Our Common Expectation is: Students may use electronics devices only when directed by a teacher for academic purposes. Students are expected to use the devices responsibly and in a respectful manner.

8 Say Something Activity After reading our Common Expectation, Partner One provides a Say Something in response to the Common Expectation. Partner Two may continue the idea Partner One has initiated or begun. When that topic has closed, Partner Two can provide their Say Something in response to the Common Expectation. Remember to use effective listening and speaking skills during Say Something conversations. You will have minutes.

9 So, how does this relate to us now? We are exploring new ways to allow Oak Valley students to use technology in responsible ways. Over the course of this year, we want our students: To know how to use technology responsibly and ethically. To know how to keep personal information confidential. To be sensible about how we present ourselves, our families, and our school. To be intelligent consumers of information.
