What is this all about? What is the purpose of this pilot? To better understand how 1:1 digital devices can be used in a productive, purposeful learning environment. We plan to educate the entire community about how powerful technology can be in the classroom for learning. We will help students become responsible digital citizens.
What is good digital citizenship? Today's kids need new skills to behave safely and responsibly online. Good digital citizenship follows the same basic rules as good citizenship in the offline world. Filters only prevent some kinds of unsuitable material being accessed via your computer; teachers and parents still need to be vigilant. It's important for teachers and parents to model good online behaviour – such as courtesy, obeying the law (not downloading something illegally) and protecting yourself. http://www.schoolatoz.nsw.edu.au/technology/usi ng-technology/raising-good-digital-citizens
