Digital Citizenship Plan and Computer Refresh Cycle

Originally posted September 22, 2014.

The computer desktop refresh cycle for schools replaces computers in labs as well as classroom teacher stations. This four year cycle has been in place since the 2010-2011 school year.

A requirement for schools to continue receiving these computer refreshes is that Digital Citizenship and Safety needs to be planned for and included in their school in any of the following ways:

  • Inclusion in school PBIS strategies
  • Direct instruction by administrators/teachers to all classes or the school via assembly
  • Presentations written and performed by older students with younger students
  • Speakers / Presentations (RCMP for example)
  • Other strategies that provide digital citizenship/safety lessons to all students (please discuss with Principal of Technology)

The strategies must be publically documented on the school’s website in one or more fashion

  • In the yearly SIP that is published on the website
  • A blog post that is prominently linked in a menu or otherwise (can include a PBIS post)
  • A page that is prominently linked in a menu or otherwise (can include a PBIS page)
