2015-2016 Gr 4 Digital Citizenship and Safety Presentations Report

Laurie Petrucci from Technology Services spent time this last year presenting to Grade 4 classes regarding Digital Citizenship and Safety. Her pre and post survey results are available in the linked PDF below.

A key take away was before the session that half of our grade 4 students did not know that what they post online could be permanent.

The post survey showed that 91% of responding students believed that their online posts were permanent.

Purchasing of Devices and Digital Citizenship and Safety Planning Requirement

For purchases of devices that students will be using there must be a plan in place for explicit teaching of Digital Citizenship and Safety before deployment of the devices. (iPads/Chromebooks/etc)

The Technology Administrator will discuss with the site Administrator prior to purchasing to verify that a plan is in place or will be in place prior to deployment.
