Rules for Web 2.0 Applications

  • No student may change or delete the work of another student without permission from both that student and the teacher.
  • The teacher will make every reasonable effort to monitor conduct using this tool during school time in order to maintain a positive learning community. All students and guests will respect each others’ work.
  • Use of copyrighted material (such as pictures you find on the web) must be done with proper credit. Check with your ICT teacher to be sure you know how to do this correctly.

 

Rules for E-mail:

  • The email address is to be used for educational purposes that are related to the students’ learning in class.
  • The email will not be used by parents to communicate with teachers or anyone else. At Kilberry Valley Primary School we believe that it is best to communicate in person or via telephone to get our messages across clearly.
  • All use of these tools (including e-mail and Web 2.0 tools) must be used in accordance with the school’s ICT Policy, even if you do the work from devices outside of school.

E-mail and Web 2.0 Permission Form

 

 

Dear Parents and Guardians,

 

E-mail: Kilberry Valley Primary School recognises that e-mail is a useful communication tool that is used in everyday life. Students need to learn the skills involved in using this important tool. Using an e-mail address also allows for students to register with great web 2.0 tools (dynamic user generated content websites).

 

Our students from grade 3 to grade 6 will be receiving Kilberry Valley Primary School email addresses once this permission form has been handed in.

 

Web 2.0: In the last few years, the internet has grown in the availability of Web 2.0 applications (dynamic user generated content websites). These are a resource to enhance our curriculum. Although these applications are widely used by the education community, in many cases, their Terms of Service require explicit parental permission for students under the age of 13 to use a particular site.  As these sites are instrumental in the development of our curriculum, we are asking that you and your child read this document sign the permission slip and return the notice to the school.

 

ONLY SIGN THE PERMISSION FORM BELOW AFTER YOU HAVE FINISHED READING THE RULES OF USE ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THIS PAGE.
