This is something that really resonated with me at EduTech this year. Keynote by Richard Culatta on focusing on the do’s not the don’ts for Digital Citizenship. I think there is a lot of power in avoiding the word don’t.
I love the simplicity of the language in the iPad License books by Te Akua ki Papamoa School.
I am at the point of the year here in Australia where I a reviewing our iPad Rules in preparation for the start of the 2023 school year and I am curious for some feedback and to see if anyone is willing to share their school iPad Rules? When I search online I am finding a lot of “don’t” type rules.
Our Primary Campus is divided into Junior Primary and Senior Primary and so we also have two sets of iPad rules which aim to be a little more age specific and develop in complexity. These rules more or less are a representation of our Acceptable Usage Policy on the ground…where we are just really trying to avoid the worst that can happen…
I am finding the Senior rules to be “a lot” - but are still not coving all the issues that have arisen this year. In contrast the Junior Rules probably are not enough but I cannot think what’s missing.
Ideas and examples are appreciated!
