Digital Citizenship

In order to be St. Michael’s digital citizens, students must know how to use technology appropriately. Digital literacy, or the ability to understand and fully participate in the digital world, is fundamental to digital citizenship. It is the combination of technical and social skills that enable a person to be productive, successful and safe in the information age. Like literacy and numeracy initiatives which provide people with the skills to participate in the workforce, digital literacy has become an essential skill to be a confident, connected and actively involved lifelong learner. 

Students demonstrate ethical and responsible use of technology by: 

  • keeping their District login and passwords confidential 
  • protecting their own personal devices with passwords 
  • ensuring the security and safety of their own electronic devices 
  • ensuring the security and safety of school - owned electronic device 
  • using & managing devices in a lawful manner 
  • managing the content contained on their own personal electronic devices 
  • ensuring that they access acceptable materials for educational purposes 
  • respecting and abiding copyright laws (text, photos, music, video, etc.)
  • ensuring that their personal device does not disrupt the learning of others 
  • using and engaging in social media with respect for others both in content, posts, likes and what is being shared.
  • The privacy and dignity of self and others needs to be protected and respected.
