What Is An Ict Agreement

By Zach Arnold | December 20, 2020

All schools have ICT agreements that students and parents must sign to use technology in this particular school context. That`s why it`s important for students to know and understand these agreements before using technology. This learning sequence aims to familiarize students not only with the content of the ICT agreement, but also with the reasons for the creation of the agreement. Allowing students to access the “why” behind the agreement helps students internalize the concepts that underlie responsible digital citizenship and ensure that students actually follow the rules and protocols described in it. As a means of interaction and expression: Provide access to a secure collaborative space such as the school`s online sharing platform, Google Docs or collaborate in Microsoft 365. You can download a copy of the agreement online so that students (either in full class or in groups) can edit, comment on and update it. After a few minutes, take advantage of the experience to discuss the need for rules and what happens without them. The idea of responsible use of ICT and responsible engagement in online spaces is an essential concept of digital citizenship. Technology is an integrated part of 21st century life, and it is important that students understand how to engage responsibly in online spaces.

This means understanding what to do if they accidentally come up with a website that doesn`t suit them and how, in an online environment, they can add up with their colleagues in an acceptable way. Discuss the concept of rules and safety why they are needed, and how the rules help us work within the limits of what is acceptable and safe. How do students know what to do when crossing the street? When should they go to bed and why? What other rules can they imagine and why does it exist? Once the rules put in place by the students have been shared and verified, compare them to the school`s ICT agreement, which will contain a number of rules and behaviours that students would follow. As a means of interaction, you can replicate or replace the above activity with a deck of cards and two players. Choose a familiar game like “Go-Fish.” Enter the goal of the game and try to play without rules (some students may agree on rules on how they work). Stop the activity after a few minutes and discuss the need for rules. The Department`s ICT resource use policy (here is this directive) applies to all users of the Department`s ICT resources. If students are committed to behaving responsibly when using ICT, you can also opt for the version produced by the students. Cybersecurity (identity exchange, etc.), moral harassment, device maintenance, proper use of devices, appropriate online behaviour (search for acceptable material), digital fingerprint (reputation) and verification of information (information verification) are under consideration. Groups of forms based on the use of “tech” in order to achieve dispersion in each group. One way to do this is to align with a continuum from limited use of technology to significant deployment.

Once the line is formed, number 1-5. Each of the five groups will then have students with a series of online and technology experiences.
