Digital technology affords new ways of learning, and in turn, new challenges are emerging and evolving for tamariki. Teaching children to be digital citizens is more important than ever.
We teach the knowledge, skills and actions required to grow digital citizens.
Skills and strategies needed to access technology and use it to communicate, connect, collaborate and create.
Attitudes, underpinned by our school values which support personal integrity and positive connection with others.
Knowledge of the digital environments and contexts in which they are working, and how the online world and offline world integrate and affect each other.
The ability to draw on these three points above, to participate in life-enhancing opportunities and achieve their goals in ways that make an important difference.
At Kaurilands each of our classes co-create their own digital citizenship agreement at the beginning of the school year. Student representatives for each year level meet to share classroom discussion points and agreement suggestions and take additions or alteration back to their classes for further discussion (in year 1 and 2 this discussion is completed by teachers). Consequences are also decided on by classroom reps, who share back with the classes to make sure they agree.
The agreements are structured across all year levels according to these three strands.
Each of the akonga signs the class copy of the agreement, which is then sent home for whānau to view.
Here are links to each of the agreements for 2017:
