Cramlington Learning Village Presentation from #frog12
Managing Acceptable Use Graham Quince VLE Coordinator, CLV
Background• CLV: 2,200+ students, 120 teachers• Approx 1500 PCs on site• 300 mobile tablets in Year 7 (expected to double in September)• 3 Web Designers• CLV has been a Frog School since September 2008
Story• Social Networking was a big buy-in for us• Benefits of SN: – Communication, both non-directed and directed – Student Voice – Responsibility
With great power comes great responsibilityWith every PowerPoint comes an obvious pop-culture reference
Trust• We wanted to encourage responsibility, not limit student access.• Social Networking exists in the ‘real world’, we should help our students learn how to use it• Of course, there’s always some who will turn to the dark side…
Acceptable Use Policy• All students when first starting at CLV are introduced to the computers and our AUP• The AUP is a contract with the students explaining: – how they should use the school’s computers – what is acceptable on the internet – when they can play games, etc…
Acceptable Use Policy• There are consequences for breaking the AUP just as there are for any inappropriate behaviour in school.
The Banned List• Manual Frog Group: The Banned List
The Banned List• Students who break the AUP are added to the group• A Frog IF Brick surrounding each fun section on the VLE prevents those students accessing that resource.
