Core ICT Values

 

ICTAUP (information and communication technology, acceptable use policy)

 

WE RESPECT EACH OTHER

We must be considerate of other people when using all electronic media.

For example, we must not post images of other people on social media sites or any website without their permission to do so.

 

WE TREAT ALL PEOPLE FAIRLY

We all represent the school while on the network and internet just as we do when wearing our uniform on the street.

For example, we always acknowledge references of material in our assignment work.

 

WE ARE HONEST

We must use our computers with integrity.

For example,   1.We must not try to be someone else on the network.

2. We must keep our passwords secure.

 

WE WORK HARD

Computers are a special resource and are to be used for school work only.

For example, downloading unnecessary video slows down internet access for others. We will not attempt to access social media sites.

 

WE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL WE DO

We must take responsibility for what we access and we may be held accountable for any aspect of our use.

For example, we will not download any objectionable material.

 

WE TAKE CARE OF OUR ENVIRONMENT

We must endeavor not to cause any damage to the network through our actions.

For example, we must not create any security risks by trying to upload programmes or scripts to the school network.

 

 

These are guidelines and examples only. Network access is a privilege and it may be revoked where the spirit of these guidelines is not adhered to.
