District Approved Web 2.0 ApplicationsOur district uses many valuable online tools to further our curricular goals. To use some of these online tools, student accounts must be created. Because some students are under 13, it is necessary that we obtain parental permission so that students can use these accounts. Below is a list of online resources that will be used in our district which require student account creation. The URL for both the website and its Terms of Service can be found with the name of the tool. If the field has "NO*", the online tool may not be used with the student until parent permission is received.
In order to use an approved Web 2.0 tool, staff members must agree to comply with all of the following requirements:
• The Web 2.0 tool must be used to support instructional outcomes.
• For Web 2.0 tools requiring staff members to create accounts:
o Staff must use their district email account when email information is required.
o Staff members will create a login identity and password that is not used for personal accounts.
o For auditing purposes required by the Web 2.0 Administrative Procedure, staff members must give login and password information to building principal or designee.
• For Web 2.0 tools requiring students to create accounts:
o Parental approval is needed if the field below has NO* (see Annual Web 2.0 Applications Consent).
o Students will register using a personal email account if email information is required.
o It is recommended that privacy settings are as strict as possible unless the educational purpose determines less restriction is necessary.
• Staff members must monitor use of a Web 2.0 tool to ensure appropriate use by students.
Each Web 2.0 tool is approved/not approved by level: elementary, middle school, and high school. It is the staff member’s responsibility to check for changes/updates to this list prior to implementing a Web 2.0 tool in the classroom as privacy policies and services are subject to change.
