In today’s digital age, technology is actively used in classrooms to engage, enhance and support learning. From computers to mobile devices, tablets to interactive video games we are working to engage students with technology.
The TDSB’s Online Code of Conduct applies to all uses of technology, including social media. In it, you can learn more about:
- Personal Safety Rules
- Unacceptable Sites and Materials
- Use Guidelines
- Prohibited Uses and Activities
- Consequences of Inappropriate Use
Social media can enhance learning and networking, when used in a positive way. Online behaviour matters. The Student Code of Conduct and School Codes of Conduct apply to social media. Always think before posting online. The digital footprint you leave behind can stay on the Internet forever. To learn more, visit your school office or speak to your Principal.
As a TDSB student, you can use Google's G Suite for Education. Your Google Drive gives you unlimited storage for an online digital portfolio of your work and are you are able to share documents and collaborate with classmates and teachers. You can access this through AW using your TDSB login ID and password. If you do not already have this information, you can get it from your teacher.
Another component of your digital portfolio is your Home Drive (H:\). This storage space is limited to 2GB and you should take some time to clean up this storage location so that you do not reach your quota limit. Look for larger and older files when cleaning up – check out the instructions for how to perform these searches. Remember that your digital portfolio is your responsibility to maintain and keep if you are graduating or leaving the TDSB.
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
Students may choose to bring their own devices to school (such as smartphones and laptops). It is important to make sure that devices are used responsibly, do not interfere with learning and respect the rights of others at all times.
With your personal device, you can log in to the TDSB wifi using these instructions.
