The focus for this criterion is the access to the network and how this is controlled and conditioned by an organisational policy, usually this is an Acceptable Use Policy (AUP).
The internet and computer network allows a great deal of communication and access to information. Some system needs to be in place to ensure that it is used properly and for the right reasons.
Students should be allowed to discuss the AUP and why the different rules and regulations are in place and what signing a document to agree to them actually means.
They can discuss with the network team the elements of the school's AUP.
|Key words||AUP, cyberbullying, policy, etiquette,||These words need to be reinforced throughout the series of lessons|
|Assessment||Evidence here will be student's own work, eportfolios and assessor observations|
|Key Questions||Some questions to get learners thinking about the topics||Students will need to look at the parts of the AUP and discuss them in some detail to fully understand them.||What does your AUP say? What does it actually mean? Is it easy to abide by, or are there things you don't agree with? Why?|
Students should show that they understand the principles of the AUP and how to maintain them with their own behaviour. They should also be able to appreciate the benefit by using such a system.
|If you are using the Learning Machine learning system, students can add their comments and material to this site as evidence of their growing understanding. The site, if used consistently, will show progression via charts of activity and outcomes.|
|Teaching and Learning Elements||
Students can be shown and discuss the AUP and even where it may be improved (thanks here to Huish Episcopi school).
Use some of the student's ideas and examples to flesh out a solid understanding before progressing
Question students about how and why they did what they did. Check for understanding.
