Transcript of The safe, responsible and ethical use of ICT

ICT in the classroom
Children are exposed to media from a very young age, they can practically operate an iPad before they can hold a conversation. Children can find information on anything at anytime, anywhere; therefore it is important that children are taught how to correctly and safely navigate online.

With various schools implementing a technology device (Laptop, iPad etc) for each student, there is more need than ever for us as teachers to educate students on the protocols and practices of being safe, responsible and ethical.

To achieve the outcome of safe, responsible and ethical use of ICT by students, teachers themselves need to model an online profile that depicts a positive digital footprint to students. Teachers also need to consider the character they are portraying to staff and parents digitally.

The video below describes the importance to learn to think carefully before posting and sharing in the digital world, and that every time we are online we leave a digital footprint.
Your 'Digital Footprint'
Australian Professional Standards For Teachers
Information and communication technology (ICT) plays an essential role in today’s society, and is rapidly changing and expanding in every field imaginable.

The video below describes how ICT has impacted and changed the world, and highlights the importance of ICT in learning for students and teachers.
How does this apply to us as teachers?
4.5 Use ICT safely, responsibly and ethically
Demonstrate an understanding of the relevant issues and the strategies available to support the safe, responsible and ethical use of ICT in learning and teaching(AITSL, 2014).
How does this connect with the Australian Curriculum?
How do we apply this?
A guide for teachers to applying social and ethical protocols and practices when using ICT for learning and teaching
Recognise intellectual property
Apply digital information security practices
By the end of year six students should have equipped the knowledge to
Identify the legal obligations regarding the ownership and use of digital products and apply some referencing conventions (ACARA, 2014).

An example of a student putting this into practice in any curriculum area is where there task is to collect images off the internet. Students recognise intellectual property if they have the understanding that taking a person’s copyrighted (acceptable if shows a creative commons license) information without asking for their permission is plagiarising and must be referenced.
Apply personal security protocols
Identify the impacts of ICT in society
Independently apply strategies for determining and protecting the security of digital information and assess the risks associated with online environments (ACARA, 2014).

An example of a student putting this into practice in any curriculum area is when creating an online blog. Students apply digital information security practices when they understand to keep their personal information and online profile private, and protecting what they post by using non-predictable passwords.
Identify the risks to identity, privacy and emotional safety for themselves when using ICT and apply generally accepted social protocols when sharing information in online environments, taking into account different social and cultural contexts (ACARA, 2014).

An example of a student putting this into practice in any curriculum area is when researching and browsing the internet. Students are applying personal security if they understand not to open unknown links/websites and to always be considering their own digital footprint when posting online.
Explain the main uses of ICT at school, home and in the local community, and recognise its potential positive and negative impacts on their lives (ACARA, 2014).

An example of a student putting this into practice in the school environment in a positive way is by being aware of the impact of cyber bullying and choosing not to participate in this behaviour and reporting any cyber bullying that they are aware of.
(Go to the ACARA website for other year level requirements)
A informative and interactive website for students to learn how to become a positive digital citizen and provides teacher support to implement this program.
An interactive website that allows students to build a 'bud:ee' to reinforce positive cyber security practice.

An exceptional website with advice and various useful resources (lesson plans, educational activities etc) to help students, teacher and parents understand cyber safety.
Create a class blog!
Design a classroom blog for students to share and explore with each other. By creating a blog you can monitor their digital footprint and make sure they are applying social and ethical protocols and practices when using ICT. If you as the teacher involve yourself in the blog, you can model to students a positive digital footprint, and allowing access to parents is an innovative way for students to show what they are learning in school.
We as teachers can integrate the ICT capability across all curriculum areas. To your left is an example lesson plan of how you can incorporate safe, responsible and ethical protocols and practices into a science lesson.
