I'm a technology coordinator for an PreK-5th elementary school, and we are looking to write our first AUP that 3rd-5th graders will sign (the littler guys won't sign, but their teachers will review the applicable guidelines with them).
I know I'm lucky to have access to this edtech community and wanted to see if anyone else has gone through a similar planning process and has any wisdom to impart or a sample they could share. We are hoping to frame the AUP as positively as possible (I will keep personal information private. I will use only the program(s)/app(s) the teacher instructs me to use at school. I will carry devices with two hands, etc.) and keep it simple & clear so that younger students can understand it.
In addition, we are planning to do some meetings on digital citizenship with each grade. I have been looking through Common Sense for ideas, but if anyone has other good resources for this type of thing, I would really appreciate it. Video clips or "what if" cases/scenarios (What if someone online asks you what your last name is? What if you see a classmate using a program that he/she isn't supposed to use? etc.) are especially great to help illustrate the guidelines to younger students.
Any insight and guidance you can offer is much appreciated! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org also if that's an easier way to communicate. Thank you so much for your time!
Our district is in the 5th year of 1:1 implementation. Here is a link to all of the resources we used and put together during this process. If you click on the procedures link, you will see the RUP we have created. 1TWO1 Planning and Implementation
As far as digital literacy and such, we use iSAFE for the student curriculum. Each grade level has 4 specific training modules that are taught in the computer lab or with the teacher. This is a required unit of study for all students and the lessons are the same, so the content is uniform throughout the district.
We also use the iLEARN for our teachers. It is a 6 hour course they are required to take for re-certification.
Feel free to use whatever you need. Let me know if you have any questions on the content or if I can help in any way,
