Digital Citizenship

Toko School supports a Digital Citizenship model for the promotion of safe and responsible use of technology including the internet, in teaching and learning.  An important part of this is that we are able to show others what that responsible use looks like while we are using technology in our learning.

We think a good digital citizen is someone who;

  • is a confident and capable user of digital technology
  • will use  digital technology for learning as well as other activities
  • will think carefully about whether the information they see online is true
  • will be able to speak the language of digital technologies
  • understands that they may experience problems when using technology but can deal with them
  • will always use  digital technology to communicate with others in positive ways 
  • will be honest and fair in all of their actions using  digital technology 
  • will always respect people’s privacy and freedom of speech online will help others to become a better digital citizen.

Because we know this is important, we ask students to agree to use the internet and other technologies in a safe and responsible way by following the rules laid out in a Responsible Use of ICT Agreement.

If someone cannot agree to act responsibly, or the things that they do mean that other people are being harmed, then we might stop them from using the internet or other technology at school.
