Setting The Rules

Page history last edited by John Pearce 14 years, 6 months ago

Once the students had begun posting it was time to talk about rules and being a good online citizen.  The following set of rules were developed from other web based sources plus a few inclusions of our own and included in each student's blog as a separate page. There was also considerable discussion in class and other parent permission documents and a forum meeting was organised.


In working with this blog and each of our other webspaces all BPS students need to ensure that they follow these important guidelines. They are designed to make sure that you enjoy these spaces.

  • Only ever use your first name or a nickname when you are writing on this or other blogs or wikis
  • Never use any other student’s last name
  • Never post any personal information–such as your home phone number or home address on this or any other blog or wiki
  • Never share any of you usernames or passwords with anyone and never log in as another student
  • Always tell your parents or teacher right away if you come across anything that makes you feel uncomfortable
  • Remember the “grandma rule” that anything you put on the internet could be read by your grandmother so only write things you could say to the nicest of grannies
  • Be a good online citizen and never write or post anything that could hurt anyone else
  • Always check with an adult if someone asks for your phone number or to meet you
  • Never make arrangements to meet anyone over the internet without telling your parents
  • Make sure you publish only your own work. Don’t under any circumstances use other people’s work and call it your own
  • Make sure that you read over your writing before you post it to check the spelling and that it reads okay

To get some more advice have a look in at Cyberquoll a great fun site just for kids like you.
