Rationale:Technology can be very helpful for personalized, student-centered learning, such as organization, research, collaboration, D2L/Google access, and creating digital products/portfolios. Together with parents/guardians, our goal is to help students become Digital Citizens who use technology in respectful, responsible and productive ways.

Technology in the Classroom

Clarification of Use:

  • St Basil supplies Chrome Books, Laptops, Computers, and iPads for student use
  • BYOD (Bring Your Own Devices) helps support learning in addition to school based technology (ex. laptops, tablets, smartphones/handhelds/netbooks/e-book readers, mp3 players, etc.)

Responsible Use:

  • Students should not expect that they will be permitted to use their electronic devices every day during every class. It’s at the discretion of the teacher.

Students agree to use personally owned devices at school as follows:

  • School-related learning (i.e. no texting, social media, phone calls)
    • teachers give permission, as discussed in each class
  • Connected to the school Wi-Fi, under POD (Personally Owned Devices)
  • Record/photograph others only for school related purposes (ex. projects, assignments) and have teacher and classmate(s) permission.
  • Recordings/photos must be deleted after classroom projects are finished
    • cannot be posted to YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. or shared with others
  • Devices must be kept on silent (cell phones should not ring or buzz when someone is calling or texting them)

Electronic devices can be used for the following, with permission of individual teachers:

  • listening to music during work or study times
  • use school appropriate Apps (dictionary, calculator, calendar, etc.)
  • entering assignment due dates during class when the teacher has given permission to the students
  • check D2L for marks and course content
  • use Google Drive for assignments
  • use the internet for research purposes

Provincial Mandate:

With the devices provided by St. Basil and students’ devices, combined with the right pedagogy and used responsibly, technologies in learning can serve as:

  • lines of inquiry and interest based on academic subjects and beyond
  • allow for collaboration with teachers and peers to express themselves and their ideas effectively
  • personalize their learning to ensure that they are fully engaged and are successful in attaining the established learning outcomes
  • allow for student choice to explore, research, think, synthesize, analyze, evaluate, communicate and express ideas
  • platform for students' voice
  • access to digital content and digital learning environments that provide multiple pathways to learning
  • connect to local and global learning environments - enables students to connect and purse real-world issues and topics that interest them (individually and collectively)
  • learn and attain standards for digital citizenship
