Recently I have posted a few presentations from my Principal’s Qualfication Program, Part 1 course. This presentation examines the legal ramifications of cyber bullying: student to student, and student to teacher. The safe schools section of the Education Act in Ontario, Canada is the lens through which certain cases are viewed. The seminal case, Killion vs. Franklin Regional School District (2001), is then examined to see the limits of a school’s power.
Recently I created a google survey that asked if educators were allowed to connect personal devices to their district / school networks. Fifty-five educators from around the world, literally, responded. The results were half and half. Thank you to everyone who shared their information.
What are your thoughts? Should personal devices be allowed on school networks?
