Title: Acceptable Use

In this activity, the students will review the school technology/acceptable use policy.  The students will research items to include in these types of policies, including legal protections such as CIPA, COPPA, FERPA, ADA Compliance, etc. Finally, the students will collaboratively draft their own policy and share with their classmates, school, and/or board of education. 

This activity was created as a result of the DLCS COS Resource Development Summit.
