Digital Toolkit for Parents

During the months of February, March, and April our Sherwood Heights staff shared information with our students on Digital Etiquette, Digital Health and Wellness, and Digital Rights and Responsibilities. We covered these main points with Digital Etiquette:

Basic rules you should follow when using technology

  • Appropriate use: time and place in a classroom
  • Treat others with courtesy and respect online
  • Permission is needed to post pictures and/or video

Social media is not a forum to post

o Relationship issues

o Personal opinions about your job

o Financial information

o Embarrassing photos

o Phone number or address

We encourage you to discuss Digital Etiquette with your student. We have included a video from commonsensemedia.org, the topic is social media musts for teens and can be used as a conversation topic with your student.

https://www.commonsensemedia.org/videos/5-social-media-musts-for-teens

Here are some common themes we hear from the students at school, and are passing along some information to help in your awareness with social media:

  • Students can access their Instagram and snapchat accounts anywhere and at any time, they simply need to login and do not need to have the app on their device.
  • It is beneficial to know your students username and password to their accounts to help monitor their usage.
  • There are apps disguised as a calculator, they act as a vault and storage device. Many of these apps use a passcode that requires a sequence of numbers entered to access the vault. The icon may appear similar to the native app for the device, but can be recognized by searching online. Here is an information article related to calculator apps for parents to help recognize them.
