Digital Learning Responsible Use Communication
All learners in Boroughmuir High School have access to, and make use of, digital technologies to support their learning both in school and at home. There are two guides attached:
- Digital Learning – Responsible Use Protocol
- Digital Learning – Quick Start Guide
All pupils and parents/carers should read the Digital Learning Responsible Use Protocol. The Quick Start Guide is a one page summary of the Protocol. The purpose of this protocol is to highlight steps to stay safe when using digital technology. We are enabling the video feature in Microsoft Teams to allow live two-way video lessons during times when blended learning may be necessary.
In sharing this protocol we will assume permission to use the video function, and adherence to responsible use is accepted. If you do not want to child to take part in live video lessons if deemed appropriate by the class teacher then please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
