Digital citizenship is a term that has recently gained prominence as our schools and classrooms have become increasingly steeped in technology. Simply put, digital citizenship refers to the way we behave online and the social rules and expectations that we apply to those behaviors. The word “citizenship” refers to our contribution to and responsibility toward a community.
Since cellphones have found their way into the back pockets of so many students, teachers have been faced with the dilemma of whether to embrace them or ban them altogether. Some believe that if students have cellphones and they are given educational reasons to use them, then they are less likely to be disruptive or distracting.
An Acceptable Use Policy, or AUP, is a policy used by schools to clearly spell out what is acceptable and what is unacceptable when using a school’s network and the internet. It can also include rules for the care and use of devices in situations where a school provides laptops, tablets, or other internet-ready devices that students take home.
Technology in the classroom is no longer the exception. It’s now the rule. But not all schools can afford to outfit each classroom with the latest devices to enhance learning. One way schools have found to work around a shortage of resources is to allow students to bring their own devices into the classroom. This strategy is commonly called BYOD, or “bring your own device,” and it has been largely successful in getting more tech into schools.
With the explosion of classroom technology, IT directors and technology coaches are working to keep up with bandwidth demand and predict its growth from year to year. While every school is different in the kinds of technology it uses, understanding trends in classroom technology can help make bandwidth predictions more accurate so budgets and planning don’t fall short.
When budget time comes and you’re charged with identifying the tech needs of your faculty and staff, it’s sometimes hard to see down the road far enough to predict long-term needs. This is especially true for IT directors and technology coaches who are constantly trying to navigate changes in hardware, software, and related equipment, as these resources tend to operate on a very short lifecycle.
Technology is continuing to have a dramatic effect on the classroom, not just in terms of the devices that students are using to learn but also in how the classroom is designed and furnished to accommodate device storage and charging. What does it mean for your school and its approach to device management? Here’s a closer look.

While you can find plenty of debate on whether the paperless office is a myth, paper usage in the U.S. reached its peak in 1999, followed by a steady decline of about 1 percent per year. That’s great news for the environment. Yet according to the Clean Air Council, the average American office worker still uses 10,000 sheets of copy paper each year, generating about two pounds of paper per day.
