Web 2.0 Tools
At the Peel District School Board, we believe that using Web 2.0 tools is an essential component of teaching and learning in today’s world. Web 2.0 tools can include Internet sites where users interact and collaborate in online environments, websites where users log in, and/or applications for tablets. We provide below a list of commonly used Web 2.0 tools, and information regarding each tool and the location in which information posted through these services may be stored.
Please refer directly to the resource’s website for further information. Information submitted to the site is stored on a server in the location identified and users are subject to the laws of that jurisdiction. Please be aware of the requirement of the User Agreement for each site, which will be followed in the school by all users.
Please also note that these services are beyond the care and control of the Board and that the Board cannot be held responsible for any consequences and/or misuse of any information posted through these services. No confidential or personal information should be posted with these services as any such information may be disseminated.
All users are required to abide by the Board and school’s Code of Conduct and the Board’s Digital Citizenship policy when using any of these services (as well as any applicable User Agreement). If a user engages in any inappropriate or illegal activity while using these services, the user risks discipline and/or having the use of these services suspended or removed.
A user should not expect privacy when utilizing Board technology. All Board resources and data stored on Board technology are Board property and may be accessed by the Board (i.e. it may be reviewed, monitored and accessed by authorized individuals, as needed). Data is also subject to relevant legislation and may be accessed through Freedom of Information requests.
Please refer to the Notification letter, Code of Conduct (posted on your school’s website), and Board Digital Citizenship policy for the detailed requirements and implications regarding use of Board technology services.
