Are you ready to rethink your acceptable use policies?

Yes buttonAre you ready to rethink your acceptable use policies (AUPs)? If so, here are some resources for you:

Let me know what you think (and what you might add to the resource lists). I’m always on the search for student and/or employee AUPs that focus more on empowered use rather than hammering on safety/security concerns. We need more AUPs that emphasize YES! instead of NO!

  1. Hi Scott –

    You may want to take a look at this CoSN resource on creating Responsible Use Policies:

  2. Our school uses no filters. That’s our YES. Our core requirement though is that there must be an adult in the room with you, who can see the screen. That’s our NO.

  3. I agree with you Scott that students are more creative, more engaged and more dedicated to learning if they can access the full array of information available to them. But I think they are also right on their part of not allowing cell phones in school or even access to internet because of the various security reasons and discipline. Thanks for an informative piece of article.
