Enjoying my annual opportunity to hum, “Who’s down with RUP (yeah you know me)?”

At the beginning of every school year, I review the Responsible Use Policy with each middle schooler. It’s an annual opportunity to remind them to use our available technology academically, respectfully, and responsibly and to make wise choices as everything they do online is public, permanent, and traceable. The students need to get the formed signed by a grownup at home (who hopefully reads it over with them), and return it to me before they can access their school-issued MacBook Air for the year.

This year’s RUP is mostly the same. The big change is that in the Internet section, I took out the line about not using the school laptop for online purchases. I replaced it with my favorite refrain: I will make wise choices, because everything I do online is public, permanent, and traceable.
