MODULE 2: ACCEPTABLE USE
1. Introduction: Acceptable Use Policy
The mobile learning program at La Salle provides tools and resources for a 21st century education, empowering you to maximize your potential in preparation for college and the workplace. Using iPads offers an opportunity for you to enhance your overall learning experience by providing access to learn anytime, anywhere –in or out of the classroom.
This 1:1 personalized learning also promotes responsible use in today’s current technological era. Understanding and following the acceptable use policy ensures that each student gains the full benefits of La Salle’s academic accessibility.
The following modules will cover the basics of La Salle’s Acceptable Use Policy (AUP). Every student will be required to have a copy of AUP loaded on their iPad, accessible through iBooks.
Download the AUP Policy here on your iPad, then use “Open In iBooks” and open the pdf file in iBooks. We will review this document during the On-Campus iPad Bootcamp and during Falcon Formation classes throughout the school year.
Next: Filtered Internet Access
2. Filtered Internet Access
When you bring your iPad to school you will be required to register your device with La Salle’s Mobile Device Management (MDM) program. You will use a dedicated La Salle wireless network just for students. At school, you will go to your wireless settings on your iPad, choose the designated La Salle student Wi-Fi and then sign in with your La Salle username and password in order to access and browse the Internet. This will be covered during the summer On Campus iPad Bootcamp).
By logging into the La Salle wireless network, you are accepting the terms of the Acceptable Use Policy.
Once on the La Salle wireless network, all users will have filtered Internet access (rated PG13). This means that some websites will NOT be available to you when you are on the school’s network. Certain resources (e.g. Schoology, Google Drive, school databases) will have priority over user-selected websites.
If students remove La Salle’s MDM profile from their iPad, they will NOT be able to access the school network. Students need to understand that the MDM program can block certain websites or allow teachers to view website usage through the Teacher View program when they are on the school network. One benefit is that the MDM program can push out apps or eBooks to students through the Self-Service App.
If students have iPads equipped with 3G/4G capabilities, they must have their cellular network capabilities turned off while on the school grounds.
When you return home and access your own personal wireless network you will return to full Internet access.
Students who want Wi-Fi access on their phones or iPods will continue to use the Guest Network.
