INTERNET USE AGREEMENT
Student Name: ______________________Date: _________
I have read the Internet Use Agreement found on this site. I understand that this access is designed for educational purposes. I recognize it is impossible for the school to restrict access to all controversial materials, and I will not hold the school district responsible for materials acquired on the Internet. I am responsible for the equipment that I use in the classroom and I will only use the equipment assigned to me when I am allowed to use it. I have asked my teacher about any questions I had, and am fully aware of what is expected. Failure to follows these rules will result in a double elevated OBC for violation of technology as well as a zero for every day I cannot use this technology to complete my project. I will follow these rules to be a good digital citizen.

When they completed their research for written information and had typed the bulk of their paper, they began seeking images of what the research was about. This was used in the group project and all cited works were listed on their "Works Cited" page of their paper.
As they receive their laptops, I placed a "sticky note" with their initials on it so that I would know exactly who had used that particular device I had to check and clear their history nightly.
A few changes I would make: When the "Our classroom website" site was created, my partner was working with younger elementary students, and the videos target that population more. I would like to go back in and "grow up" some of the videos a bit to better fit my middle school population. Also, assuming I am the only one still using this site, I would like to change the wording of the Internet Use Agreement to what I have above for consistency with my students. I would also change the "computer sign-up" page as this is not something my students will be doing.
