In these classes, students have the opportunity to use a cis.dk domain account, specifically to be used as a tool in the classroom, in connection with their school work. Most students already have at least one e-mail address, so the cis.dk account is only for school purposes (i.e. not forwarding jokes or signing up for various game websites, etc.)
Besides using email for "traditional" email purposes (sending messages), the students use the digital toolbox which Google Apps provides. The students will learn how to use e-mail, Google Drive (Docs, Forms, Sheets and Slides) Google Sites and Google Calendar. They will also learn about "good practice" in internet use - personal safety, netiquette, and digital citizenship. The accounts are to be treated as virtual classroom spaces – classroom rules apply also when using these tools (including the language the students use.) All of the students agreed to the school's Appropriate Use Agreement before opening their accounts.
