Grade 3 Student Online Safety

The grade 3-5 students have been busy signing in to their new Gmail accounts. 

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.

We watched some of the following videos and had discusssions about what it means to be 'safe' online.

Welcome to ICT!

I would like to welcome you to the 2015-2016 school year here at Copenhagen International School. We have planned some exciting activities in ICT for all of the grade levels. The students will be issued their own personal usernames and passwords for the school's student computer network. These usernames and passwords will then be used to establish Gmail accounts for grades 3 - 5. I will be giving more information about those accounts at a later date. All students will be asked to sign the school's Appropriate Use Agreement.  The AUA asks students to behave responsibly while using the school hardware, network and e-mail.
