Cybersafety

Cybersafety and Computer Usage

The College computer network, Internet access facilities, computers and other ICT equipment/devices bring great benefits to the teaching and learning programs of the school and to its effective operation.  The Internet is an excellent resource for research and communication; however there is material on the Internet that is objectionable and inappropriate for research or general use.  ICT equipment and devices can also be used in a manner that is detrimental to the individuals and the community. For these reasons there need to be measures put in place to guide the use of the Internet and ICT equipment at Geelong Baptist College.

The College aim in this matter is to create and maintain a culture of Cybersafety.  This culture of Cybersafety must be in keeping with the College values as well as legislative guidelines and professional obligations.  The College ICT is for educational purposes; teaching and learning activities appropriate to the school environment.  This applies whether the ICT equipment is owned or leased either partially or fully by the College, and used on or off the College site.

Once this agreement is signed and recorded at the College, students will be able to use the College ICT equipment and devices.
