Digital Citizenship Philosophy

To support the creation of an inclusive learning community here at NIS, we promote a thoughtful and balanced approach to the use of digital technology. Our philosophy includes three main approaches: Respect, Protect, and Connect. It is important that you understand the philosophy and help us support your children in learning how to use technology in meaningful and safe ways.

As parents, we need to take an active role in our children's technology use. We can do this by talking to our children about their use of technology. NIS’s Technology Philosophy can be used to assist you in speaking to your children about their use of technology.  To begin the conversation consider the following questions?

Respect

Be Kind. Ask:

  • Have I thought about how my actions will affect others?
  • Am I using digital technology in a responsible and ethical manner?

Protect

Be Safe. Ask:

  • Am I making appropriate choices with the information that I am sharing and consuming?
  • Am I keeping myself and others safe?

Connect

Be Helpful. Ask:

  • Am I using digital technology in a way that promotes positive, inclusive attitudes?
  • Am I using digital technology to enhance my learning?

More information can be found on our website.

If you have any questions about our philosophy or would like to talk about parenting in the digital age please reach out to us.

Thank you,

The NIS IT Support Team
