    Technology initiatives and the impact to policy and procedures


      Has the Acceptable Use Policy been updated in your district based on technology initiatives?  Recently for the K-12 Blueprint Donna Teuber shared Open Access for Personalized Learning and shares the importance of open access and touches on key areas for consideration. 


      All last year my daughter's school piloted allowing students to use their cell phones in school. As the school year came to an end the site based council group reviewed the school's handbook and realized although the school allowed the use of phones - the handbook said they couldn't.  The handbook had to be updated.


      The Policy and Leadership Toolkit has sample Acceptable use policies to see some updated policies that are in practice. What updates has your school or district done to your technology use policies and procedures?  Have they been successful? Have there been any lessons learned?
