Everyone has their favorite websites they love to use with their students. There are so many options available out on the Internet these days, and new educational websites are being developed all the time. However, as educators in the world of instant access, we have to be mindful of what and how student information is being used on these websites. As a result, Great Falls Public Schools has developed the guidelines described below for using only District-reviewed and approved websites with students to ensure that we are complying with federal laws such as FERPA, CIPA, and COPPA.
To get to these two resources for approved website use, begin at the District’s website, select Staff and then Technology Resources. Click the tab called Web 2.0 Tools, and with a click, you have access to these resources. Bookmarking the Approved List could also be beneficial for a quick reference when considering a new resource. Your instructional and technology coaches are always available to support your lesson planning with these approved tools to promote a successful experience with technology in the classroom
