What's A Policy?
Getting Started
  • A policy is a written document that tells us how we are expected to act in different situations.
  • Schools use policies in order to help keep us learning, safe, happy and healthy.
  • Governments, companies and other organisations use policies for many of the same reasons.

Our IT Policy
ICHK Secondary
  • In 2019 ICHK Secondary introduced a new IT policy to help us all use computers and the Internet more sensibly and safely.
  • You will probably already have signed our IT Acceptable Use Policy Agreement, and so should be familiar with the policy.
  • However, it is always worth reviewing the policy, which you should now do using the graphic below (its far more fun than reading the full text of the policy):
    • Click on the image below to load a larger version, with easier-to-read text.

  • Make sure you have spent some time reading and thinking about the text.

Your Thoughts
  • In order to show what you have learned here you will produce a 2-minute video monologue, in which you will record yourself speaking to the camera on your computer.
  • The aim is not to produce a perfect, scripted video, but to just talk as if you were chatting with your teacher.
  • You may want to talk about some of the following:
    • What is a policy?
    • Why does ICHK Secondary have an IT policy?
    • What are some important rules and guidelines in the policy?
    • Tell a story about a time you broke the policy, and what went wrong for you.
  • Try to record your video in a single take: don't worry if you make a mistake, just keep talking.
