Hampton School's Technology Plan

 

******* Hampton School's Network and Internet Access Policy***** 

Hampton School actively integrates technology into the daily curriculum. Computers are available in each classroom as well as our computer lab. Every classroom contains an interactive whiteboard. All students receive instruction in research skills, keyboarding, Internet searching, and assorted computer applications. Hampton School offers a high speed DSL connection to the Internet that allows students to take advantage of many educational opportunities. Students use Internet-based math and phonics exercises, Spanish and science tutorials, and online “field trips” to historical sites. Students learn to do research relating to their schoolwork. Students use the Hunterdon County Library’s web site to locate online periodical articles about their topics while learning to search an automated library database for print resources. 

 

It is our goal to teach students the safe, ethical, and efficient use of information technology and the Internet. Students are instructed in effective searching strategies while the school's computer network filters web content. Students are allowed to use only the web site assigned by the teacher in charge and search strategies must be pre-approved. Both the computer teacher and the classroom teacher closely monitor students while using the Internet. Students are not allowed to “surf” the Internet, access personal email or online journals, or use instant messenger programs while at Hampton School. 

 

In order to take advantage of the technological opportunities available at Hampton School, all students and their parents must read and sign an "Acceptable Use of and Access to District Computer Networks, Computers, and Resources" contract. Signing this contract indicates that the student and their parents understand and agree to respect the school's network policies. Students will not be permitted to use any computer or technology at Hampton School without this contract on file.
