Digital Learning @ EPS
All students are given a Google account login upon enrolling at Elm Park School and this gives students access to Google Drive, email, blogs and sites.  Unless the school is advised otherwise in writing, all students enrolled at Elm Park School will regularly upload their work to their e-Portfolio blog and other sites that are viewable to the public.  This may also include their first name and image.  This is common practice across many New Zealand schools and aligns with Ministry of Education guidelines.  Our school uses Network for Learning filtering provided by the Ministry of Education and our teachers closely monitor student use of Google accounts with Hapara Teacher Dashboard.  If there are any serious issues with student use of their Google account or a device we will inform parents immediately.
