Technology Usage in the Learning Environment
Bring Your Own Laptop (BYOL)
Students in grades 6-12 use a laptop device of their choosing throughout the school day.
ASB’s wireless campus supports the fully integrated use of technology, access to resources
and ability to communicate. Students, teachers and parents all reap the benefits of ASB’s long-standing commitment to utilizing technology in innovative, value-adding and practical ways.
At ASB, we use technology to enhance teaching and learning, and ensure that all our students
are comfortable and exceptionally skilled with essential and rapidly evolving tools. Technology
at ASB is both common-place and cutting edge – we use it every day, and we learn to use it
more efficiently and effectively.
Backing up Digital Data
Students are expected to back up all school-related data to a network or external drive at least
once a week. Long-term projects should be backed up more regularly.
ASB’s Responsible Use Policy
The guidelines below apply to any and all digital devices students may be using in school,
including smartphones, Mp3 players, slates, tablet PCs, laptops, etc.
Technology Use Guidelines
The American School of Bombay uses Information Technology as one way of enhancing
its mission to teach the skills, knowledge, and behavior students will need as responsible
citizens in a global community. The school’s technology infrastructure and network provide
extraordinary opportunities to enhance student learning with a variety of technology
tools and services. To ensure these resources are always available, it is imperative that
all members of the learning community use technology in a manner consistent with our
educational mission. Access to the school network and the Internet is a privilege that is tied
to responsibilities. The following guidelines are intended to help individual technology users
understand responsible use. The school may restrict, suspend, or terminate any user’s access
to the school’s technology systems and network for not respecting these guidelines.
I. Technology Maintenance
Each user is responsible for his/her own use and should treat and use technology
responsibly and appropriately. Computers and computer accessories are sophisticated
devices that require care and gentle treatment to function properly; if you mistreat your
device it will likely run poorly or malfunction.
