Laptop Rules

Thanks to Aaron Tyo-Dickerson, Middle School IT teacher at the American School of The Hague in the Netherlands, for sharing this slide show on the ECIS Moodle. He writes that these rules are based on Isaac Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics. His Three Rules "are small but highly elastic and are meant to cover computer usage both at school and at home."
"We had some entertaining, devil's advocate discussions and found that it was really easy to lose track of all of the things-to-be-avoided and the various rationales that might be required. We agreed instead that it was important for the rules to be broad and that they require interpretation from the students and teachers rather than relying on an easily subverted list of DOs and DON'Ts."
