Site Purpose
This site has been designed as a resource for Rocky View Schools staff and students.  The information provided is intended to guide and support teachers when making decisions around appropriate use of technology.  Rocky View staff are encouraged to review the tools listed on this site but must ensure they follow the steps listed in the Non-Supported Technology procedure.

 

Please note that this site only contains reviews on tools that require a “transfer of personal information”.  Many tools and ios apps store information locally on the device and therefore will not be found on this site.

Steps to Follow

By following these steps when vetting a web-based technology in Rocky View Schools, you are helping create and maintain safe/secure learning environments for all RVS students.

 

Accepted Technologies

Accepted Technologies

Tools hosted outside the RVS infrastructure and have been flagged as “accepted” on this website, are only “accepted” when all listed conditions are met. (Notes at the end of each post)  This is only one part of the approval process and teachers/administrators must complete all process steps and compile to the guidelines listed in the Non-Supported Technology procedure.

This site can be used by schools to:

1: search for tools that have been vetted and either “accepted” or “not accepted”
2: put forward a request to review a specific tool or service
3: to learn more about how tools are being used in Rocky View

This site can not be used to:

1: bypass the Non-Supported Technology Procedure
