What does AUP stand for? Acceptable Use Policy… Believe it or not, every entity that allows you access to the Internet (that you do and do not pay for), yes…that check box… is part of your AUP – Better known as the small print.
As a digital citizen, you cannot take for granted your rights. Take the time to read what you agree to. It may seem tedious but you need to be aware of the terms you legally are accepting.
As an educator, I must be responsible and model this behavior. If your students don’t know the school’s AUP, make sure you introduce it to them immediately (especially when your school district officially kicks off “BYOD” madness.)
