The use of web based educational resources has risen steadily over the last decade, and are increasingly being used by teachers across Queensland to improve student learning outcomes. Our school and teachers make decisions about the best technology to meet the needs of our students. As a BYOD school, we aim to provide many opportunities for students to access and learn with their devices for meaningful learning experiences. Various online resources are investigated to determine appropriateness prior to sharing with students. Sometimes it is beneficial for students to utilise services provided by third party web based providers. Kedron State High School wishes to utilise the third party web based service provider/s listed below to aid students learning.
For your student to use the service, the teacher may need to register them as a user. Registering with these providers requires student personal information to be disclosed to the provider of the service. In the case of the services outlined in the Online Services Register (PDF, 57KB) document, they are private companies that are hosted onshore in Australia and outside of Australia. Outside of Australia means that data that is entered to register for these sites will be stored on servers that are not based in Australia, and therefore are not bound by Queensland’s privacy laws.
To the right of this page are links to the third party web based service providers. This list is updated annually.
