Technology 101: What You Should and Shouldn’t BeDoing in the Computer Lab

By Brittney Burchiel (Boyer)

Handling the technology
Handling the Technology

  • Technology includes: Computers, laptops, tablets, SMART Board, and even YOUR cell phone.

  • Technology should be handled carefully! We are using expensive items that would be hard to replace.

  • If you break our classroom or lab technology, you may even have to pay for it!

  • Always use two hands when lifting a laptop and when at a PC, keep both feet on the floor.

Internet safety
Internet Safety

  • Only visit websites on our Safe list for the day

  • No Facebook…or Twitter…or Instagram. Period.

  • Have the teacher check before you send any e-mails.

  • Rule #1-Never, ever, ever give out private information about yourself. Keep it simple, First name and age.

    For example: Brittney, 26

Don t believe everything you see or read
Don’t Believe Everything You See or Read

  • Not everything on the internet is true. In fact, people can make websites saying whatever they want.

  • Use Safe sites your teacher suggests that have accurate (true) information.

  • Even my favorite, Wikipedia, can be wrong.


  • The internet is just like real life, if you would not say something to someone in person, don’t say it online! (Shea, 1994)

  • Use proper grammar and spelling, even if you are online. Nobody wants to read a comment or an e-mail written in “text speak.”

  • The worst use of the internet is Cyberbullying.

  • According to Wikipedia (Wiki), Cyberbullying is: “the use of Information Technology to harm or harass other people in a deliberate, repeated, and hostile manner.”

  • This means, using the internet to hurt someone very badly emotionally. This could be saying hurtful things, posting mean pictures or comments, spreading rumors online, or sending cruel e-mails.


  • Cyberbullying is ILLEGAL!

  • People who have been found cyberbullying will be charged with a crime.

  • If you feel you have been cyberbullied, tell an adult immediately.

    (Virginia Department of Education)


  • Please do not download anything.

  • Anything you need is already loaded on our devices.

  • Downloading is a way that viruses can get into our computers, phones, tablets, etc. and destroy them.

  • If you see this page, you

    are at a page you are not allowed to visit, at least at school.

  • Press Go Back, and try a different website.

Most importantly
Most Importantly

  • Never tell anyone where they could find you or meet you.

  • Just like the real world, the online world has scary strangers. Some of them might try to hurt you, if they can.
