“I've come up with a set of rules that describe our reactions to technologies: 1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works. 2. Anything that's invented between when you’re 15 and 35 is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it. 3. Anything invented after you're 35 is against the natural order of things.” Douglas Adams Author

Twenty years later and all these things fit in your pocket…

Rules and Expectations

• Always use your iPad in ways that are appropriate and respectful to your teacher, your classmates, your parents and yourself • At school, your teachers set the rules on how you use your iPad • At home, your parents set the rules on how you use your iPad. • Charge your iPad at home every night and bring it to school ready to use • Backup your important files regularly (Google Drive, iCloud, iTunes, DropBox, etc) • Look after your iPad!

Suggestions and strategies for home • Come to an agreement with your daughter regarding her technology use • Set limits on what is acceptable - time, place, etc • Only use technology in shared spaces. Going to bed does not require an iPad! • Be actively involved in your daughter’s iPad use. Get her to show you what she can do! • Feel free to look through the iPad. Nothing on your daughter’s iPad should be a secret. • You are the parent. Your say is final.

Is it ok if I… • Put apps on my iPad? • Have music? • Have games? • Use FaceTime? • <insert question here> It’s your iPad.
