Using a Tool

Welcome to the Digital Toolbox for SD57 - Prince George. 

This database contains online apps and service (tools) that can be used in SD57 provided the privacy instructions are followed. 

There are 3 levels of privacy instructions that will be used:

This tool does not need any identifiable student information such as name, email address, etc. If there is optional fields to provide this information they must not be used.
This tool requires student information but you may use a pseudonym system to avoid giving any identifiable student information.
The following cannot be used as a pseudonym:
  • Students' PEN or Pupil #
  • Students' Email address
Examples of pseudonyms include:
  • numbers
  • fictional characters
When accurate student information must be used in account creation parental consent must be acquired. If a tool says this then a completed consent form must be given to the student (if over 13) or parent/guardian (if under 13). An alternative to the tool must be provided for anyone who declines the use of a tool.

Tools will also be labeled with one of 3 payment types:

Free tools do not require any payment to use the basic features.
Examples are:
  • Scratch
There may be additional costs to use premium features however. This will be noted where known.
SD57 has a license for this tool. Contact your teacher-librarian for a list of passwords for use outside SD57 networks. Most District tools will automatically work on SD57 networks
Examples are:
  • World Book Encylopedia
  • Bookflix
Note: Not all licenses allow every school to use. Some licenses are only for elementary or high school. This will be noted where applicable.
It is up to the school to pay for this tool.
Examples are:
  • Reading A-Z
  • IXL

Requesting a new tool 

New apps require a privacy scan if they have not been approved. Teachers who would like to submit a request to have one done, please fill out this form. Tools will be prioritized and assessed as soon as possible for educational benefits and privacy concerns.
