The Safe and Sound Protocol provides a framework for the safe use of technology in schools. The Library of Congress developed safe and Sound with input from teachers, parents, children, librarians, and others.
What is this protocol?
It is a set of guidelines for safe technology use in schools.
What does it means? Safe means that people will not be harmed or put at risk when using digital media. This includes school staff, students, and other people. Safe also means that the technology will not break or impact equipment in a way that could cause problems for others. Safe is about following guidelines so everyone can be safe from injury or damage.
Sound is defined as working well with no issues or errors when used correctly.
It is not just about preventing cyberbullying; it also offers strategies to help students develop digital literacy skills that will prepare them for success in college or career.
Safe and Sound Protocol is about respecting the rules of technology to ensure that we are all “Safe and sound.”
