Abstract

Although "acceptable use" policy (AUP) constitutes a fairly straightforward perspective in many school districts - students' ethical, legal, and personally responsible educational usage of electronic technologies - there is a more ambiguous area of which administrators need to be aware. For example, what constitutes an AUP and who is responsible for creating them and upholding their guidelines? Other issues that need to be thought about are what makes up "appropriate" (instructionally acceptable) standards of educational quality in terms of the content of web sites?
