What ABOUT SAFETY?
At My Education Room we take safety very seriously.
Only certified teachers are permitted to teach on the site as they are trained to teach children with various learning styles and abilities. They are also (by law) required to have an up-to-date criminal record check as a condition of their licence.
For the safety of the children we have disabled the webcam feature in our web conference platform so your child is not distracted by the appearance of the teacher or that of other children. We want your child focused on the concepts being taught in the lesson.
All lessons are recorded so we can check if any of our policies and procedures have been violated or review the lesson if there is a dispute.
We have disabled the private chat functionality so only public chat within a session is active. This makes all chatting transparent to the teacher and any students enrolled in the lesson.
Safety does not stop there however!
My Education Room wants parents to be involved in their child's education.
FOR CANADIAN AND INTERNATIONAL USERS OF MY EDUCATION ROOM PLEASE REVIEW THE CANADA SAFETY COUNCIL'S ONLINE SAFETY RULES FOR KIDS WITH EACH CHILD (UNDER THE AGE OF MAJORITY) YOU REGISTER TO USE THE SITE
|CONTINUALLY MONITORING YOUR CHILD’S ONLINE ACTIVITY WHEN YOUR CHILD IS ON THE SITE|
Your efforts to instill responsible information practices will help steer your children to age-appropriate websites and will go a long way toward ensuring that your children have enriching experiences online.
We encourage you to spend time online with your children and to become familiar with the types of content available through the Internet in general. We encourage you to oversee the kids’ use of e-mail and other online communication and transactional features.
