The Department has developed two support resources for Global 2 users: a Global2 User Guide for Schools and Teachers and a Global2 Information for Parents booklet. These support resources are critical to ensure student information is kept private.
The Guide provides schools and teachers with guidance on best-practice use of the software with regard to privacy. It is essential that both new and existing users of Global2 read, understand and action the nine recommendations and one requirement contained in the User Guide. The Information for Parents booklet provides information about Global2 and alerts parents/carers that they can opt out of use.
A series of technical changes to Global2 will be completed by the end of the Term 1, 2020 school holidays to support the recommendations in the Guide. A summary of these changes and why they are important have been provided for school’s information.
