Global2 is open to Victorian Government and Catholic sector schools and is specifically provided for students to learn about blogging and web publishing.
The Department developed two support resources for Global 2 users: a Global2 User Guide for Schools and Teachers (User Guide) and a Global2 Information for Parents booklet (Information for Parents). These support resources are critical to ensure student information is kept private.
The User 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. It is essential the parents/carers are fully informed of their child’s use of Global2.
A series of technical changes to Global2 will occur over the Term 1, 2020 school holidays to support the recommendations contained in the User Guide. A summary of these changes and why they are important have been provided for school’s information.
