Vetting Process for Digital Tools

Thoughtful selection of tools to enhance student learning in a digital environment requires evaluation of three primary domains: 1) curriculum, 2) technical, and 3) legal. Digital tools need to be appropriate for the learning goal, be well designed, meet the intended purpose, and be secure and safe.

Curriculum: Educators need to be sure they are providing high quality digital resources for student learning.

Technical: All online tools need to be reviewed relevant to compatibility on our devices and within the network infrastructure.

Legal: Apps, sites, and services must be evaluated on how well they protect student data privacy, respect intellectual property, and adhere to legal data guidelines.

Staff will use the IQ Ticket System to document their review of digital tools before submitting the ticket for review by the Teaching and Learning Department and the IT Department.
