Til að tryggja öryggi barna og unglinga þarf að vanda val á stafrænni tækni sem nýta á í skólastarfi.
Reykjavíkurborg hefur sett sér persónuverndarstefnu byggða á persónuverndarlögum. Skólastjóri ber ábyrgð á notkun stafrænnar tækni í skólastarfi ásamt því að sinna upplýsingaskyldu gagnvart foreldrum.
Góð stafræn borgaravitund felst meðal annars í því að koma vel fram hvert við annað í netheimum sem og í raunheimum.
