SNP student communications
There are two channels through which staff and students may communicate with each other:
Staff and students should not know each others' personal details and should not be communicating with each other via their own email accounts or via Skype or other tools (other than the schome community website).
Staff and students must adhere to the Acceptable Use Policy whenever doing anything related to the project.

Our communication with them should reflect this. We are there to serve their needs - within reason!
Staff should always keep a record of any communication that they have with a student within the project. This might be done automatically as part of the communication process (eg edits on the wiki and posts in the forum have the contributor's details stored automatically). The list below gives some guidance about recording communications in other circumstances:
Students should support each other and project staff as much as possible. They have a responsibility for helping to ensure that everyone on Schome Park and within the wider schome community website feels safe and is valued.
Students should be aware that one of the aims of the schome-NAGTY Teen Second Life Pilot is to explore the educational potential and pitfalls of Teen Second Life. This means that staff on the project will be collecting data about what happens within the project.
If students feel unhappy with any aspect of this they should raise their concerns with a member of the project team (and with their parents or someone in their school) - students have the right to withdraw from the project at any point and to ask that their data is not used - and do not have to give any justification or explanation for their decision.
