Dealing with Inappropriate Content on KQED Learn
Student work and voice are the heart of KQED Learn.
- Students can revise, edit or delete their own work at any time.
- Teachers are able to delete a student resource, comment or Make & Share.
Occasionally it may be necessary to address student work that violates the KQED Learn Code of Conduct. KQED Learn represents an extension of your classroom, and you should take action regarding student comments, resources or Make & Shares that violate the Code of Conduct.
Use these guidelines when making the decision to remove student work:
- Immediately remove a student comment, resource or Make & Share that contains offensive content including, but not limited to, hate speech, pornography, graphic violence or the promotion of illegal activity.
- Have a conversation before removing a student comment, resource or Make & Share that violates the KQED Learn Code of Conduct or your classroom norms, but doesn’t contain hate speech or is otherwise highly offensive.
- Best practice: Talk to a student one-on-one if inappropriate behavior arises on KQED Learn and have the student revise his/her own work to fix the problem. Note: If the content falls into the “offensive content” category, remove it immediately, then talk to your student.
