Flexible ethics!

When you install new software, sign up for some online service or read the Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) for using technology at an international school there are only two choices.

  1. Accept ALL the terms and conditions. You can then install the software, get the online service or use technology at the school.
  2. NOT accept all the terms and conditions. You then cannot install the software, get the online service or use technology at the school.

AUP shock!

The result – people do not read the terms and conditions but just click the “Accept” button or sign on the bottom of the form.

Are we conditioning our students to have flexible ethics?
