I teach programming classes at a K-8 school in Seattle. To date we've just done Scratch, but for the oldest students, age 13 and 14 in 8th grade, I would like to teach w…
I would like to use Webmaker as part of my curriculum, but am concerned over the legal terms and conditions, specifically:
"By using Webmaker, you agree that you are at least 18 years old or are acting with the consent and supervision of your parent; and you have full power, capacity, and authority to accept these Terms on behalf of yourself, or if applicable, your employer or other entity that you represent."
What are the recommendations for complying with this for 13 year old students?
Would it be acceptable to have a signed permission slip? Or is there an even more lightweight or friction-free (ideally paperless) means of establishing "consent and supervision"? Their parents won't really be supervising them: I will, in the classroom.
Thanks and I hope I get a solution to this as this looks like just the ticket to get our class off to a great start!
