Connected Learning Program (Bring Your Own Device)
Not only will BYOD enhance our current curriculum but also allow us to expand our curriculum and educational opportunities in innovative, exciting ways we simply couldn't explore without this program. We can't wait to partner with you in this new pilot program!
Device Suggestions for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
Our wireless network has been designed to handle a variety of mobile devices. If a student’s device can connect to the Internet, it can be used in the classroom. Denver Christian does not endorse one particular device over another, however there are some things to consider when you purchase a device for school use:
Some smaller devices such as smart phones (Apple, Android or Windows) are good for searching the Internet and using a variety of apps, both beneficial functions for the classroom, however, it is challenging to create written content with a small screen and no external keyboard. We may use smart phones for video and sound recording, then use the files for content creation on the student's chromebook/laptop device.
Other devices such as iPads, Android Tablets or Kindle Fires have larger screens but they are limited in function compared to laptops (an external keyboard is essential for content creation). Chromebooks and laptops are better options; below are some recommendations for popular devices.
Nearly any chromebook would be sufficient as a lower-cost option for BYOD. These devices are designed to be used primarily while connected to the Internet, with most applications and data residing in "the cloud". Click here for recommendations, most around $200-$300.
There are many options for mid-grade laptops, ranging in price from $300-$700. These laptops differ from chromebooks because they have an operating system that allows programs to be installed and documents to be saved to the hard drive. An example mid-grade lapwould would be a Dell Inspiron 15.An example
Higher End Laptops
These laptops are costlier, but offer the best in processors, memory, speed and functionality. These will come with built-in software that is not always available online. An example would be a Macbook Air, costing around $1,000+.
