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.
