Acceptable Devices

Computers

Just about any laptop or netbook is acceptable and will work on our network. Laptops need to have Windows XP or newer operating system with a working web browser. Windows based, Apple, or Chromebook operating systems should work without issue. All devices will need to be wireless enabled and need to have a screen size of 9.5” (10” class) or larger.

 

Mobile Devices

iPads & Android Tablets will work on the network. Please remember that the use of these devices, as with any personally owned device, is strictly up to the teacher. All devices will need to be wireless enabled and need to have a screen size of 9.5” (10” class) or larger.

 

Which should I bring?

We believe this depends on the classes you have and the projects you are working on. Mobile devices are great because they are small, easy to carry, and have access to many of the online applications you will be using. They are great for researching, planning, and collaborating. They are not great for creating new products. Though laptops and netbooks are heavier to carry around, they allow you to be more productive in situations where you will be creating documents, movies, or other digital media. We suggest working with your teachers to determine what technology will best enable you to be successful.
