How We Use Technology
Beacon students use computer applications in much of their work, from science simulations to art installations. We are a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) school; we ask students to purchase and bring laptops and mobile devices to school when needed. Our school’s wireless Internet system allows ready (and secure) access to the Internet via a high-speed circuit with all traffic passing through a firewall to block objectionable content.
Apple and Windows devices are suitable for nearly all needs, but we have a bias toward Apple equipment because of our commitment to the Apple TV devices for wireless projection in the classrooms.
