Technology for Students in Grades 7-12

At Mt. Sentinel, we have transistioned to the Google Apps for Education platform for our students. This platform is universally accessible to any device with an internet connection. We also encourage students to bring their own device (BYOD) to help improve their learning. For some students, this takes the form of a smartfphone or table, and for others it takes the form of a laptop/notebook. 

The following are not necessary but recommendations for those students whose families choose to provide them a device at school. We have many school owned devices available for learning. 

If your student is bringing a tablet or smartphone (Windows, Androis, iOS) the fllowing apps will be used in our building (specific classroom teachers may recommend other apps at their discretion.)

Free Apps:

  • Google Drive
  • Google Docs
  • Google Classroom
  • Gmail
  • Google Calendar
  • Google Spaces
  • Google Slides
  • Google Sheets

If your studnet is bringing a laptop or notebook please ensure it is: 

Any operating system is fine (Windows, Apple, Linux, etc) as long as it has an internet connection and Google chrome.

Many parents and students feel that it is valuable to purchase a device for their students, especially in the senior grades (10-12). These are the devices we are currently purchasing as a school and fit with our standardization model set out by our Information Technology department. 

Updated School District 8 technology standards include: any chromebook model and windows laptops with Windows 8 or news, with at least 1 GB of RAM. 

That being said, any laptop or notebook with an internet connection and good battery will be more than adequate.
