Ed Tech 1:1 Information

Here at BMCHS, we want the 1:1 transition to go as smoothly for everyone as possible. Since its launch in the 2019 Fall Semester, we’ve found what works, what doesn’t, and how we can go forward in this process together.

DEVICES:

Device specifications can be found here: https://www.bishopmanogue.org/device-specifications/

Please note: Going forward, we will no longer recommend Macbook devices. They cannot be used with a stylus, a tool that we’ve found encourages students toward success with classroom learning.

HELPDESK:

In order to generate a Helpdesk Ticket, students and staff may email helpdesk@bishopmanogue.org describing the issue they are having with their WiFi/device. Tickets should receive a response from the Ed Tech within 24-48 hours. Helpdesk Protocol is necessary because it makes it easier to notice and track common problems.

TOOLS:

  • Students now have full access to Adobe Creative Suite! All they need are their student email/password to login.
  1. Login at Adobe.com
  2. Download Adobe Creative Cloud here: https://www.adobe.com/creativecloud/desktop-app.html
  • Google Suite: The Miners 101 Bootcamp is available for all students who need help with any of the Google applications.

SAFETY:

Please refer to the Handbook for specific guidelines on Digital Safety. A Digital Citizenship curriculum will be implemented to supplement students’ engagement with devices in the classroom.
