Students are welcome to bring their personal electronic devices to school as part of a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) or Personally Owned Devices (POD) framework. They should understand how a device works and how its use supports their learning.
There is no requirement for students to bring their own device. Students will have access to devices at the school needed to support their learning.
CBE users can access the Learner Accessible Wireless Network (LAWN) with wireless enabled devices that use an Internet browser for connectivity. All devices are subject to approval by the school and teacher.
Students must use their device appropriately and comply with AR 1062 – Responsible use of Electronic Information Resources. Ultimately, the teacher is the manager of the learning environment and will decide whether the device is being used appropriately.
Students are responsible for any devices they bring to school. The school is not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged items.
Connecting to the LAWN
Students and teachers will find the appropriate wireless network on their device, launch a browser and enter their CBE username and password. This method is called "Captive Portal" and is similar to what you see at most hotels.
Students may need to use their CBemail locker, the D2L locker or purchase a thumb drive with appropriate storage space.
We use Microsoft Office for both Mac and Windows platforms. It will be important for mobile handheld users to become familiar with compatible document formats.
