At BCHS we use Google Classroom for student course materials, resources and learning activities. This can be accessed easily with a 10-12" Chromebook. The advantages of this device is:
- low cost ($250-$350)
- light weight
- reasonable battery life (10 hours)
- multi-tasking capable
- support Flash and multiple browsers
Students are welcome to bring full size laptops including Macbooks. Laptops with screen sizes larger than 15" tend to be quite large and heavy and may not be as portable. Tablets, including iPads are not fully supported by Alberta Learning for accessing LearnAlberta.ca resources and PAT/Diploma exams.
