How We Teach and Learn

Devices: How We Support Student Devices

Students learn to use technology as part of the regular curriculum. Schools receive BCPS tech support from a team of technicians, a call center, and a help desk. Every classroom has a poster with “self-help” tips, and families can use Device Tips and Tricks for more suggestions. BCPS also provides loaner devices that are available when a device needs to be removed from the student for repair, as well as our own repair shop.

Videos and tutorials are available on each device and can be accessed by clicking the Device Support icon on the device’s desktop. Click Learn More under the picture of the device. Internet access is not required.

The videos include an overview of the device, how to rotate the screen, how to connect to wifi, swipe basics, and how to search for programs, use web browsers, use split screen, and shut down the device.

The tutorials include tips for using Microsoft Windows 10, Microsoft Word 2016, Microsoft Excel 2016, Microsoft PowerPoint 2016, and Microsoft OneNote 2016.


Growing Up Digital

Our award-winning Growing Up Digital website provides a wealth of resources for students and parents about safe and responsible use of technology. We describe what we are doing, as well as suggestions for students and parents in these categories: privacy, security, online relationships, cyberbullying, digital footprint, digital citizenship, student data, copyright, and healthy balance.
