Technology Used for Learning at the CBE

Digital technologies are changing the way we deliver educational programs to our students. We use a variety of technology tools to support personalize each student’s learning. Tech tools include hardware (such as laptops, iPads, iPods) and software (like G Suite for Education, and D2L). Visit the CBE website for more information on some of the CBE-wide digital technologies.

  • Brightspace, by Desire2Learn (D2L), is an online environment available to all our staff and students for collaboration, communication, organization and assessment. It is also the virtual classroom for the online programs offered through CBe-learn, the CBE’s online learning school.

  • Iris: a web-based teaching and learning application consisting of student learning plans, learner profiles, resource library and teacher and administrator workspaces.

  • ​Gmail and G Suite for Education (formerly Google Apps for Education or GAFE): an online space to create documents, presentations and websites wherever internet access is available. It is solely for teacher and student-created work, and not for student records, grades, demographics or other such information.

  • eLibrary: an online catalogue for all CBE school libraries (learning commons) with detailed information on books, DVDs and other resources that are available to borrow and online resources offered by Calgary Public Library and others. It is available to parents/guardians, students and staff.

  • SchoolMessenger: a mass communication tool that allows schools to easily and securely send email, phone and text messages to parents/guardians. To receive all relevant messages from our school, be sure to subscribe. To change the email address or phone number where you receive your messages, contact our school.

  • HomeLogic: an online environment that makes it easy for parents/guardians to review information about your child’s grades, assignments, schedule and attendance information. It allows for 24/7 access anywhere internet connectivity is available, even on a smartphone or tablet.

  • Learning Commons: the concept of the traditional library is changing to include technology, online tools and spaces for collaboration and exploration.
