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. For assistance with login issues and more go to the technical support site.
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: 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. For assistance with login issues and more go to the technical support site.
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. If you aren't getting the messages you expect, add our email address to your address book or "safe senders list".
MyCBE / PowerSchool: this application connects to our student information system, providing parents, students and staff access to academic information and transactions. It allows parents to view their children’s schedule, grades and attendance; see their learning activities using Brightspace by D2L; register for transportation and noon supervision; pay fees and request fee waivers; and book school conferences.
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. Students should understand how a device works and how its use supports their learning. All devices are subject to approval by the school and teacher. Students are responsible for any devices they bring to school. The school is not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged items.
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.
Students must use their device responsibly. You can look on the CBE website for more information on bringing devices to school.
Our school is wireless! Students, staff and guests can learn how to get connected on the CBE Wireless page.
