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.​​

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

  • 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.​

  • ​​​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.

​​​​
  • 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".

Technology Tools

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

Student-Owned Electronic Devices and Wireless Access

Our school is wireless. Students, staff and guests can learn how to get connected on the CBE Wireless page.

Students may use their own devices at their teacher’s discretion to personalize their learning within the classroom. Provided they are being used appropriately, students may also use personal cell phones and digital devices during non-instructional time (i.e., before school, lunch hour, and after school).

It is important that parents/guardians and students remember the school is not responsible for the loss, damage, or theft of student electronic devices.

We view digital citizenship as a shared responsibility between students, their families and the school. We appreciate families taking the time to discuss what being a “good digital citizen” looks like with their children and supporting the work of the school. Should students not adhere to the Admirable Use protocols, violation of the above expectations may result in disciplinary measures as outlined in CBE Administrative Regulation 1062.

​Bringing Your Own Device to School

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.​​
