mg摆脱电子游戏学校, we believe technology is a powerful tool for enhancing our learning and teaching. 结果是, an Overlake education integrates the use of technology in numerous aspects of our school program. School-wide adoption of Canvas LMS (Learning Management System) since 2013 is just one example of how technology is enhancing our educational program.

In order to support the increased use of technology, the school launched a student device program in 2015 which requires all students to bring their own device to school. Use of any devices, personal or school-owned, are subject to Overlake's 技术 Use Policy. Assistance is available for students receiving financial aid.

Please find more information about the program below, and don't hesitate to reach out at the contact information below with any questions.

The following devices are recommended by Overlake and meet the requirements of our BYOD program:

  • MacBook Air或MacBook Pro 
  • 微软Surface Pro或Surface Laptop

We 强烈推荐 that students run the most up-to-date operating systems. If you are running 窗户 in S Mode, please review Microsoft's documentation on turning S Mode off. Please ensure students have run all updates prior to the start of school and are administrators on their computers, at least for the first weeks of school to configure printers, 无线网络, 以及其他必需的软件. Students are encouraged to use a modern browser like 谷歌Chrome, 微软的优势, or Mozilla Firefox, which works best with Canvas and other Overlake services. 我们也 要求使用 反恶意软件和防病毒保护. We discourage using alternate operating such as Linux systems unless the student is self-sufficient in supporting themselves. Please note that Chromebooks and iPads do not currently meet our device requirements.

If you wish to buy something different from the recommended models, it must meet or exceed the following minimum requirements:

  • 8 gb内存
  • 256GB存储空间
  • 无线网络 6或6e
  • 8小时电池寿命 
  • 麦克风和前置摄像头
