Bishop Lynch High School is excited to begin a new chapter in quality teaching and learning. The “1-to1” initiative using the “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) laptop program! We will take advantage of the enormous power of technology by ensuring that it is in the hands of every student.
With this new program, we will be offering the Office365 suite from Microsoft. This will provide each student with the web app version of Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, OneNote and Excel. They work while the computer is connected to the Internet. It also installs on your computer, so if you want to have Office installed, you can do so at no additional cost.
What are Office Web Apps? Here is an overview from Microsoft: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/web-apps/
If you still have questions about what kind of laptop you need, basically, a modern Windows or Macbook will do!
