What are Digital Resources?
Digital resources are district-wide software applications which include but are not limited to Google Apps for Education, Seesaw, Learning A-Z, Vista Higher Learning Online Platform, Savvas Success Net, among other platforms for student use.
Why use Google Apps for Education?
- To provide students with access to current technology applications and free tools designed for collaboration with other students and teachers
- To give students the ability to work on their documents both in school and at home - anytime and anywhere from any Internet connected device.
- To help students work collaboratively, engage in peer-editing of documents, and publish for a wider audience within the Beaverton School District
- To facilitate “paperless” transfer of work between students and teachers
- To provide adequate long-term storage space for student work
- To actuate potential cost savings in terms of software licensing and document storage
What if I don't give parental consent for my child to access digital resources?
If you do not give permission for your child to be given digital resources, your child will not be able to use most outside digital resources available through the Beaverton School District that require a student login. Your child will not have access to devices requiring a Beaverton School District login. This includes digital devices such as Chromebooks which are intended for students to check-out and take home.
