Student Laptop Program

Having access to a computer has become essential to students at every grade level. In the classroom, Kent Denver teachers leverage computer-based activities to enhance the overall learning experience. Outside of class, students are able to access the internet via our secure, filtered and monitored Wi-Fi network to continue relevant educational pursuits.

Additionally, Kent Denver uses an intuitive online learning management system called Canvas that allows teachers to post course descriptions, homework assignments and other relevant information online. This system empowers students to ask questions after school, upload homework quickly, easily—and always on time.

All Kent Denver students are required to bring an Apple laptop to school each day, and we are pleased to offer a student laptop purchase program that allows families to purchase a computer that meets their academic needs at a competitive price.

Technology Use Resources for Parents & Guardians

Technology is a wonderful tool—however its effects are significant. Technology use forms many of our subconscious daily routines and often removes our decision making control.

Adolescents form technology use habits as they also explore their identity, desiring independence and pushing boundaries. Social media takes this experimentation and creates a public, permanent, searchable archive that can be accessed with the push of a button. Yet this public sandbox is attractive to adolescents in ways we do not always understand.

Fortunately, there are steadily improving resources to help families, educators and adolescents be more intentional about their technology and media use. Common Sense Media is one such nonprofit committed to providing resources. Their mission is to “help kids thrive in a world of media and technology.”

Kent Denver has curated some of Common Sense Media’s best resources and contextualized them for our setting. These resources are divided into four categories: understanding the technology, developing family agreements, having ongoing conversations and asking questions.
