Student-issued devices offer many benefits to the modern-day learner, including access to learning materials both in the classroom and at home and the ability to engage in real-time inquiry as questions arise. Laptops support project-based learning, allowing students to research, collaborate, and produce a final product to share with teachers, peers, and parents. Besides increasing student engagement and improving organizational skills, providing laptops for all students also ensures equitable access to digital tools for all Riverview students.
Riverview offers insurance to protect families against accidental laptop damage or theft. The fee is $25.00 and payable in Skyward.
ApParent allows a parent to view a student's laptop screen outside of school hours for monitoring purposes.
Skooler integrates Office 365 and other applications for maximum teacher efficiency. It also enhances communication between teachers, students, and parents. We look forward to teachers piloting Skooler this spring.
Class Policy is a device management software installed on both teacher and student laptops. Teachers can launch specific websites or applications during class on student devices, as well as limit applications to keep students on task or for assessment purposes.
School Data Sync synchronizes teacher and student rosters so our device management applications automatically know when classes start and end and which students are in each class.
