  • Online Learning

    All Burke students have school-issued iPads through our 1:1 tablet program. As technology and media already play a significant role in our classrooms, we hope that this transition will be relatively seamless – and even enable us all to learn and create in new ways.
    In designing our online learning program, we followed these principles and goals:

    • Deliver a meaningful and engaging learning experience to students while Burke is closed
    • Keep the expectations and execution as simple, clear, and consistent as possible
    • Leverage existing technologies (e.g., SIS, iPads), skills, and habits of teachers and students
    • Support teachers, students, and families
  • Required Technologies

    Checklist for Online Learning:

    • Internet access
    • Burke-issued iPad
    • Burke Student Information System (SIS)
    • Google Apps: Email, Drive, Docs, etc.
    • Google Hangouts Meet*
    Need support or have questions? Let us know.

    * Requires a laptop, desktop, or the Hangouts app on a phone or iPad that has been updated to iPad OS 13.3.
