Bedford will officially use Google's web-based email, chat and calendar tools for all staff and students starting January 5th after Winter break.
This will reduce conflicts between Google and Apple programs and create a more consistent and predictable experience for everyone.
You will have until January 5th to familiarize yourself with Google's web-based apps (mail, chat and calendar) and transfer any data that you need to transfer. Apple's mail app (postage stamp), iChat and iCal will no longer be available.
Contact your tech team if you need any assistance.
The open BedfordBYOD wifi network is disabled due to conflicts with MAP testing. You can connect to the "Bedford" wifi. You can find the password in our beginning of the year tech slides. Slide 10
Starting October 10th, our school website will get a new look, will be easier to update, and will be organized more functionally. The new site design will be using the Google Sites platform, so no extra logins are necessary to update your web page...simply go to your page, click the edit button (pencil icon) and start editing.
If you currently do not have a page that you are responsible for updating and would like one, just let us know and we will get your page created. Once created, you will be able to add as many sub-pages as you would like.
If you see any discrepancies, or experience any difficulties with the new site, let us know right away so we can get it fixed.
We aim to make the website useful for staff and students, as well as a public-facing resource for those considering attending our school. So please take some time to think how you can update your page so that it is both functional for you and your students, as well as clean and informative for the general public.
The editing tools are similar to your Google Docs tools, so you should be fairly familiar how to change colors, fonts, etc. There is a lot of power inside your "Insert" menu as well. The Insert menu allows you to quickly add videos, Google Docs, images, links and much more.
