技术资源:

BB&N began a "one-to-one" laptop initiative in 2016 at the Middle School. As of September 2018, all Upper School students are expected to own laptops. The Upper School is multi-platform, so students may bring any model of Mac or Windows laptop. WiFi无处不在. 除了他们自己的笔记本电脑, students also have access to higher-end computers for photography and video courses, 科学实验用计算机, and iPads in 世界语言 and some science courses. The library is a hub of digital activity and loans laptops and iPads to students who might have a problem with their own. The school is a member of the 全球网络学院 consortium which offers a variety of online courses available to juniors and seniors.

The Internet Café in our dining commons is another popular spot for checking email and staying connected.

整个学校的日子, 和家里, 学生们用电脑写论文, 研究信息, 分析数据, 创建多媒体, 访问他们的课程网站, 全球和沟通. BB&N uses Google Apps as our collaborative, cloud-based productivity platform. The school's learning management system is PowerSchool Learning. All teachers maintain sites within PowerSchool to provide students with organized access to instructional resources. The school also licenses Microsoft Office so students can download it to their own laptops at no cost.

各学科使用科技的例子:

  • 英语 类 use Google Docs for everyday composition and Microsoft Word for their more extensive 写作 projects.
  • 数学课使用数学可视化网站, 电子表格, 和其他软件以及图形计算器. Several programming courses are offered (see below).
  • 历史 类 use a variety of websites for research. 一些课程使用BB创建的特殊网站&N teachers as their primary source of information resources.
  • World Language 类 use computers to help students read, write, and speak in these languages. Language 类 also make use of the web to access media and publications from other cultures.
  • 科学 类 use laptops and probes to gather and analyze experimental data. Students also use 软件 simulations of experiments that may be too difficult or dangerous to carry out in the lab.
  • Art 类 use Adobe PhotoShop and Premier for image and video editing. In music 类, the computer is used to aid in composition, arranging, and orchestration.
  • Librarians work closely with the faculty using periodicals databases in various subject areas, 尤其是历史. The library also gives incoming 9th graders extensive instruction on how to carry out digital research.

计算机编程 & 编码:

The 数学与计算机科学 Department offers various opportunities for students to learn and practice programming. In Geometry (which all students take) there is a three week unit in either Java or Snap programming. For students who want more programming, the following elective courses are offered:

  • 计算机编程
    This introductory computer science course provides students with a comfortable and engaging first programming experience. 主题包括编程方法, 条件, 循环, 方法, 数组, 字符串, 对象, 和图形. This course is designed to prepare students for a college-level programming course, including BB&N的AP计算机科学课程. 主要语言是Java. Prerequisite: Generally a B- or higher in the current math course and permission of the 数学与计算机科学 Department.
  • Advanced Placement Computer 科学 A (Plus Data Structures)
    This is an introductory college-level computer science course with an emphasis on programming methodology, 算法, 和数据结构. 主要主题包括数组, 方法, 类, 对象, 链表, 树, 递归, 还有搜索和排序算法. Participating students are prepared to take the AP Computer 科学 A exam. 这门课程超出了AP课程大纲的范围, including the set of topics typically composing a full year of college level computer science. 主要的编程语言是Java. 以前的编程经验是不必要的. Prerequisite: Generally a B or higher in an honors math course, a B+ or high in 计算机编程 or comparable programming experience, and permission of the 数学与计算机科学 Department.
  • 计算机科学高级主题“, (12年级)
    This course offers students the opportunity to learn about topics that go beyond the Advanced Placement Computer 科学 A curriculum. 近年来, students in this course constructed a simulated computer system as they learned about the interactions of hardware, 软件, 编译器, 和操作系统. Other topics studied in this course could include advanced data structures and 算法, 并行计算, 机器学习, iOS应用程序开发, 和计算机图形学. This is a hands-on course and students learn through a series of individual and small-group projects. Prerequisite: Prior programming experience and permission of the 数学与计算机科学 Department.

There are also opportunities for students to join clubs, 包括计算机编程俱乐部, 机器人俱乐部, 以及移动应用开发俱乐部.
