Digital Resources:

FCPS offers many digital resources that students and parents can use throughout the school year and summer months. Some of the resources include:

Blackboard Mobile App:
FCPS middle and high school  students have an opportunity to utilize the Blackboard Mobile Learn App, which provides students access to FCPS 24-7 courses through their iOS or Android phone or tablet.

FCPS 24-7 Mobile is a valuable tool to keep students connected to their courses.

Using the mobile app students will be able to:

  • Check announcements
  • Check assignments
  • Take Blackboard tests (not tests in Horizon)
  • View documents
  • Create discussion posts and journal entries and comment on blogs
  • Upload content available on your device, such as pictures

To utilize the app, students will need to find the Blackboard Mobile Learn App in the Google Play or iTunes App store. Students will download the Blackboard app, and search for the school “Fairfax County Public Schools, VA”. There is no charge to use the app. Once the app is downloaded and installed then the student will log into the app using his/her FCPS 24-7 username and password.

Technology@Home Program:
Are you thinking of purchasing an new computer for your child or are you in need of upgrading your software?  Before you go out and buy anything, make sure to check out the FCPS website’s Technology@Home page to find information on how to get Microsoft Office 365 for free and discounts on other software, smartphones, and Dell and HP computer equipment. http://www.fcps.edu/it/technology/TechnologyHome.shtml

Personal Devices at Cooper:
Fairfax County Public Schools is committed to assisting students and staff in creating a 21st century learning environment. In efforts to support this progress, students will be able to access our wireless network with their personal devices (laptops, netbooks, tablets, smart phones, etc) during the school day. With classroom teacher approval, students may bring and use their own devices to access the internet and collaborate with other students. By allowing students to use their own technology on campus we are hoping to increase the access all students have to the technology they need to succeed.

Please see Mr. Cunningham or Mrs. Dorman in room 201 if you need help accessing the wireless network on your device.
