Technology Support

Technology is an integral part of what we do here at Putney. From blended learning classes, to Google Apps for Education, robotics, programming, three dimensional design, geographic information systems, science lab data collection and the burgeoning world of digital music and art creation, technology provides opportunities for project-based and hands-on learning. The Technology Department staff help students, faculty and staff learn new technologies, improve their skills, and see the creative potential technology allows.

A wide variety of resources are available including copiers and printers, three dimensional printers, video production equipment, digital SLR cameras, MIDI controllers and music composition tools, ProTools and Ableton based music production and recording equipment, photo printers and much more. Campus computer labs include the Adobe Creative Cloud suite of applications for video production, graphic design, digital photography and desktop publishing.

Technical Requirements For Putney

Students should plan on bringing a laptop with them to campus and using it on a daily basis both in and out of classes. We have a campus-wide wireless network and are platform independent and support Mac, Windows, and Linux computers. When you purchase a computer for school, first and foremost choose one that you are comfortable with. Purchase a three year warranty if possible (computers do break, and having the extra protection is important). We would recommend purchasing a machine with at least 4GB of RAM, a 120GB hard drive, and a 2Ghz processor. If you would like advice on purchasing a computer please do not hesitate to contact me.
