Technology Department Hardware Recommendations

The use of technology is a big part of our culture here at Dana Hall. Our use of technology has only increased since we have had to adjust to remote work and distance learning.

All of us use either ipads or computers to work and sometimes replacement accessories or additional hardware is needed.

Here are some hardware recommendations:

This monitor has an HDMI connection, you can easily connect your laptop to this external monitor.

For some of you who have laptops with only USB C ports such as the newer Macbook Pros and Macbook Airs, you will need an adapter to connect the HDMI cable into the monitor.
