With today’s ever changing technology, it is critical to constantly evolve and upgrade technology options to prepare students for the digital world they face. Our school strives to provide current technological resources, giving students the tools they will need as they embark on their bright futures.
We comply with technology standards adopted by the Diocese of Fall River and the State of Massachusetts as a basis for curriculum. We have structured our curriculum to meet and exceed in those standards.
Our students have access to a recently updated, state-of-the-art computer lab. Students take weekly computer classes where they each have access to their own workstations equipped with audio devices to enhance the learning experience. The lab operates with high speed internet access runs in a secure environment protected by a strictly monitored firewall. Students may also be instructed on our lab’s high definition projector screen where teachers may demonstrate lessons as the students work independently.
In addition to our lab, we also equipped our classrooms with independent workstations and printers, as well as portable laptops with projectors where teachers regularly integrate technology to enhance lesson plans in various subjects.
This year we are also excited to pilot a new Apple iPad program with several classrooms participating. Using applications unique to that device and taking advantage of the intuitive touch-screen interface featured exclusively on tablets, teachers will now be able to instruct students with an entirely new scope of projects.
