Though Catholic education is a centuries-old tradition, it is hardly behind the times. On the contrary, the Catholic schools of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia place great emphasis on utilizing modern technology to enhance the learning process.
Regardless of course of study or career goals, a solid grasp of technology skills is fostered in our schools each and every day. In classrooms from kindergarten through 12th grade, we strive to uphold a curriculum that correlates with the National Technology Standards for Students (NETS). In addition, all Catholic schools follow an Acceptable Use Policy to promote safe and ethical use of the Internet and all other technologies.
Technology has become an essential part of daily life and we incorporate cutting-edge technology in our schools to enrich the ways in which our teachers teach and our students learn. Our:
- Virtual Academy provides teachers and administrators with ongoing and useful professional development courses online.
- Smart classrooms feature interactive whiteboards, projectors and digital cameras to make learning engaging and interactive.
- Modern web tools, resources, and robust networks expand and support the world of learning for our students.
Schools are looking to further explore:
- Mobile Learning Devices such as Netbooks, iPads/Tablets, Cell Phones, One-To-One Laptops
- Web-Based Tools
- Digital Video and Photography
- Online Assessments for learning
