Philosophy

We believe that Technology offers teachers and students essential computer skills for research, writing, and electronic creativity that are integral to the curriculum:

  • Computer technology is integrated throughout the building and is available to teachers in the classroom and in the lab.
  • Students gain proficiency through appropriate instruction and develop their computer skills through experience and practice.
  • Students learn to access electronic information, apply their computer skills to other areas of the curriculum, and develop a personal enjoyment of technology.

We believe the curriculum should be developmentally appropriate and provide exposure to a variety of information access skills:

  • Engage students interest through presentations of available materials.
  • Encourage students to demonstrate Christian values, by respecting intellectual property rights, and recognizing the importance of intellectual freedom.

We believe instruction will:

  • Enable students to identify needs and access relevant information
  • Encourage students to respect and care for school property.
  • Expose students to numerous electronic searching sites and pre-determined web sites.
  • Teach the students researching skills.

We believe assessment should reflect instruction of archdiocesan exit expectations and state standards:

  • Students will independently access and assess materials.
  • Students will demonstrate familiarity with select search engines and software.
  • Students will demonstrate age/grade appropriate behavior.

Goals:

  • Technology will provide resources to faculty for classroom teaching.
  • Students will develop their own personal enjoyment of technology.
  • Students will develop skills to assess information.
  • Students will become independent users of Information Science.
