St. Joseph School is a Catholic institution committed to the teachings of Catholic doctrines and Christian values. St. Joseph School students have access to an academically rich technology environment. Within this environment our students and teachers apply technology skills throughout the learning process. They gain the skills necessary to become productive, responsible citizens in a global society where technology is an important resource for life long learning in a quickly changing world.
The mission of the St. Joseph Catholic School technology plan is to provide an environment that empowers teachers, students, administrators, and staff to become proficient in the application of technology. By applying these skills they will enhance opportunities for academic achievement, communicate with parents and the global world, and develop continuous life long learning through technology.
Student technology standards are aligned with the Diocesan and ISTE guidelines. To assure accountability for these standards, curriculum checklists for technical skills proficiency are constructed for staff and students. Teachers have access to technology tools that support curriculum, student performance and assessment. These tools not only address curriculum goals and student learning but also give access to professional development opportunities. Teachers implement curriculum plans and goals that include methods and strategies for applying technology to maximize student achievement.
Students use computers, software, SMART technology, and other technology tools to enhance learning individually and in collaborative groups. Age appropriate productivity tools (word processing, organizers, database, presentation software, etc.) are available for and used by students to collaborate, prepare publications and presentations, and produce creative projects. Students and teachers use internet, e-mail, wikis, blogs, hand-held devices for small groups, SMART response clicker systems, and web pages to collaborate, publish, and interact with the global community. Students use software and other media to communicate information and ideas effectively to audiences. Real-world resources and problem solving strategies are also used by students.Project based learning (PBL) is implemented along with various creative technology tools to engage students and prepare them to be competitive in our global world.
