Technology

WELCOME

The students of the Bishop Feehan High School will be prepared to use technology as an integral tool in their daily lives. In order to become functional and responsible citizens in a technological society, students must become life-long learners, critical thinkers, active collaborators, and creative problem solvers. We are a 1:1 school and the individual use of an iPad is a way to empower students to maximize their full potential and to prepare them for their educational and career future. Teaching and learning through the integration of an iPad/technology increases student engagement and ownership of learning and allows for effective transformation of curriculum that can take place anywhere and at anytime. By using technology effectively, it will lead to increased student engagement and thereby increase student achievement in all areas. All students will be immersed in a technology rich environment which motivates, engages, and challenges students to learn 21st century skills, as it will be an integral part of their future.
