Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School & St. Kateri catholic academy technology
The changing landscape of the world’s information to digital form will require today’s student to have a different set of skills than what was required just a decade ago. Future graduates must be equipped with not just the three R’s, but also with 21st century skills of problem solving, critical thinking, communication, and technological literacy. Students will need to be able to quickly find, synthesize and communicate information and collaborate with colleagues--not just in their own office, but within a global community of colleagues and customers.
Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School wants to ensure that all of our students develop the skills and knowledge necessary to responsibly navigate this emerging modern world. CSCHS implemented a 1:1 (one student having their own device) program using the Apple iPad to create a connected, self-motivated, and unique educational experience for our students. Starting in the 2017/2018 school year we will be deploying a 1:1 Google ChromeBook program.
Some of our goals of the 1:1 program are:
- Enhance and accelerate learning beyond the normal classroom
- Leverage technology for individualizing instruction and allowing all of our students to excel.
- Promote collaboration, increasing student engagement within the classroom as well as projects outside of the classroom
- Strengthen the necessary 21st century technology skills necessary for future student success.
The technology also increases access to digital curriculum, in place of traditional print textbooks and classroom equipment. The opportunity to use 1:1 devices gives students access to anywhere, anytime learning.
