ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY

In addition to weekly technology classes, our primary grades have a Chromebook cart available to to them. By using Chromebooks in the classroom we are developing students’ critical thinking and problem-solving skills while guiding students to grow into good stewards of their faith. Students learn to integrate technology into their everyday school life. By using a combination of textbooks, internet research, games, typing programs, and other online sources for their course work, they develop the ability to research and seek answers in a variety of ways to the questions that are presented to them.  Faculty guidance, online collaboration with peers and the ability to access classroom management pages in Haiku teach our students to take responsibility for their own learning in this digital age.
