Technology is everywhere, touching almost every part of our lives, our communities, and our homes. For children, computer technology has provided an indescribable wealth of resources, information, and knowledge. Since the introduction of the internet, students are now able to access information on whatever subject they want, wherever they want. Teachers, like students, can also find a whole host of resources on the internet which can provide inspiration and advice for classes. Teachers are also able to recommend good resources to students to further encourage and stimulate their learning.
At St. Anthony’s School, we challenge the student’s creative minds and continually introduce them to the latest technological developments. We currently have over 30 computers available for students use in our computer lab. Grades K-4 are equipped with tablets for students to grow academically while learning through technology. We also received a grant from The Horseshoe Foundation of Floyd County that allowed us to purchase a mobile technology lab to improve technological literacy for students in grades 5-8. These additional computers will provide students extended time to research, compose, and improve overall technological knowledge and proficiency. Each classroom, including our preschool, is equipped with a SMART board. All of the classrooms and administrative offices are networked, and the faculty and staff routinely use e-mail for their daily communications. Our teachers plan all of their lessons using an online lesson planner and also use a program that allows parents to connect to an online gradebook to see their child’s grade in any particular subject. The school also implents the use of Class Dojo, an online program that allows teachers to capture and generate data on behavior of their students, and they can then share that information parents and administrators.
