Technology

St. Monica strives to provide our students with the best possible education preparing them not just to survive but excel in a 21st century learning environment. It is essential that we incorporate the technology that exists today so that they will have the skills to be successful. This is why at St. Monica all classrooms are equipped with Smartboard technology which teachers use to deliver lessons and students use when participating in them. Within each Kindergarten through 5th grade class, iPads are available to be used by students in the classroom. Middle school students participate in 1:1 technology and are issued an iPad upon entering 6th grade. IPads are ideal for differentiated learning. All students participate in Technology class where they use desktop computers for learning. But wait let us not forget about the software, St. Monica believes it is important too!

St. Monica provides students  with a multitude of opportunities become very comfortable and very familiar with software used for learning. Ipad apps, and lessons in iStation, IXL and Reflex prescribed by the teacher can be used for enrichment or remediation. Online textbooks move students from the traditional textbook and allow for a more enriching experience. Students will be able to transfer skills learned using Moodle, a learning management system, to high school and beyond. Cloud based accounts, iCloud and Office 365 promote collaborative learning and offer the convenience of anywhere, anytime learning.
