Enhancing student achievement and learning are key to the goal of the technology program. Teachers apply instructional practices to help students become critical thinkers, problem solvers, and lifelong learners. Technology serves as the thread found throughout the general curriculum.
St. Elizabeth Elementary School has adopted technology which is integrated with the educational process. Therefore, teachers integrate 21st century skills within the context of their lessons and use technology as a resource for learning. Technology is a part of classroom functionality, as well as, administrative and student record management and communications. The school has 8 computers in each middle school classroom, 4 eMacs in each grade school classroom and two laptop carts for a total of 44 laptops. St. Elizabeth Elementary School has over a 2:1 ratio of Student per Computers. Student use of technology is relevant and applicable to real world research, critical thinking and problem solving. As students increase their knowledge, so too will they develop an understanding of the moral and ethical issues related to technology in contemporary society. The St. Elizabeth Elementary School Technology Plan seeks to further advance our curriculum, training and infrastructure initiatives.
