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. Martin de Porres 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 Sacred Heart lab has 25 computers and 22 laptops on cart and 23 iPads. The middle school lab has 19 computers and 2 laptop carts with 24 laptops each. St. Martin de Porres School has over a 1:1.4 ratio of Computers per Student. 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. Martin de Porres School Technology Plan seeks to further advance our curriculum, training, and infrastructure initiatives.
