Technology instruction is incorporated throughout the curriculum. St. Lawrence is excited to share that we have an Instructional Technology Coach who works with teachers and students in the integration of technology throughout the curriculum.
Technology is an integral part of the curriculum at St. Lawrence Catholic School. The technology curriculum is carefully planned and executed to develop the skills necessary for technology literacy.
All full day students in grades K - 6 receive 35-45 minutes of a computer instruction weekly in the computer lab with additional class and individual time available as needed. The seventh and eighth graders receive computer instruction daily for one quarter each year, they also receive additional class and individual time as needed. Aligned with state and national standards, our technology curriculum will provide the foundation for creativity and innovation; communication and collaboration; research and information fluency; critical thinking, problem solving, and decision making; digital citizenship; and technology operations and concepts.
In the classroom
Our fifth grade is 1:1 with Chromebooks this year. Our first through 4th grade classrooms each have a full classroom set of iPads for student use. Three mobile laptop carts and two iPad carts are made available to teachers to use in their classroom with students in grades sixth through eighth. Each K-8 classroom is equipped with a Clevertouch interactive board. Our specials classes are equipped with either a Clevertouch board or a whiteboard and projector. Each Kindergarten through eighth grade classroom is equipped with a document camera. The computer lab/media center is equipped with miscellaneous audiovisual technology items such as digital cameras and digital video cameras. Our new STEM lab is equipped with various technologies to support their curriculum including LEGO Robotics.
Internet access is made available through our structured cable system and our wireless network. Shared drives between the computer lab and the classrooms allow students to develop and present multimedia presentations for assignments and projects. The network is secured through firewall, virus scans and Internet content filtering.
The school is required to submit a technology plan and post this document on our website for viewing. Please review the STL Technology Plan below.
