St. John the Baptist Catholic School is committed to implementing 21st century skills in technology. To that end, each classroom is equipped with a Promethean Board, document camera, and Apple TV. Technology is used to balance individual needs and instruction with participation in learning. Each K-5 classroom has a set of six iPads, a mobile laptop cart, and a mobile iPad cart.
The School Council, along with the technology committee, has dedicated much time and effort over the last three years preparing for and developing 1:1 technology program for our school. We are in our third year since we inaugurated our 1:1 technology program at SJB Catholic School, by providing an iPad device for every student in sixth through eighth grade. At present, Grades 4-8 use 1:1 Chromebooks, and Grades K-3 use 1:1 iPads for their in class technology. We intend to capitalize on digital opportunities while still providing the face-to-face relational support between students, teachers, and parents.
