One Connected Community
The One Connected Community technology program provides incoming freshman with a state-of-the-art Apple iPad. This initiative offers our students the opportunity to participate in a global educational environment. The 21st century requires that our learners be able to navigate smoothly, effectively, and purposefully through the world of technology. Other technology components at Central Catholic include Moodle and Power School, to help parents and teachers stay connected.
Goals of One Connected Community:
- Develop an effective model for project-based instruction. Shifting technology instruction into subject-area classrooms enables students to develop skills required to be self-directed, independent, life-long learners which will help them compete in the global arena for college placement and employment opportunities.
- Allow teachers to differentiate instruction and gives students the creative freedom to explore.
- Help students them learn, create, and communicate.
Classroom Technology Integration
Promethean Boards improve learning productivity by developing, integrating and implementing innovative 21st century learning environments. The use of the Apple TV in combination with an iPad and Promethean Board provides a mobile platform from which classroom activities can be initiated. Through the use of several apps, teachers can provide notes, display steps and processes to problems, initiate the display of media (pausing and resuming as needed from any location in the classroom), and allow students to participate from their own seats in a variety of interactive activities.
