Roman Catholic High School 2.0
iPads in the Classroom
Beginning with the 2012-2013 school year, Roman Catholic High School is excited to announce the implementation of a 1:1 iPad initiative, starting with the incoming freshmen. Because of the ever-changing face of education, students today require different tools and strategies that were not available a decade ago. The 1:1 iPad initiative will allow students and teachers to individualize and differentiate instruction in a way that is familiar to students, while still working on essential 21st century skill sets needed to meet state and national standards.
By providing new, innovative ways for students to access course information, the iPad will directly contribute to effective learning experiences. This affords students an opportunity to instantly access visual and text information while incorporating instructional technology in a fun, exploratory way. Additionally, access to iPads enables educators to deliver a customized, real-time curriculum and personalized instruction tailored to meet their students’ needs.
Roman Catholic High School is committed to providing a quality education to its students. In order to achieve this, the school has made certain that its educational programs remain fresh and on the cutting edge of technology. This is also why Roman Catholic will be adding over 40 hotspots to the school. By doing this, every area of the school, including the McSherry Annex will have wireless access to the internet.
In order to make certain that every member of the class of 2016 has the opportunity to participate in this program, members of the school are currently fundraising to help provide the iPad at a reduced cost.
Although the new initiative will involve the entire freshmen class, upperclassmen will also have the opportunity of using iPads to assist them in their respective academic programs.
