Technology & Resources
Today's students must be prepared to thrive in an ever-evolving technological landscape. St. Paul's is dedicated to helping students become empowered learners, collaborators, and innovative thinkers using technology across core content areas.
St. Paul's curriculum embeds access to and age-appropriate use of a range of technology, devices, and software. In an age where more and more of life happens through technology, we aim to foster a strong sense of digital citizenship and ethical tech usage in our classrooms.
St. Paul's teachers develop tech activities to build computational thinking, coding literacy, and executive function/time management. For example, students learn the basics of data modeling, use green screens for newscast programs, make creations using a 3D printer, build animations, and much more.
While students in all grade levels have access to iPads for classroom instruction, in middle school students:
- Issued individual iPads for home and school use
- Create digital art using Apple pencils
- Collaborate on shared documents (example: Office365)
- Build designed assets using Adobe Creative Cloud and AutoCad
St. Paul's strives to educate parents on how and when to introduce personal devices and social media access. Through parent seminars, workshops, and special presentations from tech thought leaders, St. Paul's continually strives to support families in an ever-changing world of personal technology.
