We recognize that our students are children of the 21st century media culture, and as such, are digital learners and multi-taskers comfortable with electronic devices of all kinds. The school recognizes the vital importance of All Saints' students becoming responsible, aware, proficient, and productive IT users.
We foster an all-inclusive technological environment, meaning the curriculum is designed to serve those who are interested in art, programming, music, and video among other topics. Students work to cultivate a diverse technological skill set. At the end of the school year, students should be able to identify the most apt tool for a given task.
Our Technology Curriculum is project-based. A variety of topics are covered, ranging from digital image editing to computer hardware to programming.
Students establish a considerable comfort with the skill and/or application meaning that the student becomes adept at executing specific tasks, troubleshooting, and navigating a tool. The student has a solid conceptual grasp of the tool and, in turn, can put concepts into practice effectively and demonstrates and reinforces technological skill set by completing projects.
Integrated use of technology
Students use technology to enhance and facilitate their understanding of various types of subject matter.
Students become mindful of social and ethical aspects of technology. Specifically, they learn how their behaviors affect technology use. Examples of topics would be cyberbullying, Internet safety, copyright and fair use, among myriad topics.
The ability to verbalize technology will be emphasized throughout the year. Students will be expected to explain concepts, conduct demonstrations, and collaborate with each other. While students are encouraged to help one another during project periods the assistance should only consist of oral guidance.
