Carmel Catholic High School launches ‘1:1’ computing program
Learning by doing, collaborating in teams, solving real-world problems and learning by serving others: these are the cornerstones of the Carmel Catholic High School experience, and they have become the defining characteristics of the school’s 1:1 student computing program planned for next school year. The primary objective of Carmel’s 1:1 student computing program is to enhance student learning and to expand the learning environment beyond the classroom. Implementation of the 1:1 student computing program is scheduled for the 2012/13 school year, with a full student roll out in, August 2012.
“Technology is an increasingly integral means of education in our changing world. Our 1:1 student computing program will provide every student with a Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet to facilitate a student-centered, experience-rich education relevant to the 21st Century,” said Principal Lynne Strutzel.
“Computer technology is already integrated into the academic experience at Carmel Catholic. In its many forms, technology is utilized as a tool to support learning across all disciplines and to foster communication, collaboration, creation, organization and production in the classroom,” she added.
“There is no question that this technology initiative is essential for our students. Having ‘anywhere, anytime’ access to a personal tablet allows greater differentiation for learning, as well as a space for personalized, flexible learning beyond the classroom walls,” Strutzel said.
As a college preparatory school, Carmel Catholic has made a long-term commitment to infuse technology into classrooms across all departments to enhance student-centered learning.
