Technology is an integral part of the learning experience at St. Pius V School. Two computer labs are used to help teachers integrate technology into the learning process. The Callahan/Nelson Computer Lab, opened in June 2009, provides students with a technology curriculum as well as opportunities to integrate technology across the curriculum. Every student participates in a weekly Computer class.
Grades 6-8 share a portable classroom notebook lab and a class set of learnpads. Grades 1-5 share two class sets of iPads. This helps to increase the integration of technology in our classrooms. Three classroom sets of student remote keypads allow greater practice and response opportunity to students while teachers are able to monitor whole class response in seconds.
Each classroom has a computer workstation, a SMARTBoard (interactive whiteboard), and LCD projector. Educational software and textbook websites are used to enhance the learning experience of our students. Many teachers incorporate video into their lessons through the use of UnitedStreaming. UnitedStreaming is an online library of educational videos that was developed by Discovery Education. Professional development in technology is ongoing.
