Why iPads? The implementation of digital technologies has provided the foundation, for students and teachers to foster collaboration, strengthen communication and provide a dynamic wealth of academic resources at any time.
Research For example, a recent article in the Momentum Journal of the National Catholic Educational Association of a study conducted by Renee Stoeckle stated Catholic middle schools must offer a competitive academic curriculum while building character, promoting virtue and deepening faith.
More than any other programming, the technology initiative has changed the tone of our middle school. Our teachers have become facilitators of learning, changing even the physical structure of the classroom to be more conducive to collaborative, self-directed and project-based learning. The students show their Catholic identity by sharing a knowledge of the iPad with others.
