Saint Dominic School continues to lead the way in educational technology! Our kindergarten and first grade students are loving their new SMART table learning centers! The tables provide ready-made lessons and 3D multimedia content that enable the students to interact collaboratively to achieve shared learning goals. In addition, a new language arts program for our kindergarten through fifth grade was purchased, providing a strong reading, writing, and grammar foundation and offering an extensive array of digital media.
Our seventh and eighth grade 1:1 iPad initiative has been a complete success! To further enhance this program and provide our students with 21st Century resources, we recently purchased digital textbooks. Our upper-grade students now have access to the most current e-text books available through Discovery Education and McGraw Hill Publishers. Our new e-textbooks are easily accessed from the students' iPads and can be accessed at home through any tablet or PC with an Internet connection.
