In a dynamic, digitalized, and rapidly changing world, learners at Saint Edward’s School are encouraged to develop and grow in a community that openly embraces technology for academic preparation. This sustained passion for lifelong learning fosters resilience and leadership skills in the 21st century as part of a global, collaborative community.
Academic technology integration at Saint Edward’s School is founded on a full vertical articulation from Pre-K through 12th grade. Age- appropriate skills and competencies are taught explicitly and applied across all subject areas, and are embedded throughout a student’s academic experience. Wrapped into this teaching approach are aspects of modeling good digital citizenship, where the faculty teaches both by example and by measurable goals. As a result, students develop positive digital identities and knowledge about the short and long-term impacts of their online lives. They apply technology to solve authentic problems in different contexts, and become adept in finding, accessing, critically evaluating, and using information from diverse sources in a variety of media.
Also, students have the opportunity to strategically place technology into their curriculum for a specific college or university, or for a career-oriented focus beyond their graduation from Saint Edward’s School. Students are not only encouraged to be consumers but to be creators for solutions in our 21st century, information rich world.
