Technology in the Classroom

At Saint Jude the Apostle Catholic School we recognize the value of technology in the classroom as a teaching tool for the 21st century learner. Technology in the classroom helps prepare our students for their future in a digital economy.

Classroom Technology

All classrooms are equipped with an Epson Interactive Projector and document camera to assist with instruction and interactive learning experiences. Laptops, iPads, and/or Chromebooks are also available for student use in each classroom.

The Idea Lab

All grade levels attend the Idea Lab for technology instruction once a week. Teachers may also sign up for additional time slots for students to complete projects, research and other activities. Two 3D printers open up new learning activities, from design to production, as well as encouraging creativity and critical thinking.

iPads and Chromebooks – Grades K-5

  • Four iPad carts and three Chromebook carts are utilized in K-5th grades as teaching tools to enhance classroom instruction.
  • In the Primary grades, a set of 8 iPads can be found in each classroom. Teachers use them in learning centers or with small groups, or may combine with an iPad cart so students can work in pairs or individually to complete activities.

Chromebooks – Grades 6, 7 & 8

  • 6th, 7th & 8th grade students take part in a 1:1 Chromebook program where they access learning resources, class notes, teacher communication, and information on a daily basis.
