Our Lady of Humility School is committed to infusing technology across the curriculum. Technology provides our faculty and students tools to reach curriculum objectives and prepares students for their future as critical thinkers and life-long learners. The learning spaces in our school are flexible and accessible to appropriate technology, supportive of student-centered learning, and places for idea sharing, collaboration, and innovation.
We expose our students to new and varied forms of technology in the classroom in order to supplement and broaden instruction. It is our position that using technology across content areas creates well-rounded and inquisitive students. The 1:1 initiative for middle school students empowers teachers and students to engage in learning through traditional and digital materials. 1:1 devices allow our students and teachers access to a variety of resources at all achievement levels, thus fostering collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical thinking in a student-centered environment.
