Equipping Students through Technology
The elementary schools in the Diocese of Buffalo recognize the importance of technology in teaching and learning. Most schools are equipped with interactive white boards, visual presenters, handheld devices and science probes. There are computers in the classrooms and up to date computer labs, staffed by a technology coordinator. Students in all grades attend computer lab regularly.
The effective use of educational technology empowers students and teachers. Through technology, students access, analyze and apply information to develop higher-order thinking skills such as problem solving and critical thinking. The curriculum addresses Digital Citizenship and Career Exploration. The goal of the technology curriculum at Catholic schools in the Diocese of Buffalo is to give students the life skills necessary to succeed in the 21st century.
