As 21st Century Jesuit educators, we strive to thoughtfully and intentionally engage with technology in our classrooms and to contemplate and act on its impact on the lives of our students.
Technological resources are powerful tools, and the appropriate use of technology is an essential element of being a good steward of God’s gift of intelligence. BC High is committed to the use of technology to strengthen each community member’s relationship with God.
Digital content is delivered in the form of eTexts, eBooks, iBooks and Course Packs through a variety of platforms. Students engage curriculum using a variety of common educational apps as well as subject specific apps, primarily Canvas, our Learning Management System. A sampling of commonly used apps include Notability, Adobe Voice, Google Drive, Explain Everything, iMovie, Garage Band, Socrative, Quizlet, Pages, Keynote and Baiboard.
Our 1:1 program was implemented in September, 2012. iPads are used as a tool to enhance teaching and learning and are the primary delivery source of course content for all of our students. Student use of technology and our 1:1 program will strive to enhance academic enrichment, college preparation and foster creativity, innovation, communication, collaboration, critical thinking, problem solving, decision making, digital literacy and is contemplative in action.
