Discovering personal greatness in pre-school through grade 8 students - Burlington, Vermont

Technology

Students in all grade levels are introduced to technology and use it in a variety of ways. Mater Christi has 13 SMART Boards throughout both buildings. These interactive whiteboards allow teachers to create, collaborate and share information in all subject areas and through the response systems, teachers are able to gauge the student learning and have instant analytics to see if students are understanding a concept.
In addition, all the students have access to iPads and MacBooks that are used every day. The students research topics, read textbooks online, prepare and present information and create art and music using this exciting technology. The classrooms also all have mini computer lab stations to work on projects and the school has a computer lab for entire classrooms to use. Our Library and Media Center is a space where students are able to further learn and work together using the latest technology.
