All Saints students have the finest of 21st century learning tools for proven success in the classroom.
The 2011-2012 year has brought our 500+ student exciting new technology initiatives including the brand new e3 Science Park for active, hands-on exploration and learning, a mobile iPad cart to bring the latest instructional technology to all students, and a growing partnership with the Maritime Aquarium for science education.
We believe that in order to insure the future success of our students, it is necessary to equip them now with 21st century skills. Today, teachers need to integrate the 3 R’s with the 4 C’s: critical thinking skills, and problem solving, communication, collaboration, as well as creativity and innovation. Our students also need to exhibit proficiency in technological literacy. These are the skills that will distinguish students who are prepared for careers in the 21st century from those who are not.
This fall All Saints was the first elementary school in the Bridgeport Diocese to purchase iPads for the classroom. A mobile iPad cart offers teachers yet another tool for engaging student instruction. The results so far have been outstanding. The students are excited about using this tool, and teachers are readily able to integrate it into their curriculum. In addition, we have two fully equipped media labs, a Library Media Center, and Smartboards in many classrooms as tools to integrate technology in all areas of the curriculum.
