“Change is happening at lightning speed, and if educators respond to it at a turtle’s pace, we run the risk of failing to prepare a generation of our future workforce for jobs that don’t exist today but will tomorrow, jobs that require citizens to be engaged, think critically, and act together.”

Matt Levinson, From Fear to Facebook

The changing landscape of the world’s information to digital form will require today’s student to have a different set of skills than what was required just a decade ago. Future graduates must be equipped with not just the three R’s, but also with 21st century skills of problem solving, critical thinking, communication, and technological literacy. Students will need to be able to quickly find, synthesize and communicate information and collaborate with colleagues--not just in their own office, but within a global community of colleagues and customers. 

Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School & Academy wants to ensure that all of our students develop the skills and knowledge necessary to responsibly navigate this emerging modern world. Cardinal Stritch implemented a 1:1 (one student having their own device) program using the Apple iPad. Starting in the 2017/2018 school year have deployed a 1:1 Google Chromebook program for MS and HS! We chose to change our 1:1 device to a Chromebook as it is a better tool to create a connected, self-motivated, and unique educational experience for our students.

Some of our goals of the 1:1 program are:

Promote collaboration, increasing student engagement within the classroom as well as projects outside of the classroom.
Leverage technology for individualizing instruction and allowing all of our students to excel.
Strengthen the necessary 21st century technology skills necessary for future student success.
We utilize multiple web/content filters to protect our students. Google offers a wide array of protection to all of its G-Suite for Education apps as well as it devices. We use GoGuardian and Lightspeed content filtering on all of our student devices both on campus and at home.

The technology also increases access to digital curriculum, in place of traditional print textbooks and classroom equipment. The opportunity to use 1:1 devices gives students access to anywhere, anytime learning.
