Technology and technology-empowered students are here to stay. Here at St. Paul School we are taking advantage of the students’ affinity for technology to engage them in learning that is becoming evermore relevant to their futures. Logically, without technology, schools will not be able to prepare students for an increasingly technology-driven world..
Thus technology-empowered learning is a requirement for any education institution to be an effective school. Learning for the 21st Century focuses on six key elements educational elements that rely on technology as tools.
21st Century citizens must know how to think critically, apply knowledge to new situations, analyze information, comprehend new ideas, communicate, collaborate, solve problems, and make decisions.
At St. Paul School we incorporate information and communication technologies into education from the elementary grades up and use experiences that are relevant to students’ lives, connected with the world beyond the classroom, and based on authentic projects.
We go far beyond standardized testing as the sole measure of student learning; balancing traditional tests with performance-based projects and activities, classroom assessments to measure the full range of students’ skills, and using technology-based assessments to deliver immediate feedback.
