St. Clement focused on 'Technology for learning'
St. Clement Catholic School is focused on exposing its students to the use of "Technology for Learning."
That concept means instruction is less focused on the devices used (the school uses both iPads for Grades Kindergarten through Fifth Grade and Windows tablets, a one-to-one device program, for its Junior High) and more on how to use that technology, or any technology, to learn, enhance learning in the classrooms, complete projects, communicate with each other and with teachers, and how to convey what is learned to a larger audience.
St. Clement students are exposed not only to what apps to use, but also to the overall reasoning why using technology in a specific manner will help them accomplish their goals and prepare them for the next level and the world, in general.
The New Technology Club, led by Instructional Technology Coordinator, Ron Asuncion, takes a more focused look at the usage of the school's technology. Students are learning to write their own programs for tablets, websites and iPads. They focus on using technology in advanced ways like music and video editing and game modifications and they are beginning to explore basic robotics. St. Clement students will also spend time playing with and reviewing the latest technology devices on the market such as the newest smartphones, tablets and computer accessories. And finally, students will also work toward learning how to build their own computers.
St. Clement School is at 790 Calhoun St., Hayward, 510-538-5885 and www.sclementschool.org.
