St. Francis School provides students and staff access to the latest technology that enhances teaching and learning. We use technology to nurture the ministry of Catholic Education and to promote educational excellence by facilitating resource sharing, innovation, collaboration, and communication.
Students and Staff
All classrooms are now directly connected to our LAN. All computers in the school have access to the Internet. This allows teachers and students to access the Renaissance Learning Programs (Accelerated Reader, Accelerated Math, STAR Reading, STAR Math), the Michigan e-Library’s online databases, as well as an unlimited number of online resources. To enhance instruction and enrich curriculum, multimedia projectors are in each classroom. This enables teachers to project PowerPoint presentations, the Internet and digital videos (both DVD and streaming videos from United Streaming).
Teachers and students use technologies such as digital cameras, multi-media projectors, and IPEVO document cameras to deepen the learning experience and supplement the curriculum. Effective and engaging software and online learning resources play an integral part in every curriculum, providing students with the opportunity to develop the skills necessary to succeed as a 21st-century learner and leader.
