Technology


Saint Teresa of Avila School is committed to using technology to help students become better learners in the 21st Century. We believe that computer skills are important to the development of a well-rounded student. Students learn that technology allows them to expand their knowledge.

 

Students from Kindergarten to Eighth Grade are given the opportunity to develop or improve their computer skills with a dedicated computer class once a week. The computer curriculum consists of coding (programming) and keyboarding, as well as lessons using word processing, spreadsheet, and presentation software.

Our teachers incorporate technology within their teaching assignments and utilize on-line sites linked to lessons in textbooks.  The Diocese of Pittsburgh provides Option C (student learning and management system) which enables mobile access for parents to view their child’s grades.

Saint Teresa of Avila School has available for use:

  • Wireless internet access
  • 24 laptop Computer lab
  • 30 iPad mobile cart
  • 30 ChromeBook mobile lab
  • 13 classroom SmartBoards
  • Dedicated set of 24 laptops in both Grade 7 & 8 classrooms
  • Oscar AIU (Allegheny Intermediate Unit) – web-based collection of educational videos, audio files, and images

Our goal at Saint Teresa of Avila School is to provide technology education so students become confident users and develop creativity and problem-solving skills.
