Technology at Gesu Catholic School maximizes both teaching and learning for every member of the school community. Students and teachers have access to hardware and software that enhances student learning at all grade levels. Our main goal for technology integration at Gesu is to support our students in becoming collaborative learners, as well as educating them to have a deep understanding of different technology resources and skills.
Our campus’ wireless network was recently updated in June 2019, which enables our students to have a mobile learning environment. There is a 1:1 tablet program for students in Grades 2-8. The school also provides tech resources in Preschool, Kindergarten and Grade 1 that includes iPads carts at each level. Each classroom in the building is also equipped with the latest whiteboard technology, which enables an interactive approach to learning and teaching.
The new Gesu Learning Commons, dedicated in Fall 2019, has significantly extended the STREAM Center. Located on the 2nd floor of the school, the Learning Commons area encompasses the school library, the Broadcast Studio, additional technology and space for student learning and STREAM related projects. The Broadcast Studio hosts our student- produced morning broadcast with the latest news and events.
Technology integration is prevalent throughout many of our programs at Gesu including the STREAM Program, Programming & Robotics, Minecraft Club, Tech Camp, and our comprehensive technology curriculum in our lower and middle school classes. Internet safety and digital citizenship are also covered in age-appropriate ways at every grade level. It is important that our students know how to use technology wisely and effectively as new applications emerge.
