Introduction

Regis Jesuit High School is dedicated to helping form young women and men who are open to growth, intellectually competent, religious, loving and committed to doing justice. To accomplish these goals, devices such as the iPad offer our students many advantages:

  • Access via our wireless network to the Internet – an invention so profound that we are entering a new age of learning;
  • Enrichment of the curriculum through the use of digital resources;
  • Ability to differentiate instruction and increase student engagement in a variety of situations;
  • Access to mobile computing power for engaging in the type of high-quality, data-intensive work our society demands;
  • Access to social media so that students are creators of, and not just consumers of, the intellectual conversations of our age;
  • Access to local storage of online books, databases, textbooks and multimedia files so they can carry their studies with them in a variety of engaging formats;
  • A personalized computing device that ensures equitable access as well as options for personal customization, integration and responsibility.

As the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) states, the six core technology standards that will best prepare students for the world into which they will enter are:

  • Creativity and Innovation
  • Communication and Collaboration
  • Research and Information Fluency
  • Critical thinking, Problem Solving and Decision Making
  • Digital Citizenship
  • Technology Operations and Concepts
