Saint Leo the Great Catholic School fully incorporates technology into daily curriculum. Fully integrating technology into the classroom has been the goal for many years. All 5th through 8th grade students are part of a 1:1 MacBook Air Initiative. These students have a MacBook Air that they take back and forth from home to work on their projects from school. Because technology is such a guiding force in the Silicon Valley, the teachers at Saint Leo’s incorporate how to best use technology into their lessons.
The elementary students have access to Macbooks, iPads, and Chromebooks.
Starting in 1st grade, students are assigned a Google Education account that is managed by the IT department at Saint Leo’s. This is the age when students start learning how to use the Google Drive. In 4th grade, the students start learning how to use and manage their email account in addition to their Google Drive.
The school also has a brand new STEM Learning Center. The Center is run by the Technology Teacher and the students have access to 5 Mac Desktops, 6 SMART Interactive Tables, and two MakerBot 3-D Printers. The official blessing of the Learning Center was in September of 2016.
