St. Luke’s technology philosophy


St. Luke’s creates contextually relevant learning experiences for students through the usage of
well-appointed educational technology and innovative instructional approaches. Technology is viewed not as an isolated addition to our curriculum but rather as one of a number of tools used to support student learning. It enriches the experience of St. Luke’s students while facilitating opportunities to act as designers, producers, and creators.

Through our many digital initiatives, St. Luke’s responsibly exposes students to ethical technology usage and prepares them to navigate the complex, information-rich landscape we inhabit.  Students are educated about digital citizenship, information literacy, and their role in a participatory culture.

Early Childhood and Early Elementary Technology

Technology is utilized in the Lower School in an effort to reach all learners through differentiated instruction and to build a foundation for developing digital literacy.  The following innovative learning tools enable students to construct knowledge through active engagement with peers as well as with the teacher:

  • SMART Tables
  • SMART Boards
  • NEO 2™ wireless word processors
  • iPad carts
  • Mac laptop carts
  • document cameras

     

Intermediate and Middle Level Technology

It is our goal that St. Luke’s students learn to use technology with the same ease as a pencil, notebook, or whiteboard.  With that in mind, St. Luke’s became the first school in San Antonio to institute a 1-to-1 laptop program in our middle school.  Each student in grades five through eight is equipped with an 11-inch MacBook Air.  The 1-to-1 program grants middle school learners opportunities to showcase expertise with interactive presentation tools; collaborate with peers through cloud-based computing; express voice and choice through monitored classroom usage of social media tools; and explore new educational modalities through flipped classroom models.

Other technological tools used in the intermediate and middle levels include:

  • SMART Boards
  • Apple TVs
  • iPad carts
  • MacBook carts
  • 3-D printer
  • document cameras
