The world around us is continually changing and requires citizens to be able to function in a world that calls upon 21st Century Skills such as:

We are committed to preparing students to be literate and responsible citizens in today’s world. The St. Michael the Archangel School 1:1 iPad initiative E3 – Enhance, Excite, Engage will help prepare students to be literate and responsible citizens in a 21st century world. The use of iPads will Enhance academic excellence, Excite 21st century learners and Engage students in a digital environment. We are providing students with instant access to information all over the world and preparing them to be effective and responsible users of technology. By teaching students to think critically, collaborate and be creative we are developing skills needed to be 21st century learners and citizens.
This exciting school-wide initiative is a tremendous educational opportunity and a privilege that comes with much responsibility. We believe that our students are able to handle this incredible responsibility with appropriate guidance from both teachers and parents. Much care will be taken to properly instruct students about how to use the device and to communicate our expectations governing it. All students will receive training on how to safely and effectively use the device before the iPads are issued.
