The use of technology to foster creativity, problem solving, communication, and critical thinking has been a cornerstone of the Saint Ursula academic program for over a decade. At Saint Ursula, each student uses a tablet PC, equipped with a touch screen and writing stylus, as a primary tool in her classes. With access to class materials, textbooks and other resources online, a student’s tablet PC is a gateway to her understanding content, communicating ideas and exploring new knowledge.
In addition to the tablet PC, students utilize graphing calculators, a language lab, a video production lab, and 3-D printers. The use of these tools is incorporated in core and elective classes.
Students in design classes create digital media using Apple computers that run specific programs for digital design.
