Technology Brings Our Classrooms Alive!
St. Augustine School offers students endless learning opportunities through the use of innovative, state-of-the-art technology! Students use computers to learn basic keyboarding skills, internet safety/digital citizenship, create Microsoft Word and Power Point documents, conduct Internet research, work on collaborative group projects using Google Docs, write journals, participate in virtual field trips and much more! The purchase of this exciting technology was made possible by the support of The Knott Foundation, and contributions from the Annual Fund and the Race for Education.
St. Augustine's has whiteboard and projectors in nearly all classrooms that allow for interactive lessons! This latest and greatest technology provides exciting, new learning opportunities for students!

Technology courses are essential to every Catholic school curriculum. In fact, technology is required to be integrated throughout each course of study from Mathematics to Religion. The use of technology in the 21st century is integral to preparing students for college and career success. Technology courses in Catholic schools cover a variety of lessons including Research and Information Fluency, Digital Citizenship, Creativity and Innovation, Communication and Collaboration. All of these units are taught and influenced by the lens of Catholic identity and the dignity of all humankind.
In addition to the core technology integrated curriculum, 3D printing has been added as an activity to enhance instruction throughout many of the schools in the Archdiocese of Baltimore.
On May 5, 2015, Archbishop William E. Lori held a press conference to announce an exciting new initiative makes a 3D printer available in every Archdiocesan school. The initiative was made possible due to support from the Embracing Our Mission ~ Shaping Our Future capital campaign, a generous donation by Mr. & Mrs. Joseph Croteau, and our technology and curriculum partners, 3D Systems and STEAMTrax.
3D printing is considered a “game-changer” for schools, as they provide children with unparalleled access to innovative technology used by engineers, astronauts on the International Space Station, and medical professionals and scientists.
St. Augustine School students will have access to this same technology and a curriculum that allows our students to become more ready every day for future discoveries and advances we have yet envisioned.
