Technology in the Classroom

A hallmark of the Jesuit approach to education is that it is responsive to the time and context in which it is conveyed. Recognizing that our students live in a world filled with ever-evolving technological resources, we seek to utilize these tools to augment our educational programs and to teach our students about their responsible use.

Technology in the Classroom

To accomplish these goals, devices such as the iPad offer our students many advantages:
  • Access via our wireless network to the Internet – an invention so profound that we are entering a new age of learning;
  • Enrichment of the curriculum through the use of digital resources;
  • Ability to differentiate instruction and increase student engagement in a variety of situations;
  • Access to mobile computing power for engaging in the type of high-quality, data-intensive work our society demands;
  • Access to social media so that students are creators of, and not just consumers of, the intellectual conversations of our age;
  • Access to local storage of online books, databases, textbooks and multimedia files so they can carry their studies with them in a variety of engaging formats;
  • A personalized computing device that ensures equitable access as well as options for personal customization, integration and responsibility.

Technology Standards

As the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) states, the six core technology standards that will best prepare students for the world into which they will enter are:
  • Creativity and Innovation
  • Communication and Collaboration
  • Research and Information Fluency
  • Critical Thinking, Problem Solving and Decision Making
  • Digital Citizenship
  • Technology Operations and Concepts

Responsible Use of Technology

List of 1 items.

  • Digital Citizenship

    Digital citizenship consists of self-monitored behaviors, attitudes and actions that positively shape and impact digital content and communities. These habits include everything from proper online etiquette to the appropriate use of technology to maintaining privacy in the digital world. As members of the Regis Jesuit High School community, students are expected to consistently demonstrate these behaviors and values consistently on and off campus. The expectations listed below represent the fundamentals necessary for individuals to maintain good standing in the digital community. While technology is constantly in a state of change, the standards governing proper behavior do not vary; therefore, the administration retains the right to make the final determination concerning all behavioral issues related to technology.

  • Access

    Students are granted access to multiple computer systems and websites on campus in order to encourage the use of technology in support of educational goals and/or research. Anyone who uses computers (including laptops, iPads, phones or other mobile devices) or computer services on campus must understand and comply with school policies and regulations. While digital commerce is an important part of our digital society, school computers may never be used for commercial purposes to include offering, providing or purchasing goods or services for personal use. The use of any computer, mobile device, network, wireless and internet service on the Regis Jesuit High School campus is a privilege which may be restricted or revoked if not used responsibly.
  • Communication

    Mediums of communication, such as text messaging, social networking and instant messaging, have expanded dramatically over the past decade. Students are encouraged to use these forums responsibly to enhance their academic experience with faculty and other students. When using these systems, especially the school email system, students must meet the expectations established in the Student Handbook. Misuse of any of these systems may result in the loss of technology privileges and students in violation will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including expulsion.
  • Creative Credit and Copyright

    Students have the right to protect their own creative works and also the responsibility to use other people’s creative works in a fair and legal manner. Academic integrity is at the core of this school’s values so failure to appropriately cite ideas or work other than your own will result in adverse academic and behavioral action. 
  • Digital Identity

    Nearly everything an individual posts, writes and accesses on the Internet is saved and establishes an identity within the digital community. Much like a personal reputation, this online identity communicates many characteristics which may negatively affect your personal, professional and educational careers. As a representative of Regis Jesuit High School, students must be diligent in maintaining a positive online identity knowing that actions contrary to the rules and policies of the school are subject to disciplinary action.
  • Ethics and Morality

    Much like the morals, ethics and values which influence our conduct within society, students must use these same standards when participating in the digital community. Issues such as digital harassment (also called “cyberbullying”), music sharing or “pirating,” pornography and gambling have greatly increased of the past few years so students must be aware of these and other ethical dilemmas encompassing our daily lives. Ultimately, students are expected to maintain the highest standards of conduct and decorum regardless of the student in class, at home or online. If a conflict arises concerning the interpretation of the ethics of digital use, the administration reserves the right to make a final determination.
  • Privacy and Security

    Students have a right to privacy and to maintain the security of personal information in the digital community. This process begins by individuals controlling what personal information they share through the local network and the Internet. Students must also be responsible for what information they share about others and need to request permission before posting any information about someone else. In order to help preserve this right, neither still photography nor video capturing is allowed on campus unless directed by a member of a faculty member to meet an educational goal or approved by an authorized member of the administration, faculty or staff. Both behavioral and legal action may be taken against individuals not respecting these rights.
  • Rights and Responsibilities

    Involvement in the digital community comes with rights and responsibilities. Students have the right to seek, receive and impart information and ideas but also take the responsibility to do so in a manner that is consistent with any class rule, school policy, state or federal regulation or expectation set in this contract. Students are asked to report any misuse of the school systems to the appropriate member of the administration, faculty or staff. These misuses may come in many forms, but are commonly viewed as any message(s) sent or received that indicates or suggests pornography, unethical or illegal solicitation, racism, sexism, inappropriate language and other issues described below. Inability to adhere to these expectations will result in loss of technology privileges and students in violation will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including expulsion.
