Technology Education at Saint Theresa School is achieved through many different avenues. The instructional process is directed by the curriculum set by Diocese of Harrisburg. The curriculum follows the state guidelines and takes into account the diverse technology resources of the different schools within the diocese.

Saint Theresa School technology program encompasses a multidiscipline approach. Integration is stressed by the administration and is being adopted into overall classroom instruction. Your children receive the workings of technology in their weekly Technology Class. The classroom teacher and technology teacher collaborate to create meaningful integration into the classroom curriculum.

Topics included in the Technology Curriculum are: Personal Safety Online, Copyright, Fair Use, Piracy, Plagiarism, Proper citation of sources, Searching and using the Web, Keyboarding (3rd-8th), Word Processing, Spreadsheets and Graphing, Multimedia presentations, Video and Movies. Other topics are covered as presented to the students via Integration.

As the Technology Class instructor and School Technology Specialist it is my goal to teach the skills needed by our 21st Century learners and facilitate technology integration into the individual classrooms.
