Cor Jesu Laptop Program
One of Cor Jesu's many educational goals is to utilize technology in an effective and meaningful way that will support the students' varied learning styles. In order to achieve that goal, Cor Jesu has implemented the Laptop Program, which requires each freshman to lease a Lenovo ThinkPad Notebook throughout her four years at Cor Jesu for educational and personal use.
Coupled with the interactive SMARTBoard technology that is available in all our classrooms, the laptops enhance the students' education in myriad ways. For instance, the laptop technology is integrated into the larger curriculum framework to help the students implement concepts, research various topics and share their understanding of the material. As our classrooms continue to become more active with interactive projects, students continually are challenged to transform data into knowledge and knowledge into action - infusing all the subjects with technology. To help with that process, our faculty members integrate the computer technology into their lessons and activities. They continuously receive training on the laptops to enhance learning for their students.
In addition, Cor Jesu offers an online grading program, which may be accessed through the laptops, to help our faculty communicate the academic achievements and needs of the students to parents.
