Saint Gertrude High School approaches technology integration with our school mission as the driving force. Developing critical thinking and creative expression while maintaining a high moral character, is the foundation to all projects in the technology program. Our students gain firsthand knowledge of how technology can be used to help them solve problems, think deeper and demonstrate creativity. By the time they graduate, the girls have learned to apply technology to all aspects of their academic life.
The Technology Department works closely with all the teachers and students to support their use of technology within different classes. Below are just a few examples of how we have integrated technology into the different departments.
