By facilitating the integration of technology into our community, the Saint Maur Technology Department provides vital 21st century learning and teaching tools for use both inside and outside the classroom.
Saint Maur does not limit its students to one device or operating system. We have a multi-faceted technological environment where students are encouraged to learn many techniques on a variety of platforms. As any engineer or computer scientist will tell you, succeeding in their discipline requires a broad knowledge of many different technologies. Therefore, we host a balanced environment of Macs, PCs, and mobile platforms.
While many schools emphasize using software, the Saint Maur Technology Department emphasizes creating it. We aim to meet the high demand for future computer scientists. The instruction of robotics fundamentals at Saint Maur begins at Grade 3 and introductory computer science and graphical programming begins at Grade 6.
The technologists at Saint Maur are more than just teachers – they are also trained and experienced computer scientists, engineers, and network administrators. Their knowledge, diverse experiences, and love of technology are passed on to students through projects, clubs, field trips, and our advanced technology curriculum.
Latest and Greatest
The Technology Department keeps all equipment on a short replacement cycle which ensures that students, faculty, and staff are always using the latest, most advanced hardware available. Software contracts and licenses are also evaluated annually, so that students and faculty are always learning on the most relevant platforms and software.
The Technology Department is committed to ensuring that our students’ balanced and global academic experiences are met with an equally balanced and diversified exposure to technology. While most schools choose to equip and train their students with one device on one operating system, Saint Maur expects students to be exposed to a multitude of the best available technological resources. We realize that technological proficiency in the 21st century is not limited to the proficient use of just one device, but being able to effectively use a variety of the best resources for the task at hand. Therefore, our infrastructure is an integration of the most powerful hardware and software offered by Microsoft, Apple, Google, Dell, Cisco, Lego, National Instruments, and more.
