Technology on Campus
Beginning in grade 6 and continuing through grade 12, all students are provided an Apple laptop with a customized package of software. Teachers then incorporate the use of laptops into their curriculum through diverse, computer-based activities. Access to and support for digital information, tools, devices and rich learning opportunities are fully integrated throughout the educational environment. Therefore, any technology fees are added after tuition.
Students use the laptops throughout the day and across campus, taking advantage of the wireless environment. As laptops are integral to the curriculum, students take the computers home as extensions of the learning experience.
Damien Memorial provides a secure and robust technology infrastructure on campus, including age-appropriate Internet filtering; and guidance regarding Internet safety and online etiquette. Technical assistance is readily available to students from their teachers or the Damien Help Desk.
