Lake County's First 1:1 Program
Carmel Catholic is committed to providing our students with the technology resources that will both bolster their education here at Carmel as well as prepare them for the ever-changing world. One of the cornerstones of our use of technology is our 1:1 program. Carmel Catholic is proud to have been at the forefront of innovative instructional technology with our 1:1 program. Beginning in the fall of 2012, each student at Carmel Catholic was issued a tablet to support their learning needs. As we move into the second generation of our program, each student is given a Lenovo Yoga Chromebook. These devices help support our teachers’ and students’ implementation of best practices inside and outside of the classroom.
We also understand that best practices demand a wider array of resources than one device. Our students have access to Mac labs with Adobe Creative Suite, a fully-equipped broadcast studio, large format printing capabilities, cutting edge science computer resources and a myriad of other opportunities to grow as learners.
Google for Education: Featured Case Study
Carmel Catholic was recently recognized in a case study by Google for our outstanding use of Google Apps for Education and Google products. A solution built for learning and designed for the classroom that includes easy-to- manage a ordable devices like Chromebooks and tablets, a “mission control” for class through Google Classroom, a powerful suite of productivity tools with Google Apps for Education, and new ways to engage students like Google Expeditions. Together these tools help teachers save time, increase collaboration, and inspire curiosity while students discover and learn together on any device, from anywhere.
