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 world beyond high school. One of the cornerstones of our use of technology is our 1:1 program. We are proud to have been at the forefront of innovative instructional technology beginning in the fall of 2012 when we issued each student a tablet to support his or her learning needs.
For the second generation of our program, we gave each student a Lenovo Yoga 11e Chromebook. This year, Carmel requires students to purchase a Chromebook from two options offered on the student portal, the Lenovo 100e or the Lenovo 300e. The IT staff prepares these Chromebooks for distribution, and they remain on our network for the duration of a student's time at Carmel.
These devices, along with the computer labs throughout the building that offer experiences using different platforms and software, help support our teachers’ and students’ implementation of best practices inside and outside of the classroom. 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.
Students can take the Technology Student Internship class as a Business Department elective. These students serve as the primary providers of technical support for the school.
