A well-developed technology program to complement the curriculum is essential in developing an enhanced college preparatory experience for our students. In the 2015-16 school year, Bishop DuBourg High School introduced a school wide One-to-One Tablet Initiative. Each Bishop DuBourg student is equipped with a Microsoft Surface tablet that offers students the ability to utilize the tablet as a laptop or touch screen device. When considering our technology choices for one-to-one, we selected an affordable tablet that is compatible with the Microsoft technology already used in most homes.
The purpose of the One-to-One Tablet Initiative is to provide our students the opportunity to integrate technology into all aspects of the educational experience. Our goal is to fully engage the students in the learning process and extend their classroom experiences beyond pages of books and walls of the school building. Utilizing these tablets on a regular basis allows students to understand the valuable role of technology in their high school education and in their future educational endeavors.
