We're proud of our 1:1 device access for students at CATCH as it has been transformational as to how teachers teach and students learn each and every day. A digital device in the hands of all students engages them in highly interactive, transformational learning as students need to be producers and evaluators of knowledge in the 21st century, not just consumers. In this digital age, analyzing information is a critical skill. That's why, in CATCH's 1:1 initiative, students regularly have the opportunity to locate, evaluate, and interpret information, as well as collaborate with others to engage in authentic, real-world tasks.
In preparing students to succeed in the future workforce, schools must ensure that students are digitally literate inventive thinkers, successful problem-solvers, creative decision makers, and clear and effective collaborators. Devices enable this in ways students can build skill and expertise upon.
