Three Year Technology Plan

Saint John’s Academy is embarking on a three-year technology plan as required by the Archdiocese of Newark. This is an exciting opportunity for SJA to expand our use of technology in order to meet the needs of all our learners. Technology plays a vital role in reaching the educational goals of our students. Technology will continue to be a resource, it will not define the existing, rich curriculum. Technology is already evident at SJA, and will continue to be part of meaningful, purposeful teaching and learning models. Our technology plan will be based on the guidelines set by the diocese and based on the standards created by the International Society for Technology Education (ISTE).  The six standards of ISTE that we will improve upon at SJA are:

  1. Creativity and Innovation (ISTE 1)

  2. Communication and Collaboration (ISTE 2)

  3. Research and Informational Literacy (ISTE 3)

  4. Critical Thinking and Problem Solving (ISTE 4)

  5. Digital Citizenship (ISTE 5)

  6. Computer and Software Skills (ISTE 6)
