As part of San Antonio Christian school’s 21st century educational program, students in Grades 7-11 are required to have devices that support our curriculum. SACS requires students to bring a device to school. Recommended tablets that allow the use of a digital pen and run Microsoft Windows can be found in Technology Device Requirements and Registration Guide.
Digital media and technology are evolving at a dizzying pace, both unlocking extraordinary opportunities and posing real risks for young people. Students are using the immense power of the Internet and mobile technology to explore, connect, create, and learn in ways never before imagined, both in and out of the classroom. However, issues that emerge from this 24/7 “connected culture” are surfacing both in schools and at home
San Antonio Christian School believes digital-literacy and citizenship skills have become essential for students in the 21st century, especially in schools like ours that are using technology to transform learning. That’s why we are committed to teaching our students how to think critically, behave safely, and participate responsibly. In addition to helping students become adept at using technology for information gathering and problem-solving, our teachers aim to instill an understanding of what it means to be a good digital citizen. Today, one of the many facets of building character is helping students understand how to be safe, honest, and kind online and when using digital technology.
San Antonio Christian School is committed to empowering our constituency with information about the Internet and the possible dangers to children online. To ensure a safe and positive experience for children we offer some links with information that will hopefully empower students, teachers, parents, to make the Internet a safer place.
