We are a 1:1 school
Notre Dame is a 1:1 school, meaning quite frankly we assign one Microsoft Surface Pro or Apple iPad to each student depending on their grade level. We like to think of 1:1 as one teacher to one student – which places the focus on using the technology to facilitate real-time interaction between teacher and student.
Our 1:1 Device Program includes six guiding principles:
- Anytime, Anyplace Learning
- Engagement and Ownership
- Digital Citizenship
- Equity of Access
