January 25, 2011 - The Sudbury Catholic District School recognizes the importance of technology infused curriculum and is making efforts to introduce students as young as Junior Kindergarten to this technology. This past month, students in some of the Sudbury Catholic Kindergarten classes have been working on developing their literacy and numeracy skills with a pilot project involving iPod Touches. The four year olds are very excited to recognize letters and numbers as they practise phonics and number recognition on the iPod touch screens. The classroom teachers have said that the students are excited to share their success with staff and their classmates. Director of Education for the Sudbury Catholic District School Board Catherine McCullough feels that the use of ipods in the kindergarten classes allows these young students to feel comfortable with technology at an early age, and becomes a really positive learning tool to support student success right at the beginning of the students' education. "Through the use of the ipods, our kindergarten students are given a really positive opportunity to explore technology," McCullough said. "This pilot project is one of many that really speaks to the focus on 21'st century learning environments at all of our Sudbury Catholic Schools."
