January 22, 2016 - There was a line up to get into the building at 4:30 on Thursday, January 14 as students at St. Francis Catholic Elementary School eagerly led their parents into the gymnasium to show them all the ways that they use technology in their classrooms.

Approximately 180 people attended the Technology Now night, which was planned by the St. Francis Catholic School Council with support from a government Parents Reaching Out grant. The goal of the event was to show parents how technology is used to support student learning. There were 10 tables set up around the gymnasium where students could show their parents how much they knew about iPad apps like Book Creator, Music Tutor, Explain Everything and Minecraft as well as more subject specific apps that support math, fine motor skills and literacy. Primary Special Education teacher Meghan Dopson also had a Smartboard demonstration in her classroom.

Catholic School Council Chair Kimberley Swain-Bellmore was impressed with the evening, “The children enjoyed showing their parents and siblings some of the things they do in their classrooms, and having a chance to see some of the apps they will be using in years to come,” she said.
