As research indicates, if you give students powerful tools, you equip them with the means to excel, and excellence is a hallmark of an Oakland Catholic education. The impact of integrating this level of technology into our curriculum has been tremendous and overwhelmingly positive.
By furnishing each student with a MacBook Air, we have increased student engagement, augmented the development of essential technological skills, and further enhanced the Oakland Catholic learning experience. We are confident that Mission Forward will continue to transform the learning process, providing our students with the technological and collaborative skills necessary to become the next generation of leaders.
Partnering with Apple allowed us to provide our instructors with intense professional training so that skill development occurs across the curriculum and is integrated seamlessly into the learning process.
