St. Thomas Aquinas Regional School Technology Class


The Diocese of Arlington's Technology Standards were revamped for the 2015-2016 school year and they encompass:

  • Technology Systems (Use It)
    • Develop foundations in the understanding of technology concepts, systems, and operations.

  • Digital Citizenship (Protect It)
    • Demonstrate an understanding of the history of technology and its impact on society. Practice ethical, legal, and responsible use of technology.

  • Research and Information Management (Find and Organize It)
    • Use digital tools to locate, gather, evaluate, and organize information and data.

  • Learning, Collaboration, and Problem Solving (Solve It)
    • Use a variety of technologies to support and enhance learning, encourage collaboration, increase productivity, and solve problems.

  • Communication and Creativity/Innovation (Create and Communicate It)
    • Use technology for communication, creative thinking, and developing innovative products using various media formats.


The students will be growing and strengthening their technology skills in these areas, as they complete assignments and projects created in support of the Diocesan curriculum in the various content areas.
