Responsible Technology Use for All Enrolled

At Seton, we believe that teaching children the proper use of technology is essential in today's digital age for several reasons:


Digital Literacy: Technology literacy is a crucial skill in the 21st century. Teaching children how to use technology equips effectively and responsibly them with the knowledge and skills needed to navigate the digital world confidently.

Access to Information and Resources: At Seton, technology provides children with access to a vast array of information and educational resources. Teaching them how to use technology responsibly enables them to harness its power for learning, research, and personal development.

Communication and Collaboration: Technology facilitates communication and collaboration with others, regardless of geographical location. Teaching children how to communicate respectfully and collaborate effectively online prepares them for success in a connected global society.

Creativity and Innovation: Technology offers endless opportunities for creativity and innovation. Teaching children how to use digital tools for creative expression, such as coding, graphic design, or multimedia production, fosters their imagination and problem-solving skills.

Critical Thinking and Digital Citizenship: Teaching children to critically evaluate online information and media helps them become discerning consumers and responsible digital citizens. They learn to distinguish between reliable sources and misinformation, navigate online risks, and protect their privacy and security.

Preparation for the Future Workforce: In an increasingly digitalized economy, proficiency in technology is an asset in the workforce. Teaching children how to use technology effectively prepares them for future careers that may require digital skills, adaptability, and technological fluency.

Balance and Well-being: Teaching children about responsible technology use includes promoting balance and well-being in their digital lives. They learn the importance of setting boundaries, managing screen time, and prioritizing offline activities such as physical exercise, social interactions, and creative pursuits.

Empowerment and Agency: Technology empowers children to take control of their learning, creativity, and self-expression. Teaching them how to harness technology to pursue their interests, advocate for causes they care about, and effect positive change in their communities cultivates a sense of agency and empowerment.

Inclusion and Accessibility: Technology has the potential to break down barriers to education and participation for children with disabilities or special needs. Teaching children about inclusive design principles and accessible technology promotes empathy, inclusion, and equal opportunities for all.

Ethical Considerations and Digital Footprint: Teaching children about ethical behavior online, including cyberbullying, plagiarism, and copyright infringement, helps them understand the consequences of their actions and cultivate empathy and respect for others. They also learn about the permanence of their digital footprint and the importance of responsible online behavior.

At Seton School, teaching our students, starting in our technology classes with our kindergarten students, the proper use of technology is essential for preparing them to thrive in a digital world while promoting responsible citizenship, critical thinking, creativity, and well-being.

Thanks to grant funds and generous donations from Seton supporters our students have been equipped with their own personal technology devices and all have been heavily instructed on how to care for the technology device and how to use it responsibly.

Technology classes are taught weekly throughout the entire academic year to all kindergarten through eighth-grade students at Seton Catholic School.
