Enhancing Technology for Optimal Learning
Niagara Catholic has invested heavily in ensuring that 21st century learners are learning in 21st century settings.
In 2019, we completed our Data Centre relocation, which is a major upgrade for our system and provides enhanced security for our data and student information.
In November, Niagara Catholic’s new website went live. The new site features fresh, larger photos, a more user-friendly interface and is accessible from multiple devices and platforms.
Niagara Catholic supports a robust learning environment that provides students and staff with access to both Board-purchased and Ministry of Education-integrated learning resources and digital tools that support a wide variety of student learning experiences and staff development. Two programs are specifically used - Brightspace Portfolio, which is used to document and share student learning and success in a virtual platform, providing an artifact space for individual learners which will follow students throughout their education, and My Blueprint, a digital tool to support education and career life planning. These tools, used within the classroom environment, support both technology-enabled learning and enhancing global competencies, supported by the Niagara Catholic Digital Learning Team.
