Digital Learning at the Jo
Please read this important email from Ms. Vai about the first two days of the school year!
Josephinum Academy of the Sacred Heart is committed to providing an engaging and relevant educational program that meets the needs of 21st century learners. As a one-to-one computing school, the Jo has been incorporating Digital Learning techniques and tools that support and enhance the classroom experience for almost a decade. Digital Learning allows us to promote and support the integration of technology across our curriculum. When learning suddenly switched to a fully digital model in March 2020, both teachers and students were ready and well prepared.
While we would all prefer to be together in person this school year, to ensure the health and safety of the Jo community, the 2020-2021 school year will begin online. Our dedicated staff and faculty are excited to take advantage of new digital teaching methodologies and best practices that will give Jo students the high quality and personalized learning experience they deserve from wherever they are safely learning. We are more committed than ever to ensuring that Josephinum graduates have the core skills and competencies needed to successfully navigate the digital world, along with a moral compass to guide their ethical use of technology. We look forward to an exciting start to a successful school year!
