Innovation in the classroom
Former Superior General of the Society of Jesus, Fr. Pedro Arrupe, stated “If our schools are to perform as they should, they will live in a continual tension between the old and the new, the comfortable past and the uneasy present.”
It is in this same spirit that we are moving toward a 1:1 technology environment at Blakefield. At the beginning of the 2017-18 academic year, we will equip all freshmen, sophomores and juniors with a Microsoft Surface Pro. This same device was piloted during the 2015-16 academic year, and will be in use by all faculty starting in the Fall of 2016.
