WILMINGTON – Ursuline Academy has been recognized as a 2014 Superstars in Education award winner for technology by the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce and the Partnership Inc. The school was cited for its one-to-one laptop program and is the only private school to receive the designation in the technology category.
Superstars in Education is a statewide program that “recognizes Delaware educators who have implemented and sustained best teaching practices and unique educational programs that have contributed to improved student skill development and increased academic achievement,” according to Ursuline.
The one-to-one laptop program was established in 1998 for middle and upper school students in grades seven through 12. Ursuline was the first wireless school in Delaware and the first to offer an individualized laptop program.
Now, according to the school, students and faculty integrate technology into every aspect of learning.
“Without our staff and faculty’s dedication to and enthusiasm for implementing and growing the laptop program and technology-based curriculum, none of this would have been possible,” said Cathie Field Lloyd, Ursuline’s president.
The Superstars in Education recognition ceremony will be held Monday, May 5, at 5:45 p.m. at the Wilmington Sheraton South Hotel in New Castle.
