Early Literacy

At Our Lady of Refuge Catholic School in Long Beach, we understand that using technology effectively and responsibly is crucial to success as a digital citizen in a global society.

Since 1989, Our Lady of Refuge has been a leader in technology integration, incorporating technology into the learning environments of even our youngest learners. Students in our early literacy Writing Starz Lab experience a language rich, technology supported, student centered learning environment.

Education & Technology

Mr. Doyle has been at Our lady of Refuge this year and works diligently to ensure that students are provided with the technology that best meets their curricular demands. Whether the tool is a desktop computer, an iPad tablet or a digital recording, students learn to select the best tool for the job at hand.

One of the real benefits of utilizing technology in the Writing Starz Lab is that it allows students to learn and advance at their own rate. Students can go to the same centers with their classmates, but what they are learning at each center is individualized. All students are successful at their own pace and in their own time, which fosters confidence and reinforces the joy of learning.

A Foundation of Technological Learning

Our TK through 2nd grade students build a strong foundation in technology in the Writing Starz Lab, preparing them for Internet research, PowerPoint presentations, and graphing and analyzing data in spreadsheets beginning in 3rd grade.
