Educational Technology

As a Microsoft Showcase School, Westminster is part of a global community of institutions engaged in innovative change to improve teaching and learning.

Westminster is a one-to-one school for students from grade 3 through grade 12. Using Microsoft tools allows our students to excel with technology by giving them the freedom to embrace it in a developmentally, age-appropriate manner. 
“Technology pushes education forward and makes everything easier,” explained Omar Valerio, Westminster's CIO. “The students are more engaged, more enthusiastic. They’re excited to come to school, participate and learn new things. Technology facilitates opportunities for them.”

Every student has a Surface Pro and an Office 365 account, enabling them to work more efficiently and fostering a collaborative learning culture. The school also offers a variety of Information Technology certifications, as well as a wide range of programs, from engineering to robotics. To grant more opportunities in this space, students have the chance to participate in the technology track and study subjects such as Aerospace Engineering and Coding.

Technology also enhances the process for teachers, allowing them to save time and be more well-organized. Through the Microsoft OneNote Class Notebook, teachers create a personal workspace for every student, content library for handouts and a collaboration space for lessons and creative activities. Moreover, teachers can provide direct feedback by writing in each student’s private notebook, encouraging students to work together as the teacher provides real-time coaching.
