Magazine honors Moreau Catholic for innovation

For the second year in a row, a school in the Diocese of Oakland has received an Innovations in Education recognition from Today's Catholic Teacher magazine.

Moreau Catholic High School in Hayward was honored in the category of An Innovative Project in Curriculum and Education.

In what the magazine headlined as "Learning Around the Clock," it notes that the bell at the end of the day does not signify the end of learning. Using latest technology, it said, teachers are reaching students at all hours of the day.

One English teacher, for example, uses Goggle Docs with her students when they are doing work requiring multiple drafts. Teachers and students can chat about a document from their own computers, allowing timely and effective feedback.

In some classes, students are experiencing flipped classrooms, the magazine said. Students listen to teachers' pre-recorded lectures at home. During class time the next day they put their newfound knowledge to work.

Each month the school's website features a video called "Teacher Features," on which a teacher is shown demonstrating how Moreau Catholic teachers are transforming their curriculum and instruction with new technologies.

Catholic schools from throughout the country entered the awards competition, which is divided into five categories.

The judging panel was chaired by Sister Angela Ann Zukowski of the University of Dayton. The award from the magazine will be presented during the National Catholic Education Association conference in Pittsburgh later this month.

Last year, St. Edward School in Newark received the Innovation in Total Community Involvement award for its Student Outreach Program, in which students in each class in the K-8 school are asked to complete community service hours.
