Every other day, it seems some new gadget hits the market promising to solve every problem that ever existed. While we all know the hype usually far exceeds reality, some of the new technologies may hold promise for home schooling families. Over the past year, Seton has explored a few of these new technologies that may be of interest to you and your family.
One item of particular note is we have transitioned two of our publications to electronic format using Kindle. We have been pleased with the results and will proceed with making a few more titles available in the coming months.
We are also looking at new methods to communicate with our families and students. We have started Facebook pages for the school and the bookstore. If you are on Facebook, we have a link on our homepage to “friend” us. You can also expect to see a redesign of our main website with improved navigation and quick links to important and commonly used areas of our website. Also, if you have high school students, be sure to look for our latest quarterly newsletter, The Bayley Bulletin, which has an online version in development. You can find links for the latest edition through our admissions page of the Seton website.
For currently enrolled families you may notice a few new items in your lesson plans and on MySeton. New videos and audio lectures are being produced regularly and posted on MySeton for many subjects and grade levels. Click on the video lecture icons through your student’s MySeton account and enjoy.
We would love to hear from you. Please feel free to share your experiences with anything that we have implemented recently or if there are technologies that you use and like that you think may be beneficial to other home schooling families, share it on Facebook or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
