ORLANDO – Bishop Moore Catholic High School has received the 2012 Catholic Schools for Tomorrow Award, a national recognition by the publication Today’s Catholic Teacher.
The school was nominated for its Technology Enhanced Active Learning lab. The TEAL concept was developed in the 1990s by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and its purpose is to engage students interactively. The concept prepares students for college and real-world experiences, allows students to take ownership of their learning process and builds teamwork and communication skills.
“At Bishop Moore we balance our Catholic identity and traditions with an innovative educational environment and cutting edge technology,” Principal Tom Doyle said. “We are proud to represent the Diocese of Orlando as we receive this award.”
Each year, Today’s Catholic Teacher picks a dozen schools from around the U.S. that are innovators in Catholic education. Doyle and school president Maureen Kane will receive the school’s award April 12 during the National Catholic Education Association (NCEA) convention in Boston.
