The goals of Brophy’s technology program go beyond simply teaching students how to use the latest tools and devices. Students are encouraged to find answers, create solutions, and solve problems. Students learn how to use technology to better engage and explore the world around them, and ultimately, to be able to respond compassionately and effectively to a global society that needs their acumen and leadership.
Brophy has assembled an extensive network infrastructure, a wealth of digital resources for faculty and students, a state-of-the-art technology lab—the Innovation Commons—and a successful one-to-one computing program using Apple iPads and MacBook Air laptops. (Beginning with the Class of 2021, the program transitioned to the MacBook Air as its computing device.)
Brophy’s technology resources include:
Currently, over 600 iPads and 700 MacBook Airs serving our 1:1 program
Wireless network across campus with fiber-backed network infrastructure
An 11,500-square-foot “maker space," the Innovation Commons, that includes a coding lab, 3-D printers, laser cutters, CNC routers, and other equipment
An extensive collection of digital academic databases
