St. Kate’s is now offering a Master of Arts in Education: Technology Integration. This new program is featured in this month’s SCAN.
“St. Kate’s new graduate-level program — which plans to offer the choice of a Master of Arts (M.A.) or a certificate — equips teachers with digital skills and an understanding of how to hold the attention of a generation weaned on gadgets. Class topics include computational thinking and computer coding, best practices in 1:1 (one-to- one, a setting in which each student has her or his own digital device) and ethics in the digital age.”
Congratulations to all of our graduates from Spring 2014. You can learn from our students’ Action Research projects by reading their reports featured in the St. Kate Database Sophia, or linked here!

The Sister Ann Harvey Award was created to honor the work of Sister Ann Harvey, CSJ. Sister Ann Harvey came to St. Catherine in 1926. She received her master’s degree in early childhood education from Columbia University. Sister Ann was a professor of education at St. Catherine’s and served as a beloved mentor to countless students. In 1955, Sister Ann traveled to Italy to study the Montessori method with Dr. Maria Montessori. Sister Ann’s expertise in the area of early childhood education was widely known and respected. She worked closely with the Minnesota Department of Education to help the State develop criteria for early childhood licensure.
