Seton Hill University has been recognized as an Apple Distinguished School for 2017–19 for its efforts to integrate mobile technology throughout the campus.

Apple reserves the designation for programs that are “recognized centers of educational excellence and leadership,” the university said in a release.

This is the fifth time Apple has recognized Seton Hill since the Catholic university in Greensburg created its Mobile Learning @ the Hill program in 2010.

“Over the past seven years, Seton Hill has provided the right technology tools that students need to fully engage in the digital world, and our faculty have developed pedagogy that encourages using those tools in new and exciting ways,” said Seton Hill President Mary C. Finger.

“The use of mobile technology at Seton Hill enables the university community to explore new ways to use technology to enrich and expand the teaching and learning experience for all learners,” said Mary Spataro, director of the Innovative Teaching and Learning Center at Seton Hill. “Faculty use mobile technology to enlighten and illuminate their classroom lessons and engage students in learning in compelling ways.”

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
