The role that technology plays in our lives is increasing daily in all areas of our lives. At ISA, we recognise this and are preparing our students to live, learn and work in an increasingly technologically complex world.
We want to ensure that our classroom-based technologies stimulate a student’s creativity, analytical abilities and instil confidence in their self-expression and communication.
Our goal is to improve learning and we believe that we can do so by providing students with access to the information and tools where and when they need it. We do this by supporting traditional classwork with various technological tools – such as iPads for Lower School students and our one-to-one laptop programme for Upper School students.
Students learn to use educational apps, how to create, share and edit documents and design and produce their own multimedia. Our teachers use technology to supplement their lessons and to help students dive deeper into class assignments and access information to help them better understand core concepts.
Technology tools today are personal and powerful. They allow students to learn anytime, anywhere and ISA students do so on a daily basis. Students at ISA are adept at researching, writing, communicating and analysing through a variety of mediums including text, audio and video.
Taking A Green Approach
One of the goals of the ISA Educational Technology department is to reduce the negative impact that technology can have on our planet, our health and our wellbeing.
ISA’s commitment to reducing our environmental impact extends to our technology planning. We look at our footprint so that we can set improvement targets and measure our impact in areas such as reducing paper consumption and the amount of ink we use and ensuring that our e-waste is disposed of in a responsible manner.
