Integrated Technology

Technology at AISV is:

  • Integrated – Teachers and students collaborate to integrate age-appropriate technology within each subject area and across subjects to enhance the curriculum.
  • Individualized – Technology is used as a resource to differentiate instruction to meet the learning needs and interests of each student.
  • Inquiry-based – Technology will be used to foster inquiry, including conducting research, gathering information, producing documents, reports and presentations to make learning meaningful and authentic.
  • Forward Thinking- Teachers and students are committed to continuous learning, using creativity and adaptability to explore applications of technology in their studies and everyday lives.
  • Ethical and Responsible – Students will be aware of how technology affects both local and global environments. In addition, students will learn to be informed and accountable in their use of technology.

Teachers use technology to enhance students’ learning. Specialist teachers push-in to classrooms to provide support for teachers and differentiation to students as needed. Middle School integrates Digital Citizenship throughout the curriculum and units within the Advisory program. Digital citizenship is promoted throughout the curriculum. The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program is required for all Middle School students. By using technology effectively in the classroom, we aim to make students’ learning even more successful and productive. Therefore, all Middle School students are required to bring a fully charged laptop each day to school. The school has a number of loaner laptops if students are unable to bring one from home.
