Rather than imposing on parents and students a single brand or model of computers, Northbridge International School Cambodia has chosen to embrace the cultural diversity of our community and recognize that technology choices belong to families.
BYOL supports our students engage in a balanced program which offers opportunities for social, physical, emotional, artistic, and intellectual development. Information and Communications Technology is used at NISC when it enhances understanding to develop and apply technology skills in integrated ways in the frameworks of the PYP, MYP, and DP programs of the IBO. It encourages:
- teachers and students to collaborate in the learning process
- opportunities for student choice to encourage students to take responsibility for their learning
- concept-driven and transdisciplinary teaching taking place both inside and outside school
- learning as part of a broader community of learners and beyond the classroom through global connections
- adapting multiple systems or approaches (for example, platform or application) according to the situation and needs of learners
- publishing content for an authentic audience, for example, using social media tools to communicate a message to a wider group of people
iPads are transforming the way we teach and learn. Powerful creative tools, interactive textbooks, and a universe of apps and content make for endless learning possibilities.
Thinking is pretty much invisible. iPads encourage learners to speak, write, or draw their ideas, to deepen their cognition and develop a culture of thinking in classrooms. The school has over 100 school iPads in the Primary School available to students to enthusiastically engage in thinking and learning.
