Our students are born digital. We encourage their first contact with technology to enhance their learning. Students in Nursery to Preschool I use iPads once a week to strengthen the lessons learned during the month. Teachers evaluate the best available apps according to the month’s topics.
Preschool II and Preprimary grades focus on developing the basic technology skills needed to master the apps our students will use in future grades. Learning concentrates on skills, rather than on specific programs. Additionally, technology supports and reinforces the core curriculum.
The use of Technology at San Roberto
From Consumers to Creators
Our focus is to raise responsible digital citizens who master the newest technology to create unthinkable content. Students in lower elementary associate technology as part of their core curriculum. They start to create content that will have a significant impact on their learning.
Students learn the basic skills that will help them become responsible digital citizens.
Creativity Collaboration, and Digital Citizenship
By grade 4, students transition from basic to advanced technology users. When they reach grade 6, they fully understand the integration of technology in their core subjects.
Creativity and problem-solving skills help them choose the best tools available to produce: videos, podcasts, posters, presentations, etc.
In these years, digital citizenship takes on a central role. Students identify and describe the nine elements of Digital Citizenship and are able to use technology in a safe, ethical, and responsible way.
By grade 6, students fully grasp the concept of online collaboration, they communicate and cooperate responsibly with students around the world.
