ACS has a long history of harnessing the best new technologies to differentiate the way we deliver a progressive education – that is why IT is integrated into the very heart of our curriculum.
The nature of learning has changed, and we embrace the reality that mobile technology is at the core of a new educational experience. With a 1:1 iPad programme in Grades 3 through 12, we pursue excellence in areas that are relevant to today’s education, and life in general.
Mobile technology empowers our students and teachers with broader access to ‘instant’ learning capabilities, both in and outside of the classroom. IT increases active teacher facilitation, as well as elevating student engagement and participation. The longer-term advantages are as dynamic and as individual as the people who make up our vibrant international community.
Crucially, we believe the greatest benefit of our IT strategy is that it inspires students to new thinking, while celebrating the learning skills we continue to prize most dearly – listening, reading, writing, and numeracy.
