|Use of technology in the classroom||
MHIS' dedication to the use of technology in education has its basis in the belief that technology can help us to widen the scope of learning for its students. Whilst many schools now provide technological tools, MHIS focuses its use in promoting inquiry and offering a gateway to multiple mediums of engagement. ICT is fully integrated. Students are digital natives – technology is part of their lives and although MHIS also uses iuts fully equipped computer lab to practice computer skills, MHIS makes using technology of all sorts part of daily life.
|Do teachers assign homework to their students?||
|Approximate hours of homework given||
Like most schools, students at a PYP school will have some homework. Most homework assignments are inquiry based. Don’t be surprised if your child comes home with a lot of questions, or wants to discuss how problems can be solved in different ways. That is the natural response to motivated learning and inquiry based lessons. The homework assigned is not overwhelming and children still have time for a variety of after school activities. MHIS feels that is important. Long-term and large projects are given ample time to complete.
