Use of technology in the classroom

Technology has become a new and key “literacy” for today’s students and professionals. Thus the MET is a technology-rich school, where each student from Kinder to 4th Grade has an iPad, and each student from 5th to 12th Grade has a Mac laptop.

Each classroom is equipped with the latest technological offerings for education, such as SMARTboards in every classroom. These interactive digital boards enhance the teaching and learning experience in the classroom by expanding the nature of content, introducing different media and digital educational resources to lesson plans and providing interactivity through which students can demonstrate their mastery of content.
