Use of technology in the classroom

EBI strives to be at the forefront of introducing digital tools and technological advances in the classroom. At the same time, we educate our students in media literacy and the best use of new technologies. Our inquiry based programme supports our students in constructing their own understanding of a topic through research, and this skill is especially helpful in navigating the Internet and searching online databases. We inspire our students to be future innovators who are both thoughtful and creative.

Is the school ready to use virtual classrooms when needed? (e.g. teaching lessons online if the school is closed, e.g. during COVID-19 closures)

Yes. EBI has successfully navigated this past year with distance learning. At EBI, we believe that the ideal teaching and learning environment is one in which students and teachers are able to interact with each other in person. Likewise, we also know that it is crucial that we create campus environments that address the health and safety concerns of our community members. Our Plan to Return to Campus has been thoughtfully developed by the COVID-19 Response Team to provide a roadmap that will enable us to accomplish both.
