Use of technology in the classroom

From Elementary School and up, curriculum is supported and enhanced by comprehensive technology resources, such as SMART boards, iPads and laptops. GISSV utilizes teaching technologies to strengthen its pedagogical work as well as its students' independence, self-organization and technological skills.

GISSV's technology-enhanced approach is based on three concepts: In Elementary School, students learn laptop/computer fundamentals, internet research and file management. Starting in grade 5, students use iPads in their classrooms, which enables them to develop additional multi-channel learning strategies. Starting in grade 7, students bring their own laptop to school, and GISSV systematically uses technology to enhance students' independent and cooperative learning as well as creative and imaginative thinking.
