Use of technology in the classroom

In the Early Years School, teachers use iPads to enhance project-based learning. K2 students have SMART Boards in their classrooms and have access to certain parts of the new EYS/ES MakerLab. Besides having these same classroom features, as well as using the MakerSpace on a regular basis, students in the Elementary School are part of the Information Communication Technology (ICT) program that engages students in designing, creating, and innovating in a rapidly changing world. Students learn digital literacy and digital citizenship skills so that they are comfortable not only using technology easily and correctly but also using it in a responsible manner. Besides basic user skills, they also learn more specialized techniques such as simple coding and remote group co-authoring, which is integrated into their regular curriculum.

The High School uses a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program, in which each student purchases his or her own MacBook for use at school and at home. Nido provides all required software, which gives students powerful research, analytical, co-authoring, and presentation tools, aiding them not only during their years at Nido but also contributing to the skill set on which they can draw at university and beyond. HS technology and innovation electives include digital video, programming, new product design and development, design technology, robotics, and yearbook design and publishing.
