Use of technology in the classroom

We have Hybrid classrooms that enable teaching simultaneously to students in-campus and at home. A camera with Artificial intelligence human tracking follows the teacher wherever he moves, and a special Array Conference Microphone captures teacher’s voice and students voices with crystal clear quality. Students at home can see and interact with the students in-campus, and students in-campus can also see and interact with students at home. We have smart interactive whiteboards and projectors in each classroom. All our books are virtual, and our platforms are Google for Education, Saavas Realize (formerly Pearson) and Santillana Compartir. We are also the only school in the Dominican Republic that belongs to National Online Safety.
