|Use of technology in the classroom||
Technology-based learning plays a key role in ISC's students’ education from grade one onwards. ISC adopts tablets and laptops to introduce students to Information Computer Technology (ICT) and produces powerful projects, such as movies, websites, and digital portfolios. ISC also adopts Google Apps for Education® to streamline its educational programming and communications within the school among other web-based platforms. Students are also exposed to Microsoft Office® programs and other software that they will later use in their various career pursuits. In time, ISC hopes to equip most classrooms with interactive whiteboard technology as well. Through ISC’s technology-based programs, students will learn how to use technology competently and responsibly.
