STEM AT ISK
PhilosophyThe educational philosophy of the ISK ICT program will cultivate a culture of innovation amongst teachers, students and our community. ISK provides ICT resources, expertise, and learning opportunities needed to develop the robust ICT capability required for rich and vigorous participation as global citizens.
ISK ICT Goals
At ISK, students develop lifelong ICT capability as they learn to use ICT effectively and responsibly in their learning. Students use ICT to:
Competently access, communicate, remix, and create knowledge and concepts;
Investigate and solve relevant problems;
Work collaboratively in all learning areas at school and in their lives beyond school;
Explore and innovate using design and computational thinking;
Participate ethically and responsibly in a digital environment;
Understand ICT systems and contribute to new ways of doing things as technologies evolve.
Recognizing that technology is multi-disciplinary by nature and has applications in any environment, ISK promotes life-long success by infusing technology utilization throughout the teaching and learning processes.
Please read our tech plan for a more comprehensive understanding of technology at ISK.
Students and teachers utilize technology to support personalized learning throughout an AIMS-based curriculum.
With technology in the hands and minds of students, creativity and problem-solving flow from student-generated inquiry and collaborative investigation.
Students choose how to use and mix technology tools to invent, communicate their ideas, and to build on the learning of others.
While technology tools are readily available, their learning power is in the creativity of students and teachers.
Students use a Design Cycle that prepares them to design and innovate in a natural workflow that is appropriate for young learners, social entrepreneurs, and modern businesses.
