Information Communication Technology
Computers and their applications are an integral part of daily life and as such ICT is fully integrated across the curriculum.
All classrooms have interactive white boards, enabling our students and fully-trained teachers to display charts and images, search the Internet, play videos and enhance their lessons.
Our state-of-the-art resources allow students unlimited supervised access to a networked computer. At BIS-NY we have done away with the concept of a fixed computing lab, moving to the use of laptops and tablets that allow seamless access in the classroom and everywhere around the wireless campus.
Students gain experience in a range of ICT tools and techniques including word processing, data handling, sequencing instructions and modelling, finding, using and communicating information as well as organisation skills for files and folders.
All of our students in Year 6 and above have personal laptops. This allows our final year PYP and MYP students to integrate technology into their work across all subjects, both in the classroom and at home.
