Technology plays an increasingly important role in day-to-day instruction. Our students begin learning about responsible technology use and online citizenship from Grade 1; though we teach Technology as a single-subject, we strongly emphasize the use of technology as a tool for learning by all teachers and students.
The world has shrunk significantly. Technology allows us to effortlessly connect with others around the world. By giving students access to cultures, perspectives and ideas that differ from their own, they become more open-minded, respectful and appreciative of their world and its diverse communities. They learn to understand and appreciate different perspectives. Through ICT, there are greater opportunities for interactive communication and exchange of information through global collaboration, authentic learning, expansion of the learning community and empowerment for all learners.
