AISL views information technology as a powerful tool to support and enrich teaching and learning. We believe technology should be woven seamlessly into a student's education, enhancing curriculum across disciplines and grade levels.
The future demands that:.
- learners understand that technology brings about rapid change, including moral and ethical considerations;.
- learners are flexible, adaptable, and effective in using tools that generate and respond to change; .
- efficient use of technology to gather, process, evaluate, and present information is an essential skill for all;.
- students are well prepared for the technology related demands found in higher education and in the workplace.
AISL believes that the key to successfully teaching and learning information technology skills is the total integration into relevant and meaningful curricular contexts. AISL teachers do not supplant the teaching of other academic areas to "do technology" but instead use technology to better teach the other academic areas.
AISL has long been an Apple School and has developed a world class IT infrastructure. We have a solid network built on a fiber optic backbone, with campus wide WiFi access. Our classrooms are all equipped with at least one iMac workstation and multimedia setup. We have three IT Labs as well as a fully fledged 1:1 iPad program in the Secondary School and extensive use of class set iPads in the Primary School. l. The School equips all teachers with an iPad (with 3G/4G capability) and a MacBook.
AISL’s IT staff is deeply committed to developing and improving the infrastructure to support technology integration and learning. Talented IT teachers led by a coach help teachers and students to further integrate technology into their daily lives to support and enhance learning.
Digital learning is upon us; consequently, the teaching and learning landscape has changed. AISL is committed to being at the forefront of digital learning in the sub-Saharan African region.
