In IAS we recognize that technology and internet are part of our everyday life, and so it is essential to teach students how to use them correctly and responsibly. Our mission is based on a school wide commitment of continual growth and the wise application of technology as well as modeling responsible digital citizenship for our community. For this reason, a Responsible Use Policy has been created. The Policy guidelines apply to all digital devices and are linked to IAS Values.
Each academic level of schooling has a different focus:
Kindergarten focuses on learning and recognizing parts of a computer and their functions, as well as, the development of motor skills with the use of the mouse and the connection between the screen and mouse.
