  5. 5. Our Students: Ayo, Year 9 Well it does not really matter if we like it or not; it is becoming a very essential part of our world today. We live in the 21st century, and this is part of our modern day world. People say we should stick with the basics of teaching like a pen and pencil and that’s all that’s required for a student’s learning, but just as a paper and pencil was a great idea back in the 'olden days', so is a laptop or iPad today.

  8. 8. Tech Tools
  9. 9. Our Students: Sakile, Year 12 We use technology to access the internet so we can do research and communicate our ideas. Being a part of an international school means we need to consciously be a part of our international community, and that means the whole world. The Internet can be used as a faster tool to share information and communicate ideas. It would be very difficult to help a cause if it took four years for a reporter to learn about it, research it, travel back, write the report, edit it, and finally publish it in a newspaper. These days, people can update their blogs or tweet about their experiences or even upload drafts or pictures of what they are doing. Also, it is much easier to access old information. The New York Times has articles dating back to the 1800's on their website. If I wanted to find that article without the internet, I'd have to find a large library that has newspaper clippings (which would DEFINITELY not be in Angola). The Internet makes learning much easier, so that students and teachers can focus more on learning more difficult and complex topics than spending hours just trying to find one newspaper clipping.
  10. 10. Learning is Social
  11. 11. Our Students: Alaric, Year 7 A lot of our homework needs to be done with Word, Powerpoint, Excel, Managebac, and MyMaths. We also need Internet access because this is how a lot of students get their answers. There is also a lot of software on the Internet that helps us organize data like MindMaps and Google Drive.
  12. 12. Humanities
  13. 13. Our Students: Aiden, Year 8 Technology helps create a new world of understanding and exploration for people of all ages. You can use technology in school and use it at home to collaboratively work on a paper or just finish up work that is for homework.

  21. 21. Our Students: Enzo, year 7 With technology it is easier and more practical to do many things, like researching and sharing documents. With technology we can share our work with the whole world and see if somebody doing the same program in the U.K. has any ideas about my project, while without computers and the Internet I will not be able to have such a good learning experience.
