For many schools, one-to-one education represents the ultimate in technology infusion. CIS is the first 1:1 iPad school in Bangalore, having begun this journey in 2011. And we’re continuously searching for fresh, exciting material and resources to successfully integrate into the curriculum. We see the 1:1 iPad program as a paradigm shift in how instruction is delivered.
In our Early Years and Elementary programs, students and teachers have access to three carts of 24 iPads each. These are regularly used at learning centers to research, explore and create. In August 2015, our Elementary and Secondary Tech Suite was opened. It is here during technology class that students learn to create a variety of content, practice coding, and do much more using iPads and robotics.
Starting from Grade 6, students enter our 1:1 iPad program and continue until Grade 12. All course content for these grades is delivered via the devices, including textbooks, subject-specific content, videos, and other resources. Students complete assignments on their iPads, and create a variety of projects including movies, comics, and interactive books as part of their course work.
Parallel to this, our secondary technology classes occur using the iOS and Windows platforms, with many learning activities blending iPad and desktop. ICT (IGCSE), ITGS (IB), and Computer Science (IGCSE and IB) are taught in grades 9-12.
