Digital Literacy

The focus of our Digital Literacy program does not lie in which particular technologies our students are using. Rather it concentrates on how students are using digital resources; and how this reinforces our values and our educational philosophy. Technology at NIS is leveraged to cultivate creativity and a maker-centric learning environment.

Children construct knowledge more effectively when they are makers of things. The projects we foster in the classroom allow students to become authors, video editors, camera operators, music composers, programmers, app designers and more. Digital technology allows the completion of tasks otherwise impossible to achieve, helping students to make their thinking visible.

It changes the role of users, transforming them from consumers of information to producers and broadcasters of digital content. This is the most important reason we all need to learn and develop the skills, attitudes and aptitudes to be digitally fluent.

Our digital resources and methods support active learning, promote collaboration and fundamentally change instruction. Instead of teaching technology as a separate subject, it is integrated into how the curriculum is accessed and delivered. Students are encouraged to produce digital content, use interactive devices and plan and track their own learning processes.
