Education Technology

Students and faculty have access to a technology-rich learning environment at all campuses. Responsible use is a focus as students employ technology and faculty promote the development of digital citizenship across the curriculum.

 

Educational Technology at ZIS is grounded in the Mission Learn, Care, Challenge, Lead.

  • Students in our Early Childhood Center and Lower School have access to iPads in the classroom.
  • Each student in Grades 1 to 5 has access to his or her own iPad for use in the classroom, authentically integrating technology and research skills into the curriculum to complement the units of inquiry.
  • In Grades 6 to 12 there is a one to one tablet PC program that enables students to develop critical skills while seamlessly integrating information technology into the curriculum.
  • A comprehensive e-learning platform complements classroom instruction providing learning opportunities anytime and anywhere.

Faculty participate in professional development and professional learning communities to continually foster best practice and have access to multiple tools and platforms to support communication, collaboration, creativity and problem solving in classes and activities.
