At ISOCS ICT/Media Tools are used by staff and students as a resource to enhance teaching and learning opportunities. Using technology is a key part of classroom programs.

“ICT provides opportunities for the transformation of teaching and learning and enables students to investigate, create, communicate, collaborate, organize and be responsible for their own learning and actions. ICT allows students to make connections and reach a deeper understanding of its relevance and applicability to their everyday lives. Through the use of ICT, learners develop and apply strategies for critical and creative thinking, engage in inquiry, make connections, and apply new understandings and skills in different contexts.” (IBO, June 2011)
