Technology & Education at ISI
The International School of Iceland uses technology to improve classroom instruction and to increase student learning and engagement through technological innovation. iPads are located in all teaching areas and the school has access to our host school's laptop trolleys.
The International School of Iceland's technology aim is to help students discover the power of learning through technology, to build research skills, and to accommodate different learning styles.
Technology in the Curriculum
Coding - Grades K-10
The purpose of coding is to make programming accessible and appealing to students. Students create their own playable and shareable games, solve puzzles and learn how to code at the same time.
Product Design - Middle School (Grades 7-10)
In Project Design, students design and create computer-generated digital products. The focus is on applying technology to identify a problem, develop an idea, create a solution and evaluate/reflect on the process to make improvements for future efforts.
