These students work together to solve challenging Math problems such as telling time using an interactive app.

Each iPad in use at ISI is packed with carefully chosen apps to support our educational program and our mission of creativity and fun in learning.

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. 

Mission Statement

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.
