How do educational institutions keep abreast of the technological wave? How do we use this knowledge to enhance the teaching and learning programmes within the School?
Instructional, creative, assistive and innovative technology tools are seamlessly integrated into our teaching and learning programmes, allowing your son the opportunity to achieve his academic goals in a way that would not be possible using traditional methods. Hale enhances the teaching-learning environment by utilising Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in an environment that is rich, diverse, dynamic and collaborative, and that extends beyond the internal boundaries of classroom and campus. Our goal is to empower students to become literate, self-directed learners, flexible problem solvers and productive members of a technology-oriented society.
The Education Technology Task Group at Hale School incorporates best practice ICT ideas and solutions from around the world to ensure your son is riding the technology wave of the future.
