The first MBIS PTA Coffee Morning was hosted on August 29th, 2016 at School. The weather held up for us and we enjoyed our time out on the terrace/ walkway above the Cafeteria! Following a few words by Ms. Niedermann, we had a brief introduction to the newly appointed Office Bearers and Class Representatives. And then it was time to savor the delicious breakfast spread, meet other parents and teachers, forge new friendships and connect as a single community. We thank the School Management and Administration for their support in making our morning so special!
The role of ICT is to provide integrated support to the whole curriculum via meaningful technology integration. The Units of Inquiry develop many ICT areas of competence and skills, such as using the internet safely and effectively, researching, inquiring and presenting work electronically.
ICT emphasizes the development of competencies in a range of tools that can be used by the learners across the whole curriculum and in their everyday lives:
- as a tool for inquiry
- a platform for communication between the school and the wider community
- a tool for reflection
- a tool for assessment
- a resource / research tool
- a tool to viewing and presenting learning
- a tool for entertainment
There is a strong emphasis on Digital Literacy and Digital Citizenship through our Digital Literacy and Information Literacy Scope and Sequence documents that guide our learning experiences.
