At ISBrescia, Apple “One-to-One” technology is supported by the use of iPads during the PYP and MacBooks during the MYP.
Students from Grade 1 to Grade 6 bring their own personal iPad from home and use applications and safe internet searches to enhance and present their knowledge across the curriculum as and when is deemed appropriate and valuable during the course of the lessons. Students from Grade 7 upwards use their own MacBook to support and enhance their learning.
In the PYP students follow a basic coding programme which builds year upon year to help them to understand the basics of writing their first lines of code, troubleshooting and debugging.
Particular emphasis is put on digital safety and academic integrity.
