MILE School is developing digital teaching as an integral part of course studies. MILE School offers technology as a learning tool from the first years of school, as a support to students developing a critical appreciation of what they learn. Indeed, one of digital teaching’s aims is to become acquainted with those tools that allow for a constructive and informed use of technology.
Students learn to conceive and develop digital and multimedia products, by gathering online research techniques that will allow them to critically appreciate content.
The iPad is the main tool of the digital teaching program since it is a mobile device that offers a wealth of educational tools. Thanks to its simplicity, the iPad allows students to focus their attention on content and its multimedia presentation and not on the device’s technical complexity as would be the case if they used other products on the market.
The school operates an ad hoc digital platform for the management, the sharing, and the archiving of the digital projects that have been developed by students, both in teams and individually. Throughout the year, the school ensures the digital teaching program develops in a balanced and functional way, by hosting a series of events, that invite families to see presentations relating to specific digital projects and more general topics related to the evolution of digital technology.
