Educational Technology ("EdTech") includes both the technology-based tools (physical and digital) designed for classroom use, as well as the manner in which they are incorporated.
At ACS Athens, we believe integrating technology into teaching can deepen, enhance, and extend student learning - especially when EdTech is aligned with educational goals, and implemented in meaningful, relevant, and pedagogically appropriate ways.
In an increasingly connected and digital world, it is imperative that ACS Athens keeps abreast of advances in EdTech and media, while also following research and practitioner evaluations of their effectiveness for learning.
As a result, carefully selected learning technologies from interactive whiteboards and tablets to Moodle, LEGO Mindstorms, VR, and subject-specific educational software are integrated into all classes across the three schools with the lens of supporting and optimizing face-to-face (traditional), i2Flex (blended) and online student learning experiences.
