ACADEMICS FIRST APPROACH / INDUS TECHNOLOGY
There are 5 aspects of technology that Indus World School considers as the pillars for improved teaching-learning outcomes and for the School to achieve its purpose and goals.
Personalised Student Devices ( Student Tablets )
We provide in many cases personalised and preloaded tablets to students used from Grade 4 onwards to improve learning and for solving test papers. We are now working towards bring-your-own-device (BYOD) regime. Once implemented, BYOD regime will usher multiple contemporary technologies in the School.
We have well equipped computer laboratories for conducting high end programming and learning. Our laboratories are designed and provisioned for one-on-one computing. Many classes including Khan Academy classes and online tests are conducted in the computer laboratories.
