GIS Digital Learning

Our Story

As a leading international school, we have embraced technological advancements and have shifted our paradigms and models to provide a world-class education that prepares our learners for the future.

Since 2012, we have led the way in our innovative use of technologies, introducing a 1:1 iPad program and in 2015 being accredited as an Apple Distinguished School. More recently, we have adopted advanced technologies, such as virtual and augmented reality, AI-web-based applications and interactive data visualization software to enhance and transform learning experiences and outcomes. 

As part of our learning culture, we have a strong commitment to research and development. We have designed and built in-house platforms, bespoke to the school. We are recognised internationally as a centre of excellence in the use of assessment data. Our staff regularly speak at global Edtech conferences and several have received prestigious awards for their outstanding contribution and achievement to digital learning.

We look forward to our continued partnership with Apple in using innovative and future technologies to build brave, brilliant and inquisitive young people.

Effective learning and innovation

Our Approach to Digital Learning

We believe that effective learning is  where the learner is engaged and motivated to explore and  investigate, develop knowledge, skills and understanding, and can  apply these with a sense of purpose, progress and achievement.  To enable us to make this a reality, we have effectively integrated and innovated the use of technology to develop flexible learning environments, deepen experiences and redefine learning. This  has led to innovative changes to the design and development of  our curriculum and provided new ways of personalising learning  to ensure student choice, variation in experiences and outcomes  and equitable access. What’s more, our topic-based curriculum, elective  pathways and our Thrive Internship Programme allow  our learners to connect their academic learning with real-world applications.
