Students using an ipad in science

Our Connected Learning Community leverages advanced technologies and progressive teaching approaches to enhance student learning, promote collaboration and facilitate the creation and sharing of knowledge locally and globally.

We aim to provide ever-present computing and network access for our students on a common learning platform, while further developing our educational practices to increase collaboration, enable flexible progression and differentiated instruction, and more actively reflect a real-world learning environment.

YIS teachers have enthusiastically embraced the integrated use of technology for many years. We work closely with students to promote responsible digital citizenship and use of technology. This is guided by clearly articulated expectations, but also the shared recognition that students must make wise decisions about their own behavior through a sense of good citizenship and responsibility to the YIS community. See our Responsible Use Policy for further details.
