1:World

At AIS-R, we believe that learning environments provide universal access and choice, both physically and digitally. In these spaces, our learners inquire, collaborate and create; solving problems that are authentic, personalized, and relevant to their learning and the world, while understanding the implications of their voice.

In order to put these tools in the hands of AIS-R’s learners, the school has implemented a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program in grades 3-12. This program is called 1:World and it helps us achieve AIS-R’s Mission of educating our learners to be responsible, productive and ethical global citizens. This 1:1 ratio of devices to learners gives students the tools they need to communicate, collaborate and create, at a global level. The program empowers learners to become proactive, engaged and self-directed global citizens who navigate the digital world to find, evaluate and use information. AIS-R’s learners understand how to use devices to: communicate effectively, learn anywhere, enhance collaboration, become ethical digital citizens, reduce their global environmental footprint, connect with the world in order to understand and positively change it, create new and engaging content, and experience individualized and self-directed learning.

Our technology program helps AIS-R’s students fulfill the school Mission in the following ways:

  • by giving AIS-R’s learners opportunities to connect with the world to become global citizens;
  • by giving them access to communication tools, helping them learn to communicate effectively;
  • by providing them with the same collaboration tools teachers use to be productive;
  • by providing them with learning resources that help them develop a responsible balanced approach to technology use;
  • and above all, by teaching them to use the devices they use everyday, to learn, to research, to find information, to analyse and synthesize data, to consider multiple perspectives of an issue and become continuous learners, both inside and outside the classroom.
