Connected Learning Programme
The Vienna International School has a successful history of supporting and transforming learning experiences for students through the appropriate and purposeful use of technology across the curriculum.
Students at VIS access and learn how to use digital tools to inquire and research, to collaborate and participate globally, and to extend and present their creativity in ways not possible without technology. They do so as an integrated and authentic part of their learning in subject areas and in doing so, develop the critical digital literacies, skills and citizenship competencies necessary to achieve their potential in a changing world.
In order to ensure all students have access to digitally-rich learning experiences and develop the digital literacies and competencies necessary to be successful in the 21st century, VIS launched the Connected Learning Programme (CLP) in August 2015. The CLP is an educational technology programme that begins with providing access to digital tools to support learning. As such:
- Students in ELC & Grade Primary have access to shared school-owned iPad trolleys.
- Each student in Grades 1 through 3 access their own school-owned iPad.
- In 2016-2017 students in Grades 4 through 8 are expected to bring their own laptop device.
- In 2017-2018 students in Grades 4 through 12 are expected to bring their own laptop device.
