Technology in the Classroom

ISM approaches technology in the classroom with intention and purpose. Instructional methods vary and students benefit from the meaningful use of modern, up-to-date technology that was designed with the student in mind. These tools, developed by SABIS®, enrich students’ day-to-day learning experience and enhance their academic performance.

In the classroom, students learn dynamic content delivered through state-of-the-art technology.  Interactive whiteboards are used to put content into context and bring it to life.  Instruction is enhanced with digital features such as glossaries, videos, and audio recordings that provide for differentiation among our diverse learners. Students utilize SABIS® E-books, which bring content to life in a format that is light and accessible anywhere.

Beyond the Classroom: SABIS® Digital Platform

ISM utilizes the SABIS® Digital Platform (SDP), a dynamic platform that provides students access to a number of online learning tools such as on-demand tutorials and instructional videos to compliment and reinforce their classroom learning. The SABIS® Digital Platform is also available for ISM parents to use to keep track of their child’s academic performance, behavior, daily school contributions, and attendance.  Accessible via mobile device, tablet, or computer, the SABIS® Digital is an easily accessible and valuable resource for ISM families.

Safe, Inclusive Learning Options:

Serving a diverse community, we understand the importance of supporting ISM families during the recent pandemic and the need to provide inclusive learning choices. Therefore, we offer both fully in-person and fully distanced learning instruction for ISM students. Our online learning program was built to ensure high student engagement and academic integrity, while also maintaining vital connections to teachers and peers. Students receive over 20 hours of live and directed instruction each week with access to a number of resources that support online learning.
