The Jakarta Intercultural School (JIS) community believes everyone should use technology fluently and fluidly to support their learning and make their thinking visible. To meet these goals, students have access to a wide range of digital tools. Early Years through Grade 1 students have access to shared iPads. Then beginning in Grade 2, students are issued an individual iPad which they use at school up through Grade 4. In Grade 5, students are issued a MacBook Air for use at school, and beginning in Grade 6 they can begin to take their JIS-issued laptop home. Our one to one program (one student to one device) continues through grade 12.
Learning with Technology at JIS is:
• dynamic and borderless, thriving in real and virtual spaces
• expansive, empowering us with the skills and opportunities to creatively express our learning in new dimensions
• personal and compelling, occurring naturally as it does in other aspects of our lives, and
• purposeful, enriching our understanding of how and what we learn.
At JIS we are passionate, inquisitive and creative – learning in Indonesia to be best for the world.
