MEF International School aims to educate individuals who can effectively use Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) so that they can become producers of technology. Therefore, we work with our students to gain different skills at each class level. The skills our students have when they graduate from MEF International Primary School can be summarized as follows:
Students will be able to:
- Use any kind of word processor, spreadsheet and presentation softwares for educational purposes.
- Make drawings using any picture / graphics program, and format ready-made pictures.
- Understand the concept of the internet, safely conduct research through the internet and be aware of the rules they should pay attention to when conducting research.
- Understand the framework of digital citizenship rules and apply them in their digital journey.
During Information and Communication Technology (ICT) lessons students learn to understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science; to analyse problems in computational terms; to evaluate and apply IT analytically to solve problems; and to become responsible, competent, confident and creative users of ICT. Computing is divided into 3 areas: Computer Science, Information Technology and Digital Literacy (including eSafety). ICT is integrated in other subjects, such as Literacy and Social Studies, through technology based cross-curricular projects. Students also have the opportunity to work on iPads in the classroom under a teacher’s guidance.
