M'KIS Information Technology at a Glance
The Mont'Kiara International School has implemented a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) program for all students in Grades 6 -12. For information regarding the specifics of this program please use the menu below to learn more about BYOD at M'KIS.
Information Technology Education offered at M’KIS prepares students with the technical, practical and social attributes considered key to high performance in a digital world. Using an integrated model, teachers are asked not to pause the teaching of daily academics to “do technology”. but to employ information tools, where reasonable, to make core subjects more exciting, interactive, collaborative and productive.
Our Information Technology program uses a set of standards and benchmarks inspired by NETS for Students, and which emphasize:
- Collaborative activities which stimulate productivity, communication, and creativity
- Accommodation of diverse, multi-modal learning styles
- Flexibility and imagination in making use of current and emerging digital technologies
- Awareness of social and ethical issues affecting our digital and actual lives
