ICT Workshops for Parents and Guardians

15 September 2017

Dear Parents and Guardians,
DSC offers a technologically rich teaching and learning environment. Starting in PG1B, students use technology to demonstrate learning and mastery of competencies and outcomes. Students in Grades 1 to 3 are part of a 1:1 iPad Program which sees students use iPads in all subjects as a tool for learning and a means of cataloguing success to share with teachers and parents/guardians. Students in Grades 4 to 12 are part of a 1:1 Laptop Program.
As one of the pioneers in technology enriched teaching and learning, DSC is at the forefront of 21st century teaching. As a way of assisting parents and guardians in supporting learning at home, DSC offers tailored made workshops and information sessions for families.  Each month the ICT Educational Specialist, supported by the School’s Admissions Team and IT Team, will host a parent and guardian workshop.  The workshops are designed to help parents and guardian become familiar with the technology their children will be using at school and at home. The workshops will be offered in English with language support for Cantonese, French, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, and Putonghua.
The first workshops of the year will be held tomorrow in the School’s Auditorium. Please bring a mobile device with you to the workshop.
We look forward to seeing you at the workshop.
