Technology



At MEF International School, technology is another educational tool and is blended into the teaching and learning environment. Technology is used in communication, collaboration, creation, and demonstration of student work. It is also used for researchıng information with the purpose of enhancing the teaching and learning environment and equipping students with 21st Century Skills. Strong emphasis is given to becoming responsible digital citizens as a community throughout the academic year in all class levels.

The Educational Technology Coordinator works together with the information technology department, teachers and students with the purpose of integrating technology as an added value to the teaching and learning environment in the school.

Each student is provided with a MEF IS email account with different privileges and security rights depending on their grade levels. Students can communicate, collaborate and share information and knowledge within the MEF International School community through these school accounts.

The school provides the technological infrastructure with the help of smartboards, Apple TV's, LCD projectors, classroom based access points as well as laptops and ipads for the teaching staff and access to a range of Microsoft, Google and Apple applications and programs for the whole community. "Bring Your Own iPad Program" has been implemented in Grades 5, 6 and 7 and may be extended to Grade 4 in the 2015-2016 academic year after consultation with current MEFIS parents."
