Information Technology (IT) is a universally accepted educational instrument designed to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the educational system. Computers are used for instruction as well as learning in the school system. An increasing variety of courseware, both “traditional” and “open-ended”, is available for teachers and pupils teaching and studying different subjects offered by the school.
Using information technology in education has made it possible for students to keep on learning, irrespective of where they are. Teachers and professors can send assignments to students and they can complete and submit them even without physically stepping into the classrooms and so learning never has to stop.
Wheaton International School is very progressive in terms of integrating information technology to a greater extent in the daily lives of students and teachers. Besides the generic computer-based education, students use the school software to access their academic data and records while also being able to continue their studies online and remotely as required.
