Technology at The International School of the Hague
Our children are facing a future which will be exciting, changing and technology rich. At the International School of The Hague (ISH) we strive to prepare our students by enabling them to develop the skills to best cope with such an environment. We believe that access to technology will help the students develop these skills most effectively. The ISH teachers and students acknowledge that, when focussed appropriately, technology can make a valuable contribution to teaching and learning.
In the Primary School, students have access to computer suites, class sets of iPads and in Year 5 and Year 6 ISH provide iPads to create a 1:1 environment in those years. Upcoming developments in the Primary school facilities will include a new IT/Media Lab.
Parents/guardians are required to provide their children from Y7 to Y9 with an iPad. The minimum specifications for Years 7-8 & 9 are: iPad, 32 Gb, Wi-Fi only. It is also mandatory for parents to provide children in Y10 to Y13 with a laptop. The ISH ICT infrastructure and support is Apple orientated and as a result our preference is for your child to use an Apple device (Minimum specification: Under 3 years old and an updated system of OSX 10.9. or greater). However, should you wish to equip your child with a Windows device then this is acceptable (Minimum specification: Under 3 years old with a minimum of Windows 7 and with wireless support ‘n-protocol’)."
The International School of The Hague (ISH) strives to foster a safe, disciplined, educational environment, both offline and online, to provide an atmosphere where students can develop the skills to become motivated, independent and productive digital citizens. ISH teachers and students know the benefits of technology in the educational environment and strive to ensure that technology is used appropriately and effectively.
All members of ISH will be good digital citizens by being safe, responsible, and respectful with their use of technology. Staff and students will model digital citizenship and encourage others to do the same. Teachers will provide instruction for their students about the appropriate use of technology and online safety. ISH teachers, staff and students will protect their information, treat others kindly, and credit their sources.
