INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY/MEDIA LITERACY

Braemar House School has worked hard to deliver programming that stands at the forefront of curriculum design in Information Technology. Guided by the standards set for students by The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), Braemar’s unique Digital Literacy curriculum sets out to develop skills in research and information fluency.

We have taken the Ontario Ministry of Education Curriculum for Science and Technology to the next step, with diverse and sophisticated educational software, specialized robotics programming, cameras, lighting and sound systems for dramatic production, integrated computer centres and interactive white boards in each classroom, and a cutting edge one-on-one laptop program specifically designed to prepare Grade 7 and 8 students to be 21st Century Learners.

All our students and staff are active on-line, whether competing in World Math Day challenges or writing on their classroom blogs, researching the internet or downloading relevant resources. Technology at Braemar serves to prepare students for the world that is and will be theirs.

Braemar’s teaching staff have also identified themselves as strong “digital learners”, incorporating recent research and professional development into daily teaching strategies and administrative efficiencies.
