Say hello to the gold winner of Digital Technology in Learning Award and the silver winner of Best Montessori-inspired School.
It’s evident that technology is prevalent in the modern world. A school that’s changing the way of learning through technology is GIIS. This EdTech school is designed to provide skill-based learning to 21st-century learners so they can broaden their learning beyond the curriculum.
A school of the future
So, what led to GIIS’ victory? Let’s dive in… The school boasts elite technology, learning tools and fully integrated digital processes to help students learn better. This “school of the future” is also home to about 100 digital classrooms and over 40 skill-based studios to mould digital learners into future global leaders. GIIS also uses a data analytics tool to monitor and evaluate the progress of each student so everyone is given personalised guidance and support to hone their strengths.
The Covid-19 pandemic really put the school’s tech-inspired ethos to the test – and they passed with flying colours. During the Circuit Breaker and the start of home-based learning last year, GIIS was one of the first international schools to switch to virtual learning. And of course, the transition was seamless as teachers and students were already accustomed to using advanced technologies and devices in the classroom. FYI: an “E-school” option (online classes) is still offered to primary grades in the CBSE curriculum, for those who can’t travel back or into Singapore.
Let’s not forget the award-winning Montessori curriculum!
GIIS also offers a great Montessori-inspired education for ages 2.5 to 5 years. The multi-faceted curriculum covers a range of activities to develop early learners’ cognitive, motor and expressive skills. Your little ones will develop language fluency and numeracy skills, and will be introduced to experiential learning, technology relevant for young learners, interactive games and play-based activities.
What a worthy win, indeed. Congrats, GIIS!
