Information technology at AISZ takes the form of two dedicated computer labs, over 100 netbooks and 60 iPads.
Each classroom is fitted with a teacher computer and LCD projection units. There is a healthy supply of digital still and video cameras, document cameras, and printers that meet the needs of students and teachers.
Our 1:1/BYOD laptop program in the middle and high school grades has facilitated the seamless integration of technology across the curriculum. In every classroom, teachers and students are empowered by access to the Internet and take advantage of numerous educational websites and online resources. Students are guided to explore, create, and share their work appropriately. Teachers, students, and visitors are expected to follow the school's Responsible Use Policy (click here)
All computers on the campus are connected to the school's server and benefit from a fast Internet connection. Wireless routers are placed strategically throughout the school to offer connectivity from virtually all spaces on campus.
BearNet / Moodle
BearNet is the AISZ branded Course Management System (CMS) powered by Moodle.
Moodle is also known as a Learning Management System (LMS) or a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). AISZ middle and high school teachers utilize BearNet to enhance student learning, making course assignments and feedback accessible in and outside of the classroom. To learn more about BearNet, please visit the Moodle organization's website.
The AISZ community utilizes Google Apps for Education. This dynamic suite of tools allows students, administrators, and faculty to communicate via a school branded Google email account, as well as create, share, and collaborate on a variety of documents, including spreadsheets and presentations. Other valuable tools are part of the suite of Google App products, including calendars, sites, and the cloud-based storage of Google Drive.
