The 21st century students are tech prodigies, for they are prompt, updated and just a click away from the world of information. At DPS International, Gurgaon, we use technology as a means, not the mission, for harnessing innovation and creativity to improve educational outcomes for all learners.
We use technology to facilitate and expand learning possibilities that serve as a means to investigate ideas, communicate findings, connect people and innovate solutions.
A dynamic, tech-oriented environment is our top priority to foster literacy, competency and confidence amongst our learners. The skills to live, learn, and work in a society, where communication and access to information is increasingly through internet platforms, social media and mobile devices, has made digital literacy imperative for students at DPSI. Searching, sifting, evaluating, applying and producing vast amount of information requires a strong technology backbone to keep systems functioning at optimal levels within the school.
Blended learning as an educational approach is not new to our culture. We support a Hybrid model of teaching and learning, we have all the technological support we need to sustain these ever-changing requirements.
