Today's children are born at a time when the use of technology is the new normal. To cater to such a generation, present-day schools have a critical need to adapt teaching and assessing styles commensurate with the new generation's style of receptiveness and learning. Pathways Schools have invested heavily in developing and implementing technical standards that will engage and excite the learners of tomorrow.
From its inception Pathways has been a leader in technology education and each Pathways School has been awarded as a ‘Microsoft Showcase School’. At Pathways, technology is instrumental in fostering new ways of creating, thinking, expressing and learning.
The flexibility of our building design is complemented by Information Age technology which is a learning tool for the student, and a teaching tool to the teacher and the curriculum. Laptops and Tablets are made available to Primary School students on need basis for specific educational modules. Students from Middle School upwards have personal laptops which are radio-linked to the school intranet. This flexibility is particularly valuable within the classroom or laboratory where seating plans and furniture distribution change constantly to reflect the multiple needs of the curriculum.
From a young age, students are constantly taught to think about responsible technology. There are Digital citizenship weeks and a special focus on academic honesty. All Diploma students are required to use the plagiarism-spotting software Turnitin before they hand in final pieces of work.
