Victorious Kidss Educares (VKE), an IB World School is one of those future-ready schools which recognizes and uniquely integrates modern technology into the classroom pedagogy, with an advanced concept of International teaching and learning practices. It is the digitized school with the fastest Ethernet connection of 318 Mbps which is easily accessible across the campus. This level of accessibility serves the purpose of providing instant information to all the kids, irrespective of the growth in the school’s population. With this great power, comes the great responsibility of guiding the millennial in understanding the core basics behind the upcoming technological developments and the creative use of available tools.

Hence, every kid at VKE, right from EYP (12 to 15 months old ~ Early Years Program) to DP (Diploma Program) has complete access to a state of the art ‘Apple iMac Lab’ and an ‘iPad Lab’ and five (5) ‘Microsoft based Computer Labs’ sheltering around 270 systems equipped with multiple application-based programs which are being used today for design and development. Young kids right from PYP (3 to 12 years old) Primary Years Program) learn Graphics for Website and Video Game designing.

The ‘iPad Lab’ also consists of 25 iPads and several ‘Amazon Kindle’ Devices filled with digital libraries for study and research. And all the classrooms, instead of a blackboard limited by its space and utility, are facilitated with ‘Interactive 6’ X 4’ ft ~ White Digital-boards’ which takes the children to virtual world of interactive learning, familiarity with the digital learning, also are much more efficient and fun to learn from. As they learn all of the varied ways of using these systems, essentially, they become more and more enlightened of the existing responsibilities/attributes and challenges which arise with digital utilization. And the abundance of exposure to digitality, provided in the early learning stages, helps them gradually detach the desire to overuse, get intoxicated with screen time or compulsively exploit technology. Welcome to our conceptual world of differentiated teaching and learning pedagogy! What would you do, or you think of an action plan, which would create better and brighter kids, ready to face the world of tomorrow?

Our children are no longer the people,

as we were in the school?
