At St. Andrews International School, Sukhumvit 107 we are conscious that our students operate in an increasingly digital and global world. A huge proportion of today’s teenagers are very active in social networks, even to the point of adopting relatively new and unknown networks and platforms very quickly.
In order to prepare our students as effective 21st century citizens, we need to provide them with the opportunity to learn all the digital skills necessary for them to use relevant technology, and teach them how to use that knowledge responsibly. We believe this can be accomplished by developing what are known as the “Seven C’s”. Those C’s include: critical thinking; creativity and innovation; collaboration; cross-cultural understanding and communication. There are evident links between these skills and the ten attributes of the IB Learner Profile and Approaches to Learning (ATL) skills that we strive to develop in students through the IB Programmes at St. Andrews.
Sukhumvit 107 is proud to be the first and only secondary school in Thailand to be an official Common Sense Digital Citizenshp Certified School. Read more
At St. Andrews International School, Sukhumvit 107 we provide our students with access to technology in the classroom through a vast array devices and online resources. Our strategy on devices is changing rapidly, and is in response to the rampant change occurring in the wider community. Classrooms are equipped with interactive whiteboards and students receive dedicated iPad and computer time. IGCSE and IB students are required to bring in their own laptop.
Our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) is now fully deployed and has moved workflows and resources to a far more educational look and feel. The key to this VLE is the ability to triangulate access to information and learning resources between teachers, students and parents, providing much greater levels of communication and visibility to the whole school community.
St. Andrews International School, Sukhumvit 107 is committed to supporting our teachers in the use of digital technologies and equipping them with the skills and knowledge required for 21st Century Learning. This support is evident in a variety of ways including providing each teacher with their own laptop and offering extensive professional development opportunities to teachers. Having highly skilled teachers is integral to the success of the program.
