A school committed to digital citizenship, GEMS International School, Al Khail aims to prepare students with compassion, competence, and resilience for a fast-paced global community.
Their PYP coordinator, Mark Krabousanos shares, “We always encourage students to find out how technology can assist and differentiate learning, but as teachers, we weren’t making the best of technology ourselves. For instance, when we planned units using the Google Suite, our other curriculum coordinator and I had to become full-time messengers of data, just to collate our planning documents and keep them up-to-date.”
“On Toddle, our planners were updated automatically and we also had access to real-time curriculum analytics that helped inform our planning. When we found the technology that could adapt to the way we worked, instead of the other way around, that was half the battle won for our school!”
