In 2017 SIS was one of the first schools in Egypt to take the Apple License officially and fully implement Apple Classroom program for all students from grade 3 to grade 12.
Apple Classroom is an iOS app for teachers that allows them to easily monitor iPads used by students in each of their classes. With Apple Classroom, teachers can control connected iPads, opening apps, creating workgroups, and keeping track of student progress with screen sharing. There are also many other tools that teachers can use to help students get the most out of their iPads.
The power and flexibility of iPad give students the freedom to explore and express new ideas whenever and wherever inspiration strikes. iPads have the power to bring their biggest ideas to life, and built-in apps and intuitive software create an incredibly personal learning experience for each student.
When you bring Apple products into the classroom, listening becomes discovering, interest becomes a wonder, and passive learning becomes active exploration. Lessons come to life with touch, motion, and sound. All of which makes those magical moments happen much more often for everyone.
The school sets the iPads under full control where it installs all the apps, and restrict them so no one can install any apps from outside school permission.
Since we started this program, we’ve noticed the following:
• Improvement in academic performance
• Increase in engagement and motivation
• The rise in resource efficiency
• An integrated focus on content quality and design
At SIS we use:
• 150 Educational apps
• G3-12 iPad instructed sessions
• 1100 iPads used by students and teachers
• We use iPads in ten different subjects.
