Semarang Multinational School prides itself on its pursuit of excellence in the use technology in learning and teaching. Our vision is to create an evolving digital learning culture that enhances knowledge, skills and understanding in all subject areas and develops all IPC Personal Goals. OUr greatest emphasis is on empowering our students to become life-long digital citizens who creatively and seamlessly use world class ICT to enhance  their life and learning, while communicating and collaborating both locally and globally.

Each of our classrooms is equipped with wireless internet access, a set of ipads and a digital projector.  This allows teachers to integrate the use of educational websites, software and applications into their daily teaching.  Programmes and applications are chosen and used in a way that aims to not just ‘replace’ older technologies, but to enhance and transform learning experiences – offering children a chance to become knowledge creators, sharing their learning in a global context.

Our Bring Your Own Device policy (BYOD) begins from Year 3 onwards.  Children are asked to bring their own device (laptop or tablet of any make and model) for daily use in the classroom.

We have policies and procedures in place to ensure that children are able to use their devices responsibly and safely.
