Use of Technology

A unique program with various dynamics is used to encourage students’ enthusiasm for learning a new language. Some homework and projects are displayed in students’ blogs. Technology is used while doing projects and homework. We aim also to improve their handwriting skills. That is why students can only use fountain pens for handwritten assignments. To enable students to notice their own mistakes, projects and homework are not fully checked or corrected. This approach enables the students to be inquisitive researchers.
“Academic” awareness is an important issue. We believe IELEV High School Standard or academic format will be useful in students’ GIB and university education.
