The ICTech Curriculum is based on the best practices in learning and teaching with technology. This improves the higher order thinking skills of students and prepare them for their future to compete globally. In a world of digital literacy, students are able to integrate 21st century competencies taking lead in communication, leadership, critical thinking and complex problem-solving skills.
The ICTech integrates a range of technological skills such as Word Processing, Programming, Graphic & Media designing, Spreadsheets, Desktop Publishing, Internet, Databases, Operating Systems, Web Development, Mobile App Development, Robotics and Presentation skills.
These skills correlate with subject areas such as Language, Mathematics, Geography, Science, Social Studies and Arts. We ensure students not only learn the technical aspect of technology but they are also able to use this knowledge practically through activities like research, publishing, designing and computer programming to become innovators and entrepreneurs.
Century is an intervention tool that combines artificial intelligence (AI) with the latest research in learning science and neuroscience. The City School has successfully introduced CENTURY for the first time in Pakistan. It customizes the students’ learning path and helps in benchmarking student performance.
