ISV has increasingly embraced the digital component of education in an ever-changing world. Students living in society today are called the YOUTUBE generation. Why? If they need information or practical guidance about a topic whether educational or for entertainment purposes the go-to platform is YOUTUBE. In an increased effort to minimize the use of paper and to increase the use of online resources and digital information we, as a school have embraced the digital revolution by purchasing several Chromebooks to be used as an educational tool. Google Classroom has become an integral part of many a classroom and subject teacher. We are dedicated to exploring the educational alternatives and using the resources we have to enhance and develop healthy digital education. As educators we are using digital education to various extents, some more fervently than others, Our aim is to fully realize the goals we have set in terms of digital education by the year 2020.
