The iPad-iLearn Program

 

At the AGBU Schools we strive to inspire our children to become effective, enthusiastic, independent and lifelong learners. Our unique curriculum is based on the Lebanese National Curriculum, but it is modified to include international and Armenian affairs and studies, and is often personalized to meet the specific needs and interests of our children.

The curriculum is also innovative and concept-based. This ensures children are provided with multiple opportunities to develop their knowledge, as well as understanding and mastery of competencies, skills and abilities. Lessons are structured to encourage critical thinking, teamwork and collaboration, while also fostering ownership and engagement.

The main curriculum is further enriched by the study of Armenian language, Armenian History and Religion, which immerses our learners in their own heritage and culture, enhances their problem-solving and critical-thinking skills, improves their concentration and their ability to multitask.


  The iPad-iLearn Program
The iPad-iLearn Program is implemented in the lower elementary classes, in partnership with the EDUVATION School Network, integrating e-books and related interactive technology in the teaching and learning process. By 2023, all learners in grades 1 to 6 will be using e-books and corresponding software daily to learn English, Arabic, Mathematics, Science and French. Through this innovative program, our learners explore these subjects through interactive e-books downloaded on their individual iPads, which offers several advantages over the traditional paper-bound textbooks. The use of iPads in the classroom makes learning fun, fosters creativity, increases access to videos, charts, animations and other resources, improves learner enthusiasm and engagement, and lightens the load of books carried by the learners.
