Technology & Innovation at TIS

Sep 26, 2017

I’ve always felt that TIS is an innovative school. Whether it be teacher collaboration, progressive teaching practices or access to & effective use of technology, there are many ways that TIS goes above and beyond.

The recent school expansion afforded some interesting opportunities that most schools would be envious of - suddenly there was an abundance of space. What do you do with a large space that was once the secondary school library? This scenario had the administration & department coordinators sharing ideas on how to best use the spaces that were now available.

We wanted to turn the old library space into a learning space that all teachers and students at TIS could access. It was decided early on that our new space had to serve many purposes & interests and we took inspiration from innovative schools such as Shekou International School and Suzhou Singapore International School; both have innovative learning spaces and classrooms that are designed for student collaboration & comfort. We named our new space the “Learning Lab” and it was designed to include the following elements:

The Learning Lab is now open for students & teachers to use. If you are visiting the school I encourage you to stop by and take a look around. I think you will be impressed with the possibilities that this space offers to TIS staff and students.
