DAIS Technology Mission Statement

Through a stimulating media and information literacy curriculum, students will learn a variety of productivity, collaborative and creative tools, empowering them to become capable and ethical global citizens.

DAIS is vested in making emerging technologies available to the school-wide learning community. Starting August 2013, the  school began to roll out Apple’s latest iOS/X devices. This included iMac desktops for the  library  and classrooms as well as MacBook Pro laptops, iPads and iPods for students and teachers.

Students in Kindergarten  through 5th Grade are working in a one-to-one iPad environment. While students in 6th-8th Grade are using MacBook Pro’s.  With these tools available, learners feel empowered to create, communicate, collaborate and research in ways not possible before.

DAIS is excited about igniting a brushfire of innovation by being one of the few education institutions pioneering Apple tools in the Republic of Kazakhstan.
