#Newchallenge #Newregulations #Digitaltransformation
The European School has started the new academic year with new beginnings, new ideas, new regulations and new technology resources. School digital transformation plan contribute to our ability to effectively respond to challenges. They are essential prerequisites for another successful school year.
Technology in the 21st-century education plays a major role. At the European School, we continue to incorporate emerging technology resources in classrooms to make learning more student-oriented and effective in this new reality. Our goal is to support the first-graders and their parents to address the challenges of distance learning and make the learning process interesting and flexible for kids. To achieve this goal, the school decided to provide the first -grade students with a multifunctional technology device. This device, together with other new technology resources integrated into our classrooms: interactive whiteboards, conference cameras, and document scanners will make online learning more similar to face-to-face learning.
Due to the current epidemic situation in Georgia, on September 15th, classes will begin in online mode at the European School.

Supporting continuous professional development of our teachers and integrating new technologies in teaching are the main goals of the European School. The school develops consistently and tends to reflect on and respond to the ever-changing world. The European School starts the new school year with new beginnings.
