Alhumdulillah at Hamzah Science Academy, we have incorporated an IT Lab for our students. Here at HSA, we believe in priming our students for a brighter future in school and thereafter. Our elementary students are scheduled for regular classes in our IT Lab featuring technology and computers. Through this initiative, we seek to increase interactive strategies thereby fostering critical thinking skills and the ability to grow intellectually. Our classes also help facilitate cooperative learning, as well as the chance to work independently.
Computers and other kinds of technology give children a greater sense of empowerment because information is readily available at their fingertips. The more educated kids are on how devices work, the more confidence they will have in their ability to expand their knowledge in any subject area. Technology-powered learning puts students (not educators) at the center of their own education and empowers them to take control of their own learning.
