If the learning is meaningful, transferable and linked to real life for the student, then it is retained. This increases the importance of interdisciplinary activities. Another application of interdisciplinary activities is school projects, where all students participate and work with several subject teachers.
At Tarsus SEV, technology finds its application in providing opportunities to children with multiple learning styles and to make learning permanent by repeating them in an interactive environment. Our IT program is structured to channel the IT-related interests of the modern day student into a positive learning experience. In computer-assisted teaching, our teachers use various software as well as some national and international academic websites to reinforce the teaching of a given unit/topic. This program is implemented with the help of our state-of-the-art IT laboratories ln the main building and the computers in the libraries.
The library lessons for each course are planned in the beginning of the academic year. According to the plan, students make research in the library under the guidance of their course teachers as well as librarians. These activities aim to impart the skill of reaching correct information in a prompt manner to the students.
