Learning critical thinking leads students to develop other skills, such as a higher level of concentration, deeper analytical abilities, and improved thought processing.
Linguistically and culturally, effective listening and empathy, across diverse teams, are essential skills for every learner.
Not only does a collaborative effort create more holistic results than individual efforts, it also creates knowledge for a greater number of people.
In today’s world of global competition and task automation, innovative capacity and a creative spirit are fast becoming requirements for personal and professional success.
Family Zone Cyber Security
Before your child can bring their device to school, they need to setup a Family Zone account. Family Zone helps keep our students safe online when they access the internet through the school’s network. It also has the capacity to keep our young people safe when accessing the internet through unsafe networks, such as mobile phone networks and your home Wi-Fi, using a unique software called Mobile Zone Application.
Makerspaces at ANI
Makerspaces are collaborative workshops where our students will gain practical hands-on experience across our specialist areas. They also provide hands-on, creative ways to encourage students to design, experiment, build and invent as they deeply engage in science, engineering and tinkering. A Makerspace is not solely a science lab, woodshop, computer lab or art room, but it may contain elements found in all of these familiar spaces. These flexible environments will give ANI students the opportunity to experience all our specialist areas, individually or collaboratively – and is an ideal platform for projects that work across subject area.
The specialist team and the wider ANI teaching staff, are really excited to see what opportunities these spaces will bring in 2020.
