Our Mission

We at AISB are all teachers and learners of technology. 

We use technology as a means to accomplish our mission and vision. As a learning community, we recognize the rights, responsibilities, and opportunities made possible by an interconnected world, and act in safe, legal and ethical ways. 

We believe that technology use, design, and innovation go beyond concepts and skills; as mindsets, they empower individuals to embrace possibilities, think critically, broaden perspectives, and work together to enrich learning experiences.
