Part of our mission in Modern Knowledge Schools is to raise Global and life-long learners. Technology enables us to provide the environment and the tools that will bring about these dimensions into the teaching and learning process.
I believe that Education is about unleashing the latent qualities and talents that all children are born with so that they can fulfill their role in contributing to an ever-advancing- civilization.
Integration of technology has been introduced gradually in our schools, in order to ensure that we are building the culture that goes along with empowering our teachers and igniting the passion of learning within our students.
We started a 5-year plan in 2015 that aims at full integration of technology K-12 by 2020. Starting from establishing adequate infrastructure with the latest network system and becoming a G-Suite Educational Institution in 2015.
The school is now moving towards digital empowerment of students in the High and Middle School by introducing 1:1 Chromebooks implementation program. As well as piloting different technologies in the Elementary and KG to identify best options.
We are keen to promote innovation throughout our institution and will strive to equip our students with all they need to build the foundation of the future.

The Chromebook 1:1 program at MKS has been a remarkable success, and our school has seen incredible growth in technology use in recent years. In the 2019-2020 school year, we are proud to be introducing iPads in grades three to five. We are proud to say that in just a few short years we have fully integrated 1:1 technology in grades 3 to 12- what an advancement for teaching and learning at MKS!
To share the success of our Chromebook program and explain the wide-reaching effects of tech integration on teaching and learning, the Technology Department created a short documentary with the MKS Film Club in the 2018-2019 school year. Special thanks to Zaid Ahmad and Meera Khusro for their production work, and to Mr. Bankes for his assistance in producing the film.
Enjoy the documentary!
