San Salvador - School Report Question and Answers

What are the technology requirements for students? Do they need their own laptops/ipads? How is technology integrated into the classroom and homework?

Students need access to some sort of device at home for homework. The lower school uses several apps that are often part of homework (IXL, Raz Kids, and Epic). - Aug 2023

All schools in El Salvador are still prohibited from being 100% in person, so EA is doing a hybrid schedule. Of course, kids need their own devices for virtual school. When I asked whether a tablet or a laptop would be better, they said, “You need both.” Our cheap laptops died and we’ve been fine with tablets. They don’t have much homework (for better or worse) but again, it seems to depend on the teacher. - Mar 2022
