The main objective of the ICT course is to enable students to use modern digital technologies, communication tools and network services to find, manage, integrate and evaluate various information, to solve problems and to participate in the modern society of knowledge. Also, a key factor is the active participation of each student, the continuous interaction and collaboration with the teacher and among classmates.
The teaching of Informatics at the Gymnasium has a clear laboratory orientation, which is why the Informatics Laboratory is a place of study, research, creative participation and collaboration for students to encourage cooperative learning, self-motivation and creativity.
We also pay special attention to issues related to the Internet and its safe use by our students.
