We are always open to new methods and technologies aimed at making the education process more efficient and exciting. Such approaches forward the teachers’ professional advancement, stimulating them to develop and gain new skills instead of settling for traditional methods only. And with the help of these new methods and technologies the students gain more adaptability and intellectual curiosity.
In CISC the use of innovations starts directly in the classrooms where the teachers and the students use interactive boards, which helps in the process of mastering new knowledge.
