This is the first in a series of weekly “School Snapshots,” where we will give you a peek into innovative schools and classrooms from around the world. A classroom is an insightful look into what the life of a student looks like in different corners of the world. It’s a reflection of the educational beliefs, initiatives, and different levels of technological innovation present at these institutions that nurture the hearts and minds of each country’s future citizens.
