Libreville - 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 from first grade and on are required to have a device to bring to school. In primary school this can be any kid-friendly tablet or laptop. All homework is assigned and submitted through an online Managebac program. The school has seamlessly gone from in-person to online schooling as the pandemic demanded, though of course this requires a lot of parent oversight in kindergarten and first grade, and I was able to switch to temporarily attend school virtually when we went on an extended trip out of Gabon. My son reads books on EPIC and accesses online materials through Managebac in the classroom. The school has online accounts for a few encyclopedia websites that my son is beginning to use to learn to research. Most work, however, is not on the computer at this young age. - Jan 2022
