MEDIA, INFORMATION AND TECHNOCULTURE (MIT) CLUB
Grades 4 - 6


RATIONALE


In the field of technology, one’s abilities and skills can be developed through one’s sense of awareness, creativeness, and resourcefulness. The Media, Information and Technoculture Club is an organization in the Ateneo de Zamboanga University Grade School which inspires a shared vision for the comprehensive integration of technology and foster an environment and culture conducive to the realization of the school’s vision.

This club is a support program for the curriculum of Computer Education, Social Science/Sibika at Kultura, and Communication Arts in the Grade School. Through the activities of this organization, students are trained to use technology tools to make a critical analysis of the school and the outside world practices, and cultural meanings associated with technologies of communication, information, knowledge, learning and entertainment.
Through the use of technology tools, each member of the club is given the freedom to express himself/herself and develop his/her God-given talents which will prepare him/her to serve the community and the outside world.
