Modern education requires skills of using various means and tools which will improve learning and make it more attractive to learner. If technology has such a strong impact in our everyday life we can't forget about it in school. Multimedia, Internet, electronic aids often help us to conduct interesting and understandable lessons to young learners. Because of this, our school for a long time improves its modern means of teaching.
Each class in school is equipped in computer. Apart from specialist gastronomic and hotel industry equipement, school has got two IT classes with 20 and 12 computer stands. It is worth mentioning that majority of classes have got projectors and screens which enable to convey information not only in form of lecture, but also in form of film picture or music. Selected classes are equipped in visualizers, flipcharts and interactive whiteboards.



 Polish, Culture Studies

During Polish classes, teachers use Internet sources to present movie clips as well as film reproductions for deeper discussion about their book equivalents. While using YouTube service, we are able to show interdisciplinary nature of art as well as artistic reference to texts of culture. In order to present literary issues, teachers use electronic teaching aids i.e. Multiteka and Multibook (electronic student's book, electronic base containing texts of culture).

 Hotelary Subjects

 During the organization and working techniques in hotel industry lesson I often use multimedia equipment. I prepare interesting presentations and display them during the lesson using multimedia projector and computer. Thanks to that, pupils can gain and learn theoretical knowledge easier. I also often use visualizer. The language of tourism and hotel industry contains a number of foreign language entries which can be easier understood when shown on an example. I often use profession press showing e.g. interesting hotels with a use of visualizer. Multimedia equipment connected to the Internet network enables to virtually explore hotels, continuously update database in student’s workbooks since in field of hotel industry change is quick and has to be followed systematically.

 Gastronomic subjects

During the gastronomic technology classes I often use multimedia equipment. It is the fact that not every dish, product or machine can be shown to pupils during the lesson. That is why using visualizer is so useful while presenting professional press, culinary books, dish production schemes, nutrients, recipes, spices etc. It is easy to use and its operation doesn’t take much time during the lesson. I also prepare interesting presentations and display them using multimedia projector which helps pupils to memorize and learn theoretical information quicker. The multimedia equipment has an Internet connection which is used for displaying short films e.g. food preparation procedure. During the lesson I can also display movies, which I collected throughout the years, and multimedia projector and speakers enable me to offer an interesting and attractive lesson.
