Digital Learning

In today’s digital age, technology has become an integral part of our lives. It has revolutionised the way we communicate, learn, and work. Therefore, it is imperative for educational institutions to keep up with the changing times and provide students with the necessary tools to succeed in this technologically advanced world.

In the classroom, students will use their laptops for a multitude of purposes. Laptops serve as a valuable tool for research and information gathering. With access to the internet, students can explore various sources and expand their knowledge on any given topic. Additionally, laptops enable students to create and edit documents, presentations, and spreadsheets effortlessly. The integration of laptops in the classroom fosters a dynamic learning environment that prepares students for the digital age ahead.

Students are to bring their laptops to each class and will have access to platforms including Google suite, electronic textbooks, Education perfect and from 2024 classes will utilise the Vivi platform. Vivi is an interactive platform that allows for students to work collaboratively on tasks, project wirelessly to the class projector and take annotated class notes on their devices.
