At VSA we believe that access to technology provides us with a great opportunity to enhance student learning and teaching effectiveness. As we are a one-to-one Macbook school, teachers and students are continually making the best of learning technology in the classroom. Students use their computers as a means to better their organizational skills, as a tool of inquiry, and as a creative instrument. Students use iBooks Author to create ePortfolios that showcase there progress in their MYP subjects and use this ePortfolio as part of student led conferences.
Teachers are provided with professional development opportunities to help them keep up to date on new applications and hardware, as well as share best practice in this area.
The school has a Learning Technologies Coordinator for the secondary section in order to maximize growth in using technology effectively in the classroom.
