Technology is evolving at a frenetic pace, and innovations that were unheard of a decade ago are now commonplace. Being technologically literate is a requirement for most workplaces. At OWIS, we provide a technology-rich environment that prepares students to keep pace with the latest developments in the digital age.
Recognising the many benefits of technology in the classroom, we're proud to provide:
iPads, which assist in collecting student work samples, capturing learning experiences and creating digital portfolios.
Footage can be shared with parents and throughout the school.
Audiobooks, which supplement our library offerings.
Science labs equipped with state-of-the-art data-logging equipment; including high-precision balances, portable digital colourimeters and a range of sensors.
Because when children feel happy at school, they feel safe to explore, blossom and reach their fullest potential.
Every part of the curriculum allows students to become familiar with hardware programmes for classrooms. Devices such as iPads, Apple TVs, LED displays and advanced audio systems foster inquiry and maximise student engagement. Rapid Wi-Fi allows for uninterrupted study and research.
Using the most up-to-date hardware allows us to employ innovative software programs for classroom instruction. These tools address a variety of learning styles. Cutting-edge software provides for interactive learning that sparks students' curiosity and improves overall achievement.
Our networks, databases, applications and servers are always secured and well-maintained, protecting the integrity of student data and allowing for unhindered learning.
At OWIS, we believe that students learn best in a safe, secure environment. Toward that end, we provide students with lockers equipped with special access controls. Knowing that their belongings are secured enables students to concentrate on the tasks at hand. Our school is equipped with the latest security and surveillance systems to monitor what's happening on campus at all times and alert staff, teachers and authorities to potential threats right away. Members of our school community deserve a safe place to learn, and such a setting gives students the freedom to explore their interests, cultivate their creativity and unlock hidden potential.
I like that technology plays enough of a part within my children's studies but does not dominate basic skills towards literacy with reading, writing and presentation. Putting pen to paper is still an important communicative skill to master, and I know of other schools where iPads dominate. At OWIS, there is very much a balance.
