We run our Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) approach from Grades 2 – 12 at RWA. With many of our students owning their own device and using these for their personal use, we have recognized the need to encourage students to utilize technology in a seamless fashion for their education. The BYOD approach helps to support our drive towards developing learning environments for our students which will develop the skills they need to be successful to live and work in the 21st century.
In our BYOD classes, as in all classrooms, we view technology as a tool in the classroom which can enhance and much more effectively personalize the learning experience. Technology at RWA is not seen as something which replaces all previous approaches. We still firmly believe in developing key skills such as handwriting and bookwork, just as we believe in developing key 21st century skills such as communication and collaboration, critical thinking and creativity.
