Educational Technology

Our students have learned a dialect that we don’t always understand. They communicate in many different modalities as a result of technology. At Sayfol, we embrace technology and ensure it helps us maximize every student and teacher’s potential.

Future Ready Classroom

We have enabled wireless access throughout our campus for students and teachers. Students can access programmed learning tools such as Britannica Online Encyclopaedia, Pearson Bug Club and Abacus.

We encourage the idea of flipping the classroom through educational programmes like Kahoot, Khan Academy and English Central.

Students and teachers use digital tools such as iPads, Laptops and smartphones as an essential part of teaching and learning experience.

In addition, we have implemented a school management and communications system through School Kompanion which allows real time exchange of information and communication between students, teachers, parents and the school management.

 

What do we do currently

Sayfol strives to use educational technology assist with implementation of the Pearson Edexcel Curriculum. It is used as a tool to raise standards and graduation and performance rates, as well as to prepare students for life beyond school. Technology is employed together with direct instruction and highly qualified guidance.

Currently Sayfol has a number of different ways in which technology is integrated into teaching and learning. All teachers are equipped with the latest iPad and laptops enabling them to carry out educational research alongside the students to support the learning and assessment process in the classroom. Wi-Fi is provided to students to access educational material in their classrooms. In addition, the school has three fully equipped computer labs with the most recent applications and software.
All of the above are supported by layered policies to ensure that students learn about using technology responsibly, and adhere to school policies.

The School is currently looking at ways to expand and upgrade the use of technology, and we are also in the final phase of implementing a new educational management system. This system will provide the students, teachers and parents with greater opportunity to engage with various aspects of the students’ progress in school. Our new world class multi-purpose sport centre will also give the opportunity, for further expansion of our technology- enhanced learning in sports education.
