Technology at DIA, Al Barsha

Dubai International Academy, Al Barsha believes in using Technology as a tool to enhance learning for all students. We strive to build learning environments which use technology to enable our students to explore their own ideas and develop themselves as holistic learners.

Mission

Employing modern technologies to create a world-class learning and teaching environment that delivers personalised learning experiences for all students.

Vision

We seek to use technology as a powerful tool to fuel personalised learning, helping to realise the aspirations of every student. We aim to develop skills in our students that transcend across curricular areas, providing our students with the skills they need to successfully live and work in the 21st century. Our approach will ensure that technology is an integral and ubiquitous part of flexible and relevant learning environments. Students will be challenged to harness technology responsibly and effectively and to think critically and creatively to apply to real life situations.

BYOD

Our BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) programme (in Secondary) aims to ensure students have full time access to a laptop or MacBook for enhancing their studies. By using their own device, students are also able to continue to study effectively outside of formal lessons, be it during Study Hall or recreation time in school, or in the evenings and weekends at home. 

To support our BYOD programme, we also have technology suites in school which can be used for accessing specialised programmes such as CAD, Mathematical Graphing, Robotics and Movie Making.
