BYOD at DIA

Our philosophy to empower students to take control of their own learning and in order to achieve this, Dubai International Academy had introduced the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program as of September 2013. Students from Year 4 to 13 are encouraged to bring their tablets/laptops and benefit from the use of technology to enhance their learning within the school. Students have been provided access to a filtered Internet connection that will enable them to do research and to collaborate and communicate with each other. A list of curriculum related applications in the Primary School help teachers to use the power of technology to accelerate learning.
