At Tanglin we recognise the enormous potential of modern technology to enhance and enrich learning. We are also committed to preparing our students to be successful in a society permeated with technology. These principles are at the heart of our vision statement for the use of technology in the School:
Tanglin embraces new technology wherever it supports our mission. Staff are confident users of technology and are encouraged to be innovative. Students use technology to inquire, communicate and safely take risks. When they move on from Tanglin, they are confident users of current technology in a range of contexts, understanding the benefits, limitations and risks associated with its use.
In the Sixth Form, the use of technology to support learning is seen as both natural and essential. In addition to the usual classroom technology, all students are expected to have their own notebook computer or laptop which they use at home and school. They are encouraged to make choices about how they use the technology to help them find, process, evaluate and present information, and to stay organised.
