Technology

We recognise the enormous potential of modern technology to enhance and enrich learning, and are committed to preparing our children to be successful in a society permeated with technology.

Tanglin embraces new technology wherever it supports our mission. 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.

The use of technology to support learning is embedded across all curriculum areas from the Infants to the Sixth Form College. Beginning with the use of specialised apps to support specific skills development, as children progress through the school they learn to use an increasing range of devices and applications.

Mobile devices in particular have led to much better integration of technology into learning. Students no longer need to move out to a 'special' location to access a computer or the internet; instead they can take the device to wherever it is needed so that it can be used alongside other resources, both inside and outside the classroom.

At Tanglin, it is always the learning that comes first; the technology simply provides powerful tools which enable high quality learning to take place.

Our goal is to get as close as possible to an environment where the technology devices are as invisible and unremarkable as books, paper and pens.
