Technology

Here at Dubai Heights Academy, we are technologically creative. We strive to incorporate a multitude of different types of technology into our learning and believe that balance is key when it comes to traditional learning and technology. We recognise that staff competence and confidence is an essential element to successful technology integration and ‘edutech’ training is central to our evolving digital strategy.

Computing is taught as a discrete subject from Year 1 and our partnership with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has enabled our students to explore the world of Artificial Intelligence.

We understand that technology is a key element of education and are committed to helping our students become lifelong learners who are innovative and confident users of technology. We have integrated the use of technology into our teaching and learning and this has helped us to improve levels of attainment and engagement across all subject areas and was recognised as a strength of the school in our recent KHDA inspection. Classrooms are equipped with large touchscreen displays which further develop classroom collaboration and interactivity and we have a Chromebook BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) programme for students from Year 3 upwards, further supporting and leveraging our use of online platforms such as Seesaw and Google Workplace for Education. Our students in FS1 to Year 2 have the option to bring their own tablet in addition to having access to school devices.

The combination of resources and innovative teaching methods allows technology to permeate every aspect of education and facilitate dynamic lessons. Teachers engage students with multimedia presentations and collaborative activities. Additionally, students utilise technology to access digital textbooks, educational apps, and online resources, fostering personalised learning experiences tailored to their individual needs and interests.
