Use of technology in the classroom

WYA has incorporated state-of-the-art 3D technology including 3D projectors, green screens, use of Mobile & Tablet devices and new software technology into the curriculum to help students better understand abstract ideas. Using the technology, they can visualise, inspect, and decipher study materials right in front of them, which is a far more effective way to retain knowledge than transcribing a lecture.
