Use of technology in the classroom

Where chalkboards and textbooks once held sway, now video collaboration, interactive whiteboards and MacBooks (moving towards iPads now, in fact) are the order of the day. Nexus sees huge potential in these technologies and embraces IT as a powerful tool for the kind of personalised learning that not only allows learners immediate and direct access to information but also fosters communication and debate, and more importantly provides a mechanism for recording and tracking achievements.

Nexus has a 1:1 laptop programme which aids our Inquiry Learning Programme. It allows learners to take charge of their learning as well as easy access to digital content, educational software, and digital authoring tools.
