WHAT IS TECH INTEGRATION?

Technology integration is about more than just using a computer in class. It isn't about computer science. It is about utilizing all of the tools our fast paced society has to have the best educational experience we can. It is about learning the rules of good digital citizenship. It is about creativity and art. We hope this website helps you navigate the wonderful world of technology.

BYOD AT NOVA

BYOD (or Bring Your Own Device) means that students will be permitted to bring and use personal devices, such as laptops in the classroom.

Our students are surrounded by technology on a daily basis. Most of them actively use technology to access learning both in and outside the classroom. Instead of preventing this use, our school will strive to teach students how to best utilize technology in their individual learning. In line with our mission and vision - to nurture creative and passionate learners with the skills to make positive change, students at Nova will be encouraged to use personal devices throughout the school day.

WHAT TYPE OF DEVICE?

Students will be permitted to bring and use devices with keyboard access, word processing software and web browser functionalities, such as laptops, notebooks, and tablets with a keyboard. Gaming devices with internet access are not permissible. Cell phones may be used at teacher discretion for academic purposes.
