This has informed Aoba’s strong commitment to ensuring technology remains a core component of every student’s learning journey.
Blended and Online Learning
Combining innovative teaching practices and a suite of cutting edge technology tools, the learning experience at Aoba is characterised by seamless interaction across both virtual and in-person environments and a focus on student self agency.
In addition to embedded technology tools and support provided by the school, students also have the opportunity to engage in focused study of a number of technology subjects including Computer Science, Digital Design, Robotics, and more, with the goal of empowering them with the technology skills and concepts that will help them thrive in the modern world.
All Aoba students from Grade 01 onwards use their own iPad or MacBook to learn at school and at home. Our BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) program mirrors the kind of technology use found in real-world academic and professional environments all over the world and helps students to naturally acquire technological fluency throughout the course of their studies at Aoba.
