BRING YOUR OWN DEVICE (BYOD) at NOVA
BYOD means that students are allowed to bring and use their personal devices, such as laptops or tablets into 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 neglecting technology use and its benefits, our school strives 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 are encouraged to use personal devices throughout the school day, enhancing their learning capabilities.
