Technology


 

We’re living in a fantastic new age—a fascinating but also challenging age. This is a time where the world is advancing at a rate that we can barely keep up. In our present time, powerful technologies and information systems have precipitated all walks of life. Facts are becoming obsolete faster now, while knowledge built on these facts becomes a lot less durable and the technologies currently flooding the market will be superseded within a relatively short period of time.

This is altering the very fabric of our society, and affecting the way we work, play, communicate, how we learn, and what's important for us to know. At Rostrevor, we understand this and we respond to it by ensuring that we provide students and teachers with access to the necessary resources (including training, hardware and software). We evaluate our operations, curriculum, pedagogy and assessment models in an attempt to meet the challenges ahead. This is to ensure that students are provided with every opportunity to develop the skills and capabilities for a very different world.

At Rostrevor we understand that the technology is just a tool and it is the teaching and learning that needs to respond to the challenges that lie ahead. Students will need a whole new set of skills, vastly different from what we needed to help us succeed. We also understand that we need to continue to re-evaluate current instructional and assessment methods, policies relevant to technologies and their use, and to provide guidance in how to make change a beneficial thing for both student and teacher.
