Apple Distinguished School
SINCE 2019 - 2021
In 2011, Madrasah Alsagoff Al-Arabiah embarked on a 1:1 iPad programme. We started off by purchasing 300 iPads for whole-school usage. Next, we upgraded our Computer Laboratory, turning it into a Software Development Centre for students who can learn how to design and create Arabic Textbooks and other learning materials for the school. In 2016, we made it compulsory for every student to buy their own iPads as their Personal Learning Device. Now we are in the advanced phase of our program implementation which is to include coding into our curriculum and to ensure that teachers are well-equipped with the necessary ICT skills and are kept abreast of the latest updates in the use of technology in education, they are required to attend at least two to three ICT related courses per year.
Madrasah Alsagoff has been given this important recognition because it strives to be a hub for innovation, leadership, and academic achievement through the extensive use of technology. We utilize this technology to surpass educational objectives in creative and effective ways, enhancing students’ abilities, teamwork, and school spirit. This is carried out in a deliberate and organized manner, involving careful planning, implementation, and continuous feedback. The Apple devices allow students to showcase and hone their skills and knowledge with our teachers’ competent guidance. Most importantly, these devices contribute to a learning environment that is exciting, full of new ideas to explore, and the promise of a better future for the school and our students.
