We are a BYOD School. All students are encouraged to take part in the MGC ‘Bring Your Own Device’ to integrate their learning both inside and outside of school and to take advantage of the information and collaborative opportunities the world wide web and access to technology provides.
The device might be a laptop, a Chromebook or a tablet – any Internet-capable device with a keyboard that can assist learning. A mobile phone is not an appropriate device to be used as a learning tool in all contexts, it may supplement another device.
Students using devices are able to collaborate in solving real world problems and to develop the essential learning skills that are needed for life in the 21st Century.
We are a Google platform school. Google Classroom is our all-in-one place for teaching and learning.
Every course will have its own Google classroom which allows students to access learning from anywhere, on any device, and give them more flexibility and collaborative tools including docs, sheets, slides, forms, meets and more. It also
- Give students the ability to adjust accessibility settings so they can learn in the way that works best for them — even in multiple languages
- Keep everyone on track with student to-do and teacher to-review pages, and due dates that automatically appear on student calendars when classwork is created
- Upload coursework documents automatically as templates to give each student their own copy of an assignment when it is created
- Allows teachers to give feedback /commentary as students progress with their learning
