ASB is a leading educational institution globally in the use of Information Technology. In our increasingly virtual world, including times of wholly virtual learning and other times of hybrid learning, we understand the importance of technology in enabling innovative teaching and learning practices.

Our technology infrastructure provides extraordinary opportunities to enhance student learning with a variety of technology tools and services, and we continually strive to innovate through technology to help facilitate a world-leading educational platform for our entire community.

Technology also provides a channel for ASB to realize our Vision that ASB learners will be:

  • Intrinsically motivated
  • Adaptable and resilient
  • Self-aware
  • Empathetic
  • Reflective.

Belief statements that guide us towards realizing our vision:

  • Teachers are most effective when they help students learn through interactive rich-media experiences.
  • Our lifelong learning model should empower the students to thrive in an increasingly digital world.
  • Teachers should help parents connect formal and informal uses of technology. It enables the parents to play a major role in their children's education.
  • Every stakeholder of a learning community has the power to become a leader and effect positive change.
  • We are a responsible learning community in an evolving digital world. We understand the social, ethical, and legal issues and accordingly model our responsibilities.

In 2021, it is more important than ever to continually innovate with technology, so we can ensure that all teaching modes (virtual synchronous, virtual asynchronous, hybrid, in-person) are delivered in the most engaging and effective way. In our world, technology offers more than just a platform to interact and share information.

Having been a laptop school for 20 years (since 2001), we understand that technology is an extension of our classrooms, and we are constantly adapting to new technologies so that we can continue to foster collaboration, inquiry, creativity, and academic achievement in our students. We know that integrating technology into education helps our students develop critical thinking skills and manage complexity. We embrace new technology, including mobile devices, wearable technologies, and innovations such as 3D printers.

Our Remarkable Educators empower students to act safely, participate ethically and think critically in their digital lives. Our curriculum integrates digital life practices throughout the grade levels. We address cyber-bullying, website accuracy evaluation, sources citation, and safe online behavior. We apply age-appropriate contexts to help students practice learning in real life. ASB has a Responsible Use Policy across all School divisions.
