How much homework will be given to students?

Will students be using technology in classroom? If Yes, what gadgets will they use and will they be provided by school?

At Northstar we consider technology to be a powerful tool that can be used to support student learning. But we recognize that technology is not a pedagogy in itself, and that if not used with due care, it can distract learners rather than help them. At Northstar we always think about the learning goals first and then how technology may or may not support these. This way we make sure only to use technology when it makes sense as a way to enhance student learning.

The Northstar School has partnered with Google to offer all Google services to our students and staff. We follow a BYOD model from grade 5 onwards. We are also device agnostic. We encourage blended learning and flipped model using a variety of resources.
