Our 1:World Program
BYOD is a cost-effective way to take advantage of the devices already owned by families. AIS-R has chosen iPads for our grade 3-7 students and laptops for our grade 8-12 students because of their extensive use in schools around the world, the high number of educational apps available, their availability in Riyadh and wide adoption among our current families.
This BYOD program allows the school to invest funds in needed technology infrastructure improvements such as increased Internet bandwidth, a wireless network and next generation security appliances. In addition, in schools with BYOD programs, students take more ownership over the devices, losses and damages are diminished, and students are more likely to use the devices outside of school for learning purposes.
