Digital Learning

Doha College is a 1:1 iPad school, and all students from years 3 to 13 bring their device to school every day. Technology is fully integrated into teaching and learning; and students at Doha College show a high degree of digital literacy from an early age.

 

 

 

 

When applying digital learning tools within the curriculum, teachers are encouraged to follow the school’s model for digital learning. This provides a framework for purposeful use of technology in eight distinct capacities for learning, whilst supporting our whole school philosophy of high-performance learning.

Independent Enquirers

Students use digital learning devices to work independently as part of a research or enquiry-based activity.

Collaborative Participants

Students use digital learning devices to work with each other, or with their teacher, to achieve a common goal.

Engaged Learners

Digital learning devices are used to further engage and engross students in the learning process.

Responsible Users

Students are aware of their role in ensuring that their device is used responsibly within the school community.

Organised Scholars

Key digital learning achievements at Doha College

DC student completes Stanford Artificial Intelligence For All programme

DC student completes Stanford Artificial Intelligence For All programme

Eleonora Carta (Y11) completed the Stanford summer school AI4All (Artificial Intelligence for All) - a three-week programme where participants engaged with professionals in the field to learn about cutting-edge ideas, such as how AI can be applied in medicine, disaster response, and combatting poverty. To be accepted on the course, Eleanora had to solve some very difficult computer science problems - a measure of how highly coveted this programme is, aside from the global prestige of Stanford University!
