At UWC Thailand, we strive to be a transformative learning community that uses technology, where appropriate, as a tool to amplify learning. Effective use of technology across UWC Thailand allows students to redefine how they learn and how they connect with the world.
UWC Thailand students are empowered through the use of technology to build connections; take ownership of, and actively engage with, their own learning; collaborate and seek feedback from a global audience while continuously reflecting on their individual responsibilities in how and why they use technology.
Technology is integrated throughout the learning ethos of the school. Students are encouraged to explore technological mediums to enhance their learning and to express themselves to support the UWC Mission of promoting Peace and Sustainability and the UWC Thailand motto of having a Balanced Mind, Good Heart and Strong Body. As an IB school with a robust activities programme, UWC Thailand also offers a number of activities for students to explore after school, including videography, photography, coding and robotics.
In an increasingly interconnected world, the importance of responsible digital citizenship is fundamental to the well-being of students.
We are committed to giving support and guidance for our community on how to develop their digital footprint appropriately and responsibly. UWC Thailand teaches digital citizenship using the frameworks developed by Common Sense Media.
Common Sense describes itself as the leading independent nonprofit organisation dedicated to helping kids thrive in a world of media and technology. It empower parents, teachers, and policymakers by providing unbiased information, trusted advice, and innovative tools to help harness the power of media and technology as a positive force in all kids’ lives.
