Devices and Technology in the Classroom
Acceptable Use Policy and iPad Student Pledge
At St. Paul, we believe that all students should have access to technology when they act in ways that are safe, responsible, legal, and ethical. To keep our students digitally safe, we require every student to read and sign the SPASH iPad Student pledge (K-2) or the SPASH Acceptable Use Policy for Technology (grades 3-12). By doing so, students pledge to abide by the rules and guidelines that govern the use of SPASH online communication and electronic resources. Kindly support or check-in with your child(ren) to ensure they have signed the iPad Pledge or AUP if they haven’t done so already.
BYOD – Bring Your Own Device (Grades 6 to 12 only)
We require each Middle and High Schooler to bring their own approved device for school. This is a very important part of their day-to-day life, as we rely on technology to facilitate learning. Please review the school’s minimum BYOD requirements here or on our website. Do not hesitate to contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions.
IT Support / Help Desk
In order to best serve our community, we encourage our students to put in a help ticket by simply sending an email to email@example.com or by visiting the IT office in room B103 for assistance. We are here to guide and to fulfill their tech needs, so please encourage them to ask questions (large or small). Thank you and we look forward to a great year together.
Greetings! I’m proud to enter my second year as Technology Director at St. Paul. Living and working in Hanoi marks my family’s 3rd continent at international schools; coming previously from 5 years in Atlanta after 7 years in Accra. As a lifelong learner, I have expertise in Educational Databases & Systems Management and a passion for assisting teachers in finding the best tech tools to meet their needs.
I am an Advance Google Certified Educator with a Computer Science background and I also love to work with children. I seek the newest trends in educational technology and strongly believe that technology plays a fundamental role in modern education. At St. Paul I take pride in problem-solving, enhancing the user experience, and ensuring cyber-security fundamentally. I also prioritize, facilitate and maintain a digitally safe environment for our community.
Above all, I am most at peace when I can be of help to others. As Technology Director, I am ever-ready to consult, to brainstorm, and to assist with all things tech- from the most petite to the profoundly complex. Come visit!
