Use of technology in the classroom

The KAS campus was built from the ground up with technology in mind. Our students have 1:1 devices starting as early as 3rd grade, with appropriate classroom guidance and device selection. Campus wide WiFi, hosted in Taiwan (rated one of the best connected places in the world!) provides a truly world-class experience for the technology savvy classroom. This allows faculty to make meaningful and intentional use of technology at any moment, and to take learning beyond the classroom and beyond the imagination.
