The Pros and Cons of Technology

For better or for worse, modern technology has changed our lives, and it’s definitely here to stay. Is it always a good thing?

Swiss International School Dubai fully integrates technology into its curriculum, through innovative facilities that students may access both during and outside of class hours.
