Bring Your Own MacBook

The International School of Phnom Penh’s 1:1 Laptop Programme for Secondary students integrates technology to support and enhance student learning, an approach which is supported by the latest research and best practices. Students need increasing access to technology in order to create, communicate and collaborate. Our programme is aligned with the IB framework that is founded on a continuum of age-appropriate skills and competencies that are taught explicitly and applied throughout all subject areas. The programme is 1:1 and students use their own MacBook at school in all of their classes. To learn more about the pedagogy and framework of ISPP's 1:1 programme, you can view this eBook.

All students enrolled at ISPP in Grades 6 - 12 are required to bring a MacBook for use at school. Parents are therefore responsible for the purchase of the MacBook and for its maintenance and insurance. ISPP recommends that all students purchase Apple Care.
