21st Century Learning

Educational Technology Initiative


Grand Erie District School Board is embarking on an exciting initiative that will bring more technology to the classroom to support student engagement, student learning and student achievement.

Over a period of 5 years the Board will be provide teachers and students with netbook and tablet computers and LCD projectors to use as part of their instructional practice. The Board will also provide pods of netbooks and tablet in classrooms to facilitate differentiated instruction and Universal Design for Learning (UDL).

This initiative brings together all program areas from JK – Grade 12 with our Information Technology Services department to put the focus on 21st century learning by embracing the technology that is available today.

Vision
Grand Erie will improve student engagement and achievement by embedding technology into daily teaching and learning to ensure that education is a relevant, collaborative, and interactive experience.

Student achievement is positively impacted when we embed technology into instruction and learning.
