We are very excited to see the positive impact this will have on our students’ learning and the amazing learning opportunities this will create as we continue to move forward with our Technology Innovation Plan. In case you were not able to attend, this 1-to-1 Technology Learning Communities presentation was given at these parent information sessions.
