Thank-you to all who attended the parent information sessions regarding the 1-to-1 technology initiative that we are piloting in the 2012/2013 school year in the grade 4 and 9 learning community classrooms. We appreciated the interest shown and the great conversation we had at these sessions.
As discussed at these sessions, the 1-to-1 technology initiative is to provide access to a laptop for all of our students in every class to be used as a tool to enhance and extend learning when appropriate. The mission of this initiative is:
“Our students will innovate, collaborate, and be highly motivated about their learning.”
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.
As a result of the feedback we have received, and as part of the planning and preparation process, we have created a 1-to-1 Technology Frequently Asked Questions document. If you have any additional questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the office.
