Digital Learning Team on the Road
- helping navigate the internet -
 
Seventeen teachers are going from school to school across the Greater Essex County District School Board to guide their colleagues and students on safe and productive internet journeys.
 
The Digital Learning Team (@14DLT on Twitter) will provide ½ day of professional development to all teachers, intended to make them more comfortable with technology and its classroom uses. All students from JK – Grade 12 will also receive ½ day of learning about being good digital citizens.
 
The program is funded through the Ontario Ministry of Education’s Technology and Learning Fund. This year’s grant is being used by the GECDSB for “staff not stuff”, since the Board has invested extensively in technology and infrastructure in recent years.
