Investing in Educational Technology to Optimize Learning
THURSDAY, JAN. 19, 2023
lot of laptops – 2,500 to be exact – have been optimized for learning and are now making the journey across the region and into Grand Erie classrooms. From there, the possibilities are endless in terms of how they’ll be put to use to unlock imagination, inspiration and connection for learners and educators.
The purchase of additional laptops was made possible by the board’s recently revised budget for the 2022-23 school year, and the commitment to up-to-date technology aligns with strategic priorities related to learning and accessibility. It also closes the gap in terms of student-to-device ratios, ensuring students can use tech more often to personalize learning, explore interests and gain skills they’ll use throughout their school years, and beyond.
Lots of work goes on behind the scenes to make sure classrooms are ready for the future and supported in their use of tech; the Information Technology Services team had the task of imaging, tagging and adding the Grand Erie asset management system to each of the HP ProBooks with touchscreen technology before they were deployed. The team is also instrumental in keeping learning with technology safe, secure and accessible to all.
Grand Erie is in the second year of its multi-year strategic plan, and the additional investments in technology, as well as hands-on resources including books to refresh library collections, math manipulatives and literacy materials, goes a long way to realizing the vision to learn, lead and inspire.
