Sudbury Catholic District School Board Celebrates Technology

June 25, 2007 - Families are cordially invited to attend the Sudbury Catholic District School Board’s Celebrating Technology presentation on Wednesday, June 27, 2007 (7:00 p.m.) at St. Charles College, 1940 Hawthorne Drive, Sudbury. The evening will feature the authentic works of the Board’s Grade 7 and 8 students and will demonstrate how student engagement contributes to the creation of a wide variety of wireless laptop projects; I-Movies, podcasts, interpretations of creative poetry, and historical events.


In its continued commitment to student success, the Sudbury Catholic District School Board has developed strong expertise in the use of technology as a resource for improving student achievement. “Laptops have become a tool to learn with and not solely a tool to learn from,” states Paula Peroni, Sudbury Catholic District School Board Chair. “Over the last several years the Board has committed itself to the expansion of the wireless laptop program into our Grade 7 and 8 curriculum. Toward that end, in June 2006, our Board purchased eleven hundred wireless laptop computers or Macbooks as they are commonly referred to for every grade 7 and 8 student in our system. We have seen first hand the significant benefits of using grade-wide one on one laptop programming and we are thrilled that the Sudbury Catholic District School Board in partnership with Apple Canada was the first board in Ontario to champion a new innovative and successful way of delivering education to its grade 7 and 8 students.”


According to Peroni, the wireless laptop program has had a dramatic impact on student learning and student achievement. The reason for this improvement can be directly attributed to the fact that students are actively engaged by technology which translates into fewer behavioural problems, better attendance, punctuality, and more time for individualized learning. This evening is dedicated to showcasing the creative talents of the Board’s students as they embrace the technology they will be using in their upcoming careers.
