The Sudbury Catholic District School Board hosted a “Learning With|
Laptops” workshop at the Catholic Education Centre recently to
demonstrate the integral role that the laptops play in student
learning. Zandra Zubac, Director of Education for the Sudbury Catholic District School Board, presented an over view of the project while Rossella Bagnato, Academic Superintendent of Education made reference to the “Learning With Laptops” program in relation to curriculum. The day’s events also included demonstrations by students on the wireless laptops.
“Learning With Laptops” brings the latest wireless technology to a wide range of students from Kindergarten to Grade 8 in six of the Board’s Catholic schools. The Wireless Writing Program is a classroom-based program of technology integration. As part of its commitment to student success, the SCDSB has developed strong expertise in the use of technology as a tool for improving student achievement.
