SCDSB Launches New Wireless Program “Learning With Laptops - One to One Grade 9 Math"

February 17, 2005 - Students, parents, principals, teachers, trustees and all board staff were cordially invited to attend the official launch of the Sudbury Catholic District School Board’s new Learning With Laptops-One to One Grade 9 Math program using Apple wireless ibooks for all of its secondary schools recently at the St. Benedict Catholic Secondary School Library.

The introduction of the wireless laptops at the secondary level builds on the success of the Learning With Laptops program that the Board introduced into six of its elementary schools last year. The mathematics-based program allows students to conceptualize the abstracts of mathematics and continues to integrate technology into the classroom setting. 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 Rossella Bagnato, Academic Superintendent of Education for the Sudbury Catholic District School Board. “The Board is committed to the expansion of the wireless laptop program into each of our secondary schools. Every Grade 9 student will have access to a wireless laptop computer supported by a strong professional development plan that will assist staff in understanding programs and strategies associated with laptops,” concludes Bagnato.

Paula Peroni, Chair of the Sudbury Catholic District School Board, will outline the scope of the new wireless program and its impact on students. Rossella Bagnato, the Board’s Academic Superintendent of Education will provide details on how the “Learning With Laptops-One to One Grade 9 Math” program will be integrated with the math curriculum and discuss the goals for improving student achievement. The morning events will also include demonstrations by students on the laptops with Robert Kennedy, Education Development Manager from Apple Canada.

An agenda is available online. For more information please contact, Rossella Bagnato, Academic Superintendent of Education, Sudbury Catholic District School Board, ph. 673-5620 ext: 300.
