ICT

"For the first time in history, our job as educators is to prepare our children for a future that we cannot clearly describe."

-David Warlick-

Students today live in a different world. They are immersed in technology and are wired and wireless; they are multi-tasking, constantly connected and interacting with the wider global community. ICT is an acronym that stands for Information Communications Tecnology. The DSBN uses a multitude of technologies in and out of the classroom to meet the needs of today's students and adapt instruction to motivate, engage and make learning relevant.

ICT Initiatives and Plans were developed while considering:

Ontario Curriculum Expectations The DSBN Continuum of ICT Standards Marzano's high-yield instructional strategies The DSBN Strategic Plan The DSBN Operational Plan Literacy and numeracy high-yield strategies
