A Vision for Learning and Teaching in a Digital Age

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

February 2013: OPSBA's new paper - the follow-up to our "What If" document - has just been launched. "A Vision for Learning and Teaching in a Digital Age" is a collaboration of OPSBA trustees from our Education Program Work Team and many committed staff from a broad range of school boards in the province. Trustee leadership was provided by Loralea Carruthers and Marty Fairbairn.

Many of Ontario's public schools harness information technology as a tool for expanding learning opportunities and supporting student engagement. What we are missing in Ontario is a provincial vision that can drive learning and teaching technology and ensure it is integrated into the learning experience in ways that will offer our students the best possible education in this digital age. Ontario is behind other jurisdictions in articulating this kind of leadership and it is time to move.
