A Vision for Learning and Teaching in a Digital Age

OPSBA’s paper A Vision for Learning and Teaching in a Digital Age – the follow-up to our “What If” document – was released in February 2013. The document 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 of the York Region DSB and Marty Fairbairn of the Upper Grand DSB.

Desired Outcome:

Identification of the issues affecting the use of technology in learning and teaching including the widespread use of e-textbooks and the development of strategies to increase the preparedness of the school system to embrace advances in technology.
