The deployment of technology for the classes (iPad and TBI) is going well at the Sorel-Tracy School Board. This is what has emerged recently in various media. Overview.
Last year, the Sorel-Tracy School Board initiated an important shift. From a management perspective, it looks like everything is going pretty well!
IPads for all students ...
Last year, the CS conducted a pilot project by providing students in four classes at Bernard-Gariépy high school with iPad tablets. According to a survey conducted by the school board, the results of which are detailed here, “nearly 80% of students and 64% of teachers, who were part of the pilot project, appreciated their experience. »Following this success (although it will take a little work to rally more teachers), the CS plans to equip all its primary and secondary students within 5 years. In fact, 400 tablets should be acquired this year alone.
The management thus hopes to increase the motivation of young people towards their studies and to save on the costs of reproduction, printing and purchase of books.
… And IWBs for all classes!
An article in the regional weeklies of Montérégie indicated, last Friday, that "the integration of interactive whiteboards in the classes of the CS of Sorel-Tracy, a request required by the government of Quebec last year for all its primary schools and secondary, is done without problem compared to elsewhere in Quebec. "
The RÉCIT remains on the lookout and makes sure to advise teachers on the most appropriate technologies for their projects.
