Technology for Learning

Technology is at the core of the school library program. Our learning spaces are both virtual and physical, as are our resources. We understand the huge potential to use technology to leverage learning in our collaborative and inquiry-based program.


Two models – model of the professional – TPACK, model of the learning task – SAMR.

teacher use of tech – confidence, etc. Professional learning – collaboration – teacher inquiry.
