School Board Unveils New Technology Learning Plan

The Lambton Kent District School Board has unveiled a new Technology Enriched Learning Plan.

One of the highlights will see every grade seven student at the board receive an I-pad mini next September.

Director of Education Jim Costello says data shows that the majority of people are now using mobile devices instead of desktop computers.

Costello says the plan also calls for significant increases in staff professional development.

The full plan is available at the boards website at www.lkdsb.net
