Fallowing article is taken from a weekly Cree School Board newsletter:
The use of technology in the classroom is fast becoming the norm for students around the world and if the Cree School Board wishes to ensure that our students are at the cusp of 21st century learning then we need to ensure that our students have access to the latest technology and that teachers in our Board are trained to use this technology as an integral part of their daily practice.
Luke Mettaweskum School in Nemaska and James Bay Eeyou School in Chisasibi will pilot a project whereby one classroom in each school will be supplied with iPads for each student. Teachers of these classes will be trained in the daily use of these tablets as pedagogical tools. In time, it is expected that more and more of our schools will be similarly equipped and all teachers will be trained to use computers in the classroom.
And I am honored to say that I am one of the two teachers who is chosen to pilot the project.
