  1. To deliver engaging lessons

  2. To provide opportunities for students to get involved in inquiry-based activities and then showcase their learning 

  3. To teach digital citizenship and on-line safety

  4. To give all students the tools they need to access the curriculum and achieve to the best of their ability

Why has the LKDSB purchased GAFE (Google Apps for Education) for all schools within our Board?
