  • BYOD for Learning

    With the resurfacing of COVID in our region and changes in
    Alert Levels causing students to continue their learning from home, having a
    reliable device at home to access online learning, remain connected with
    teachers, and receive feedback about their work makes 
    BYOD more essential than
    ever.
