Re-imagining Your School Library as a Hub for Technology-Rich Personal Learning

Version 1

    Presented by Phil Dawes, Superintendent & Sue Neilson, Principal, Elementary/Secondary Upper Canada District School Board 


    Aug. 17 PM Session -- Salon 2

Once the move from library to learning commons is initiated, leaders are better positioned to ask “is our digital strategy driving educational system change, or is educational system change driving our digital strategy?"
