EdTech Student Crews (ESC) began in 2015/16 with around 10 schools, grew to around 20 schools in 2016/17 and is expanding to around 35 schools in 2017/18. There are approximately 200 students across the Board developing the knowledge and understanding of Educational Technologies enabling them to better support their school communities.
ESC Crews attend training with the Ed Tech Team and the hone their skills by completing activities and modules in the VLE's “Student Learning Corner” (Grand Erie’s Virtual Learning Environment). Then they support both staff and students in their schools with the use of digital tools that support learning and teaching while promoting the 21stCentury Competencies.
