Welcome to the Grand Erie Ed Tech Website

The Ed Tech Team supports the Grand Erie community around learning and teaching with technology to support the Global Competencies as aligned with the 21st Century Competencies document.

We provide support to staff through professional learning opportunities customized to reach learners where they are in their technology understanding. We support student learning by working collaboratively with staff and students to build learning activities that highlight technology tools that can be used to enhance students understanding of the curriculum both in the classroom and in virtual spaces.

The Information Technology Team provides devices in every classroom including a teacher device, student devices, a device storage unit, a projector, a projection surface, and access to WiFi.

The Microsoft Global Learning Connection will happen on November 5-6, 2019. An estimated half-a-million students from over 110 countries will connect and travel “virtual miles” to speak with guest speakers, experience a new culture, sing a song, go on virtual field trips and learn from other students, educators and experts from around the world. It’s the same great event but with more opportunities to make connections. Our goal is to travel over 17 million virtual miles—together we’ll achieve this via Skype, Teams and Flipgrid.
