Dawn Danko Answer’s Questions About Technology In The Classroom

Dear Friends in Ward 7:

In 2014 the Public School Board officially endorsed the promotion of 21st century learning skills.

However, all too often this simply means allowing students access to mobile phones during class time and replacing textbooks with iPads.

In the interview below, I share my own ideas about the role of technology in the classroom and the direction I would take the Board if elected trustee on October 27th, 2014.

Please leave me a message in the comments, I would really appreciate your input!

Sincerely,

Dawn Danko
