eLearning/Technology Enabled Learning and Teaching
At Kawartha Pine Ridge DSB, we provide students with educational opportunities to support their learning through the use of technology. We foster the growth of 21st century competencies through the use of digital tools and virtual interactions to provide increased choice and flexibility in your child’s education through online courses.
Students have the opportunity to take courses online which they can select through their Guidance Counsellor.
Registration in eLearning provides students with access to a wide variety of courses from OeLC member school boards
across Ontario. Online courses provide flexibility for students who may have conflicts in their schedules or are experiencing other challenges. Courses are developed in conjunction with the Ministry of Education and delivered by certified Ontario teachers.
