One of the three main goals of NTL is to provide students with a “digital backpack” full of the resources they need to learn, transitioning from the finite resources of textbooks to the expansive learning options of the Internet.
Tools: Giving teachers and students the right tools to get the job done - Google Docs, Moodle, the Hub - and evaluating the need for additional tools.
Digital Content: Create a repository of digital content for staff and students to access and apply for learning.
Flexible Learning: Using digital content to provide students with greater opportunity to learn at their own time, place, path and pace.
Professional Development: Staff need time, support and training to continue the shift to digital content and tools.
Personal Devices: To leverage digital content, each student will carry a mobile device to be used for learning.
Technical Support: Additional support to maintain access to digital content and tools.
