For over a decade, the Information Economy Initiative (IEI) and the Information Economy Initiative—Extended (IEI—E) have helped provide classrooms and learning spaces in Nova Scotia public schools with computers, peripherals, software, technical support, and professional development. Typically, each year the IEI-E focuses on a specific grade level.
In the Halifax Regional School Board a variety of professional development opportunities in technology integration have been developed in collaboration with school staff. These centralized and school based approaches facilitate technology integration professional development based on each school’s Plan for Improvement and individual needs.
Under the IEI-E tab above are links to details on recent year’s rollout. When details about the upcoming year’s plans are confirmed, they will be added.
