At FJWSS, we recognize that bringing technology into the classroom is a key step to preparing students for success with post-secondary and career opportunities.

To this end, we have brought Chromebooks into the classrooms, we have been developing Google Apps for Education programming, and we are now exploring ways to introduce students to robotics and coding in math.

Thanks to generous funding from Omushkego Education, we have four EV3 robot kits in our school. Using them, our students are learning coding and programming at the same that they explore mathematical concepts like measurement and linear relationships.
