Welcome to the Supporting Technology Wiki!
This wiki is designed to offer teachers some ideas of how they can integrate technology into their own classrooms. Teachers and coaches from the Sun West School Division have been working on units related to the use of technology in our schools and are sharing these ideas and lessons through this wiki.
Please feel free to join this wiki if you have an idea, lesson, activity, link, etc., to add to our collection. Membership also allows you to receive email notification of wiki updates.
