*Note: 4/5 English (MRE) represents the 25 Laptops implemented in 2005-06. This is working under the
assumption these students will move up one grade with their current laptops.
*Note: The cost of 30 laptops is $44,130.00. To date we have deployed one set of 25 laptops. Each
deployment is based on 3 - 5 replacements and a teacher laptop.
Example: If we require 30 student laptops then we need 35 computers for the replacement laptops and
teacher laptop.
*Note: The additional cost of a Smartboard installation is $6,753.00 which includes the installation cost.

Describe how each of the following essential
components will be addressed:
Provision of professional development aligned with best
practice.
Lakeland has maintained 2 full time ICT Support Teacher positions for the last three years. The mandate for these
positions has been to develop a school specific ICT scope and sequence based on the current provincial curriculum,
staffing skill sets, hardware and software in each individual school. The schools now have a curriculum planning document
that can be used to guide the teachers implementation of ICT at the various grade levels and subjects areas. The scope
and sequence has also provide the means to identify and address specific training requirements of the instructional staff.
The ICT Support Staff are now in the process of working with school administration to coordinate planning and
implementation professional development for the teachers throughout the district. The teachers across the district have
also participated in ASIS projects focusing on Early Literacy, Moral Intelligence, Brain-based Learning, Differentiated
Instructional Techniques and Assessment of Learning. The ICT support staff focus on implementing technology within the
classroom to meet the ICT curriculum outcomes but within context of instructional strategies being implemented across
the district over the last 4 years.
