As Canadian classrooms shifted quickly to online learning in 2020, having access to reliable, affordable, and fast technology became a focal point for many parents. Laptops were how children stayed connected to teachers and classmates, learned about the wonders of science, art and math, and completed assignments on time.
And while many families are eager to see a return to in-person learning, the unpredictability of COVID-19 means that we may need to continue to learn virtually throughout 2021. Once again, technology will play a central role in keeping students connected to their curriculums.
