Transforming How We Learn And Work
Technology Plan
Fall 2023 – Fall 2027

Business and Learning Technology’s Vision:
To create a seamless and innovative technological experience.

Business and Learning Technology’s Mission:
We care about the success of our students, so we strive to provide and support a learning and technical environment that is innovative, safe and accessible for the entire OCDSB community.

This renewed version of the Business and Learning Technology Plan builds on the success of the previous plan and will determine our journey for the next four years (2023-2027). It aligns with the OCDSB’s 2023-2027 Strategic Plan. Many different groups were engaged to ensure a diversity of voices, to build on the strengths of our District and to reflect the needs in our school communities. This plan was developed with three main themes: Learning, Seamless and Innovative Technologies, and Privacy and Security. Each theme includes measurable goals to be achieved by Fall 2027 with desired outcomes for students, staff, and the system.

Learning   Seamless and Innovative Technologies
Privacy and Security    Why transform how we learn and work?

Digital transformation grows the knowledge, skills, and abilities of individuals through digital connections and collaboration. It modifies processes and practices of the organization for improved outcomes. We will leverage digital technologies to:

  • increase students’ level of digital fluency;
  • help educators deepen the learning experience;
  • improve student mental health support and resources;
  • make business processes and workflows more efficient and effective; and
  • support culture and experiences that meet the diverse needs of our students and families.

Every year, a detailed plan will be co-created with departments and staff to guide the direction of Business and Learning Technologies in each of the three themes. Projects will be monitored by team managers and progress will be shared twice a year. Key performance indicators, such as lead and lag measures, will be used to monitor progress, which will inform the department’s plans for the subsequent year.

Strategies to Support the Achievement of the Three Goals:

  • Professional learning and training to assist staff in building their capacity to achieve the desired outcomes in each area of the plan.
  • Foster the conditions to support staff in having an open learning stance to use technology in creative and innovative ways.
  • Collaborate with departments to ensure alignment of tools and processes across the District.
  • Develop a communication plan to ensure all stakeholders are aware of the technology plan Transforming How We Learn and Work, and the goals within.
  • Continue to align the work of Transforming How We Learn and Work with the OCDSB’s 2023-2027 Strategic Plan.
  • Create an implementation and monitoring process to ensure Transforming How We Learn and Work is effectively implemented and monitored for impact.

Our digital transformation will support Social Responsibility.

We will continue to: 

  • use equipment until it is no longer supported, or at end of life;
  • dispose of equipment in an eco-friendly manner; and
  • reduce our reliance on print-based materials.
