School District Adopts Teacher-Led IT Strategy to Support Leading-Edge Learning
Calgary Catholic School District (CCSD) recently did an about-face in its approach to technology. Instead of maintaining a multimillion-dollar datacenter and forcing top-down standards, it opted to let teachers lead in deciding which devices and software to use in classrooms. The district is using Microsoft Office 365 as a key enabler in its strategic shift to flexible, teacher-driven IT services that is reliable, secure and supportive of individualized learning. It's also saving U.S. 800,000 dollar a year with Office 365.
