Digital Learning Tools

At the DSBN, we offer every student access to a variety of digital learning tools that are designed to support and enhance their learning. These digital learning tools have been carefully selected based on their educational value as well as their compatibility with the current Ontario curriculum:

What is G Suite for Education?

What is Microsoft 365?

What is Brightspace?

What is Follett Destiny?

What is DSBN Medianet?

The use of all DSBN technology resources is governed by policy  D-01: Digital Technology Use by Students and D-06: Electronic Learning.

Some digital learning tools require that the DSBN share limited personal information such as the student’s name and school email address for the purpose of creating an account to use the tool or service, and for children twelve (12) and under, pursuant to the American Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, American digital learning tools that might be utilized by the DSBN to support and enhance learning require that parents or guardians provide their consent prior to the child’s personal information being shared. Any content created in and/or stored in a district provided digital learning tool remains the property of DSBN. Personal information (e.g., name and email address) is used and shared by the DSBN for the above-noted purposes under the authority of subsection 11(3) and section 20 of the Ontario Regulation 298, R.R.O Education Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.E.2.  The information is retained in accordance with the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. M. 56.

If your question is not answered by the resources on this page, please contact your school principal.

In addition to the Digital Learning Tools listed above, there are many additional unique educational software applications geared to specific age groups or specific school subjects that may be utilized in schools.
