This Academy will explain BC’s new K-12 Applied Design, Skills, and Technologies (ADST) Curriculum and how we’ll be implementing it at the Westside Schools.

You’ll learn about some exciting technology-related plans for next year. And you’ll leave this session with a better understanding of how you can support your children in using new technologies as a learning tools and how to use the ADST Curricular Competencies in activities at home.
