TechFest 2019 will take place on April 5, 2019. It is designed to provide professional development for all educators in the areas of embedding technology and implementing UDL at the classroom and school level.

Educator employee groups are invited to participate in this professional development event. Secretaries and custodians are to report to their school sites on April 5th. TechFest 2019 participants will hear from two keynote speakers who will describe their UDL journey, including how embedding technology furthered learning opportunities for students.
In addition, a variety of presenters, many of whom are ALCDSB educators, have volunteered their time to similarly share their learning and experiences in one-hour workshops. Two sites will be hosting this event: Holy Cross Catholic Secondary School (Kingston) and Nicholson Catholic College (Belleville).
