Welcome to our Riverside technology support site. We believe it is essential to teach our students the skills necessary to use and interact with technology ethically, competently, and thoughtfully. Digital skills and fluencies (information, creativity, media, solution, and collaboration) are essential for all students. Our goal is to develop learners who will thrive in this changing world so they will build the capacity to design, innovate, inquire, think differently, collaborate effectively, communicate eloquently, and act ethically. A digital environment enables us to teach students in ways that are more relevant, engaging, personal and meaningful.
To ensure the success of our digital program,
Riverside has put in place extensive infrastructure to support students and staff. Technology support is available every block in the library. If you need support or have any questions, please email: 132-LIF@sd43.bc.ca
