Tech for Teaching
When the world shut down from the pandemic, it became remarkably clear that technology is essential to education today more than ever.
Halifax Christian Academy successfully pivoted to e-learning through HCA@Home and our teachers quickly learned to incorporate more digital resources in their teaching. This has been an amazing blessing to our students.
Now that we are (thankfully) back on campus, HCA wants to allow our teachers to continue to bless our students, and is thus asking for your financial support to help us reach our goal of replacing tired and obsolete equipment with updated systems and additional technology to support the staff and students of HCA.
All donors will receive a 2020 charitable tax receipt, and funds will be deployed to purchase laptops, smart TVs, chromebooks, routers, and additional tools to expand our teaching capabilities.
Recently HCA made a modest request to the provincial government for 35 chromebooks (~$10,000) from the $40+ million in federal funding. Unfortunately our request was denied. As a community, we hope to work together to bridge the gap and help ensure that our students and staff have equal opportunities in learning through today’s modern technological landscape.
