A combined $230,000 in funding for tech-based improvements will give students access to more engaging and advanced technology

Samsung Canada is excited to announce 23 elementary and secondary schools across Canada as the winners of the Best Buy School Tech Grant program, in partnership with Samsung Canada’s Solve for Tomorrow and Google. Each school will receive grants of up to $10,000 each, or Chromebook packages, to enhance programs and to improve digital literacy, engagement, and educational advancement.

 

“In today’s continually evolving learning landscape, technology is critical to helping students connect, collaborate and thrive with their peers and educators,” said Jennifer Groh, Senior Director of Corporate Marketing and Citizenship, Samsung Canada. “We are pleased to continue our partnership with Best Buy Canada and provide students and teachers with innovative technology that will enhance their programs and boost students’ interest in STEM learning.”

 

The past two years have demonstrated firsthand just how important technology is for schools. Unfortunately, not all schools, teachers and students have access to the necessary equipment they need. With these grants, students will have access to more engaging and advanced technology to motivate them to learn and to set them up for success in their future educational endeavors.

 

“All the staff and students at Yellowquill School would like to express their gratitude to Samsung for their generous contribution towards this Chromebook package. The students at Yellowquill will develop their skills and expand their knowledge with the help of dedicated teachers and one of the world’s greatest equalizers: technology. With the harmonious amalgamation of student, teacher, and technology, rich learning experiences can flourish and the ability to meet the needs of all learners can be met. These Chromebooks will help to engage our students by bringing in more assistive technology, simulations, and inquiry into the classroom setting,” said Andrew Duykers, YQS Resource Teacher at Yellowquill School, one of the 23 winning schools.
