LCDS extends a special thank you to the Marriott Global Sales & Customer Care Centre in Sarnia for their generous donation of 3 gently used SMART Boards to the LCDS Learning and Development department. For anyone that is not familiar, a SMART Board is an interactive white board that helps improve learning outcomes. It combines the simplicity of a whiteboard with the power of a computer and lets you deliver dynamic lessons, write notes in digital ink and save your work – all with the simple touch of a finger.
The SMART Boards will be used to enhance the learning experience for both employees and the people supported by LCDS. It will increase interaction, collaboration, flexibility and engagement for all the participants. For many of the people in our services, literacy plays a key role in the achievement of their dreams. Literacy is the foundation for lifelong learning and an instrument of empowerment to improve one’s health, one’s income and one’s relationship with the world.
We especially want to acknowledge John Johnston, Manager of Reservation Sales for the Marriott, and former employee of LCDS, as well as Jeff Searson, Support Worker at LCDS, for initiating this incredible donation.
