Students in the TDSB have free access to a variety of digital tools to support their learning in French and in English. Students can access all of these tools anywhere where there is an internet connection by using their TDSB account.
TDSB Virtual Library
The TDSB Virtual Library provides students from K-12 with tools for online research, ebooks, videos, databases and more. All students have access to the tools from home, school or another location by logging in through their AW accounts. Each year, the school librarian sends home a "learnmark" with any necessary username and passwords that may be requested for some tools.
Some tools for French include Idéllo for videos, Universalis Junior, Big Timber Media, and TFO/MiniTFO.
Google Apps for Education
All students from Grades 1-12 in the TDSB have G-Suite accounts. Students can change the language to French within each app. These apps foster students' global competencies and the skills that are needed of 21st century learners, such as collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, global citizenship, and communication. To access these tools, students must log in to Google Chrome using their TDSB account.
