All of the LINC/ESL & FSL classes will use the Google Classroom platform, for the time being.  All learners will get their own HDSB email account with access to HDSB cloud storage and a great choice of CLB-graded learning materials.  All synchronous learning will occur through Google Meet. Technology assistance will be provided initially and, as needed, in an ongoing manner.
