  • This Wordle example is intended to highlight that as in many of the programs, undertakings or initiatives that we do, TRC is not just about technology—providing technical infrastructure and support are critical to project success, professional learning for the facilitators and teachers, ongoing support from their facilitator/trainer, leadership and support provided by TRC school leaders, community support, parent engagement, Like a symphony, there are a bunch of sections performing in concert—and it is more complex than 1 single solo part! When everything comes together, it is definitely a masterpiece!
