SETdirect is a SET-BC provincial initiative designed to provide BC school district teams with access to simple technology kits that support and encourage social inclusion for students with complex needs.

District teams are able to request an allocated number of social inclusion kits that will meet their students’ needs and educational program goals. SETdirect requests are coordinated through our SET-BC District Partners. To see what kits were available previously, visit the SETdirect 2016-2017 area.

Applications for SETdirect 2017-2018 will be available in October 2017.

Complex Needs Technology Project

This project is designed to build district capacity to trial and assess technology solutions for complex needs students. CNTP requests are coordinated through our SET-BC District Partners.

Retired Inventory Program

Every year, SET-BC retires those technologies that have been part of the provincial loan bank which are no longer going to be loaned out for student or classroom use. Retired Inventory Program requests are coordinated through BC school district specialists and our SET-BC District Partners. To see what is currently available, please visit our Retired Inventory Program area.

Applications for the Retired Inventory Program 2017-2018 can be made from September 15th to May 15th.

Synergy Projects

SET-BC Synergy Projects are provincially coordinated technology projects designed for educators across British Columbia who are interested in exploring and sharing the potential for innovative technology to support student access to the BC Curriculum.

Projects may have a district, classroom or students focus. The number and type of Synergy projects available each year vary depending on Ministry of Education initiatives, SET-BC staffing, and annual program funding. To see what classroom-based Synergy projects were supported in previous years, please visit our Classroom Technology Projects area.

Applications for Synergy Projects will be available in April and May 2018.
