FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Digital Human Library and Landor Technology Inc. Announce Sponsorship for Prairie Rose Public Schools

Digital Human Library (dHL) and Landor Technology are proud to announce a new sponsorship that will provide every teacher and student in the Prairie Rose School Division with access to Digital Human Library’s resources for the next two years. 

“We are excited and grateful to be collaborating with Landor Technology who has donated $10,000 to Prairie Rose School Division to support this new initiative” explains Leigh Cassell, CEO and Founder of Digital Human Library. “The goal of the sponsorship is to provide proactive solutions to school districts that ensure teachers and students have access to modern experiential learning services that prepare students for the future workforce. With over a decade of ongoing cuts to public education, school districts can no longer afford the kinds of experiential learning services that students need to become more personally and professionally successful, economically productive, and actively engaged global citizens. Together we are supporting public education, and preparing our future workforce for success today, and in the future” says Cassell. 

“After my first meeting with Leigh, and feeling the passion she had for this amazing offering, I knew this was something that Landor wanted to support” says Ashley Dorrian, CEO at Landor Technology. Many of the challenges students are facing today include a lack of exposure to career pathways and diverse cultures across industries, misalignment between what is being taught in schools and the kinds of skills and competencies industries are looking for, and maybe most importantly, access to a foundational network of industry experts who are willing to provide support for students entering the workforce. Cassell emphasizes that, “industry and education need to start working more closely together if we really want to create the conditions for youth to be successful in today’s job market.”

“Our district is working hard to provide hands-on, career-connected learning experiences at all levels. From our South Alberta Flight Academy and South Alberta Fire Rescue Academies to offering Dual Credit Programming with nearby colleges, we are helping students explore and earn credits and certifications in career pathways. Access to virtual experts, virtual field trips and other customized learning experiences through Digital Human Library will be a great addition to our programming. We are thankful for Landor Technology’s investment in students across our vast school district.” Cammie Kannekens, District Instructional Lead, Prairie Rose Public Schools

Landor Technology has paved a new path for businesses across industries to re-engage with the K-12 Canadian education system in ways that promote culturally responsive teaching and learning, and prepare our future workforce for success.  If you’re a business interested in becoming a sponsor, or a school district in need of support, you can learn more about Digital Human Library’s Sponsor a School Program here.
