SAULT STE. MARIE, Ont. — If the Liberal's form the next Ontario government, leader Kathleen Wynne says she will prepare students for the jobs of tomorrow by investing $150 million in a three-year technology and learning fund.

Wynne made the announcement while making a campaign stop at Holy Cross Catholic School in Sault Ste. Marie on Tuesday morning.

The fund will be used to purchase tablets, software, cameras and other IT resources for teachers and students and help schools share innovative teaching approaches. The money will also be used for professional development to help teachers integrate technology into the classrooms.
