Google Translate Limitations Disclaimer

The electronic translation service on the Toronto District School Board website is hosted by Google Translate, a third party service. The TDSB does not guarantee or warrant the reliability, accuracy or completeness of any translated information.

The quality of the translation will vary in some of the languages offered by Google. Google Translate is a free service and currently offers translation in over 100 languages, but does not capture all languages or dialects.

The basic translation goal is to capture the general intention of the original English material. Before you act on translated information, we encourage you to confirm any facts that are important to you or may affect any decisions you make.

The Toronto District School Board is committed to equity and community engagement, and by providing this tool, we are making our information more accessible to families whose first language is not English.

In today’s digital age, technology is actively used in classrooms to engage, enhance and support learning. From computers to mobile devices, tablets to interactive video games we are working to engage students with technology.

Online Collaboration

As a TDSB student, you can use Google's G Suite for Education. Your Google Drive gives you unlimited storage for an online digital portfolio of your work and are you are able to share documents and collaborate with classmates and teachers. You can access this through AW using your TDSB login ID and password. If you do not already have this information, you can get it from your teacher.

Another component of your digital portfolio is your Home Drive (H:\). This storage space is limited to 2GB and you should take some time to clean up this storage location so that you do not reach your quota limit. Look for larger and older files when cleaning up – check out the instructions for how to perform these searches. Remember that your digital portfolio is your responsibility to maintain and keep if you are graduating or leaving the TDSB. 


Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

Students may choose to bring their own devices to school (such as smartphones and laptops). It is important to make sure that devices are used responsibly, do not interfere with learning and respect the rights of others at all times.

With your personal device, you can log in to the TDSB wifi using these instructions.
